.......HAPPY NEW YEAR !!! Well....what can l say, I've been busy! l have a full on day what with the knitting, the drawing, facebooking, the painting, the dishes, facebooking, washing , making faery doors, facebooking, looking after Ruby, cooking.......wait.....what's that l hear you say.....making faery doors????

Yet, l've been making faery doors , at long last. I've been wanting to make them for ages and while l like the 'human' style of miniature doors and what not, they just arn't rustic and natural enough for me. So l stumbled upon pictures online of wild rustic recycled material houses and lo and behold- my version of faery doors. I love beach combing, particularly for sea glass and drift wood, so l combined the 2 with air dry clay for the doors themselves, and feathers and bells and crystals and bits of old rusty flotsam and jetsome that faeries love to collect. I also making little ladders, and little mushrooms and hats and boots to decorate big task to tackle is Ruby's fairy house!

Here's a sample of some of what l've been making. You can also see more on our Facebook page too

I've named the doors with the house number and a street name.....for instance, the bottom right faery door is ' #1 Moonstone Way, Faery Forrest"....cute l thought.

These are all the doors l have so far using Amethyst crystals, so of course, the faery doors belong to faery houses in Amethyst Avenue!

Again....all of these faery doors have quartz crystals so these are from Clear Quartz Cres, Faery Forrest

Mixed shots ( some repeats) that l might used for a flyer, with wording to be added....maybe l only need to use 1 door....l dunno......another thing to work on!

Back to the grind...this time dinner needs to be where did l put those takeaway menus.......
