was a very good day...

Mama + Zoey

after all, we created our very first Springtime Fairy house in the backyard.

Springtime Fairy House

If you remember from this post, we have been waiting very patiently to create our very own Fairy House out of little found bits of nature.

I have to say too, that this was really a neat thing to do together. I think the gathering of all the materials was the best. We had some things that we had been setting aside in the garage all winter to be used for upcoming Fairy House building, so we got some things out from our stash in the garage and then gathered many additional twigs, leaves, pinecones, bark and pine needles.

Zoey was very particular in how this was to be done. You'll perhaps notice the nice rug that covers the entire floor of the Fairy House...

and the bed, complete with a sky-light overhead (I don't know that that part was planned).

There are two doorways, one for each fairy to use...

and even a broom and a rake were found for the fairies to use. This was such a fun way to spend the afternoon.

It feels so good to be able to finally go outside and feel the warm sunshine again!
