The Driftwood Fairy House ~ Julie McLaughlin


"Welcome to my imagination and the miniature world of fairies! For your consideration, I offer my latest OOAK (One of a Kind) FAIRY HOUSE dollhouse made from SOLID WOOD with beautiful organic DRIFTWOOD elements. I incorporated 20+ interesting pieces of the driftwood to form this tiny abode. All but one piece of driftwood was left intact (uncut, as found) to form into interesting WINDOWS, NICHES, HAND RAILS, STAIRS, etc., letting the natural forms create the fantasy architecture! A leaded glass BAY WINDOW and glass-paned TURRET are attached to the 6-sided DINING AREA which perches atop the structure accessed by curvy stairs and railing. GENUINE CRYSTALS, LOTS of sparkly VINTAGE JEWELRY bits, pretty SILK FLORALS, MOSSES, and realistic faux MUSHROOMS bring this miniature structure's details to life."


"This home is enchanting from ALL SIDES with surprises and embellishments to be discovered. Underneath, accessed by the back, is the fairy's SLEEPING CHAMBER. It is paved with slate and has an outdoor BATHING AREA. This home sits on a wooden TURN TABLE BASE for easy viewing and handling."

"The home is simply furnished for a basic fairy lifestyle. All furniture has been handcrafted or embellished by myself to be rustic, yet beautiful, custom made to fit into the spaces provided. DINING AREA INCLUDES: Table, chair, buffet, lighted lantern (battery operated) and flower gathering basket. SLEEPING CHAMBER INCLUDES: Bed, trunk (filled with crystals), night table with working lantern (battery operated) and antique doily crocheted rug. MANY MORE ITEMS and minis are permanently affixed and cannot be moved, such as the driftwood BATHTUB accessorized with tiny soap, sponge, crystal shampoo bottle, etc. "
