The Fairy Ring ~ Etsy Wooden Fairy Dolls

I came across the Etsy store The Fairy Ring  today and could not close my mouth.  You cannot visit this site without aching to purchase a few wooden fairies (with names like Lavender and Hydrangea), toadstools, and tea sets.  These wooden creations are magical.  Here is your answer for a heirloom gift to create hours of magical, free, imaginative play for the little fairy lover in your life.  When I came across The Fairies from Fairyland  showcased on Tiffany’s site, I just had to share, they simply made me happy.  Check out these pictures:

This Etsy store was created by a mom wanting to share her love of fairies. You can feel her love for this enchanted land with the wonderful descriptions she’s used with each product.  Read this description of Lavender ~  “A wonderful and magical thing just happened in Fairyland. Lavender found a magic mushroom and when she takes a small taste she grows to just the right size to play with her toddler friends. Now she is ready to join your little one for hours of fun.”  OMG I want them all…not only are the little play sets adorable, there is a wooden fairy doll tea party play set with storage box and the inside of box is showcased in the first picture above.  The detail is just incredible.  You can also request your fairy dolls be customized with certain hair color or dress color.  I love the concept, the product, and it’s guaranteed to dust off a memory of earlier times where trolls and goblins made mischief and danced with fairies.



Celebrate Your Little Girl’s Love For Fairies – Make A Toadstool!

While at our Ecology Centre today, I noticed their adorable mushroom stool / toadstool inspired chairs for little kids to pull over to the craft table.  As I was moving the toadstools I noticed they were custom made, very earthy as the bark was still on the base of the wood.  They were so adorable I got to thinking how I could have these made for my girls who are already big fairy fans.  The stools were so unique and nature inspired – you almost expected to see a little gnome or fairy lurking nearby.

Fairies are very popular with young girls right now.  I believe Disney is releasing a big ‘Disney Fairy’ movie this Fall and the less commercialized, nature loving butterfly girls ‘The Little Humbugs’ are gaining serious momentum.  Celebrate your child’s love for fairies by making her a custom toadstool for her room or play area.  We know how expensive room decor is for children’s spaces, save money and create it yourself!  I found the video and instructions on Martha Stewart and they don’t look all that hard to make.  We know from my trials making home made play dough, I’m not a naturally crafty person….but I think I can do this!  Before I list the instructions…check out the picture of the finished toadstool from Martha’s site.  You could buy felt to match the colors of your child’s room – these are just SO cute!
