More Fairytale Cottages


'Peace' in South Korean

Traditional wedding costumes paper dolls for Mexico and Korea

Today is another fantasy, fairytale kind of day!
It's 101 degrees Fahrenheit outside.
Sunny with no clouds or chance of rain...
I'd say it's high time for a little fairy-tale dreaming!

Fairy tale Toad House,

I have had way too much fun looking at way cool cottages
with fairies, elves and such.
So naturally, I have to share with you!

'Brighton's Fairy House'

Just as I said yesterday, I don't have much if any information on many
of the fairy cottages that I found.
If you know of a name, or where they are located,
please drop  me a note so I can credit the photos.

I adore the look of a thatched roof!
I understand they need a fair amount of upkeep, and replacement every so many years. So, they would be ideal to rent!!!
I've always wondered what the bug factor is with them?

rounded thatched roof,

"Come fairies, take me out of this dull world,
for I would ride with you upon the wind
and dance upon the mountains
like a flame!"

- W. B. Yeats

unknown source, probably Dover Books

'Commoner's Quarters',

'Storybook House' is 12 inches high

I found some great vintage fairytale house type paper dolls,
many of them from OrigamiBears, but also gathered elsewhere.
