It's Only Ink! Fairy Houses...Everywhere!

It's Only Ink!
Fairy Houses...Everywhere!

Every year when on vacation my children and I build fairy houses. They enjoy the fact that fairies may possibly exist and that if they do...then they'll be using their fairy houses. Their designs are usually simple, but as they've grown older, they've added more detail and items to their houses such as chairs, rugs, pillows, even plates and spoons on the dining room table.
"Fairy Houses...Everywhere!" by Barry and Tracy Kane is filled with beautiful photographs (taken by Barry) of all types of fairy houses in many different places.
There's fairy houses in woodlands, on the beach, in meadows, backyards, and even in the air! There are fairy boats, houses, cottages, and mansions.
The fairy houses throughout this 56-page book are constructed from events and workshops taken throughout New England and are built using natural materials such as pinecones, shells, acorns, leaves, and sticks.
The whole idea of building a fairy house is to entice a fairy to stop by for a visit.
Building a fairy house can be addictive for all ages and requires you to explore the outdoors, be creative, and have tons of fun. Fairy houses are everywhere!
This husband and wife team obviously work well together and they've put together a charming and inspiring book for all ages.
This reviewer and her three children highly recommends "Fairy Houses...Everywhere!" by Barry and Tracy Kane.
