Fairy Houses of the Maine Coast
The cultural phenomenon of "fairy houses" originated spontaneously on a few Maine islands, but in recent years, these charming, wee shelters made from leaves, moss, twigs, stones, bark, shells, feathers, and other found items have caught the imaginations of parents and children from everywhere. This book showcases outstanding examples of fairy houses made exclusively from natural materials and delves into the history and folklore associated with garden and woodland fairies.

This book is just a beautiful piece of artwork AND a glimpse into the magic of the fairy world. I couldn't stop looking at it. A lovely gift for anyone who loves fairies. It made my heart happy. (Posted on 5/24/12)
