We all have them

Projects that have no end motive other than the

pure delight of creating

And they can take weeks or months

because they are such a labor of love

At least that is my thinking on it.

Several months ago I pulled out one of my little

wooden birdhouses purchased with the intent

of creating........a faerie house, of course.

I painted it pink and let it sit for a while

and then every few days I would pick it up before bedtime

and add a little more..

and a little more...

and then I could not stop...

Until it was so blinged out

that even Mr. J. looked wide eyed at it

and exclaimed..

"You think it's a little much?"

"WHAT?"....."I'm still in Marie Antoinette mode...NOTHING is too much!"

Well, weeks later I am finished (I think)

I believe I have enough rhinestones,


and glittered lace

It measures 6 1/2 " tall.

Back side (shot taken a bit crooked..sorry)

View from the top

Now that it's finished.........

it may head to the shop....

and I am thinking I will start a Tiffany blue one.

Finished constructions date....likely January or February

One can build a full sized home in that amount of time out here.

Rella, I just love it. You really are super creative. I know what you mean about taking a while to do a project. I am like that too. In fact, I think the waiting in between helps my ideas grow.
Anyways, this little bird house is adorable, and perfect.

What a fun idea, making a faerie house! And your faerie is so sweet, and I love her "blinged out" house. Positively dreamy.
Thanks for sharing.

Happy Friday!

Hey! This is great!!! Too much?!? MOL - of course it's not too much until YOU say it's too much. Silly human boys! That's why they don't create like this, they simply wouldn't get it! It's beautiful!
