Stereotypical?

We found a teeny pumpkin for the fairies, and Ella made this ladder.


Ella's grandma gave her this. It is actually a Christmas ornament.



Somehow, I feel that this project was stereotypically homeschool-y.



Ella loves the Magic Cabin catalogue (well, who doesn't?).



She decided to make a fairy house like the ones that they have there. She has an old tree in the back, called Old Burl. A burl is an outgrowth on a tree http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burl, but she got the name from a book called Tree Girl.



Here's the house. I love the slopey feel to it.
Anyway, Old Burl was willing to give us some rounds from his trunk, and although he is a fallen tree, he is not yet rotten. We measured and made a plan to make the house.



Ella has added these cute little wire figures, as well.


I think the wire dolls have a little bit of a punk rock feel.
So fun.

I'd been thinking about fairies and making some fairy houses or having a fairy tea party outside lately.

It was nice to see your lovely photos. I'm inspired to go check out the book now! Thanks.
