Lovely Fairy Garden Houses

No child but must remember laying his head in the grass, staring into the infinitesimal forest and seeing it grow populous with fairy armies.

If we opened our minds to enjoyment, we might find tranquil pleasures spread about us on every side. We might live with the angels that visit us on every sunbeam, and sit with the fairies who wait on every flower.

~Samuel Smiles~

I heard about the fun time you girls had in making this fairy house (and how Dad was cringing as you broke the Spode :) )

Yes we had fun.Fortunately the *Spode* was already broken. Just had to get it to the right size chunks! I"ve been saving those broken cups for a long time.
