fairy houses, castles and more

so hello there wonderful bloggy family and new bloggy friends good morning and today i shall share with you the pictures of the tiny fairy house my daughter and i made- every year during summer we all get together and make a tiny house which we place hidden in the garden for fairies to live in.

this year was a little sad, other years it was all my children joining in making the tiny house and its contents – because you can’t just build the house you have to make a tiny bed and seating etc, everything needed for the fairy of today, but this year there was only me and my youngest she is 9 so was the only one left who believed in and cared about fairies 😦 , sigh, my middle two are teenagers and my oldest is nearly twenty one and off to work so me and the littlest were the only ones left.

so we were determined to make it super and i think we succeeded,

yup its a luxury fairy bed

yup its a luxury fairy bed

it really is quite amazing what can be made from stuff lying around the home, well lying around my home at least. luckily because of my sewing we have huge amounts of material, lace etc

for the main structure we used empty cereal boxes and a lot of cellotape, the ‘wallpaper’ is pretty paper from a collection of paper i have for our origami adventure,- every weekend one of the days i spend with all the kids and we do arty type things anything as long as its creative. i usually try and get them try something new every couple of weeks, it’s good for the challenge not just them but me as well, ok so it was our latest crafty adventure was to learn origami, seriously i have to warn you, origami is EVIL it’s impossible i tell you!, honestly most things i have ever tried i can do, but origami, oh my god, we had a book on how to do it starting with simple projects, i was doing ok, a box, yup got it, some envelope thing, yup got it, swan nope,star nope and nope again, tulip? pffffft whats on tv

so yes i have a pile of pretty paper that will never be folded into shapes, ever.

made good wallpaper though.

it's a sofa ^-^

it’s a sofa ^-^

so my daughter made the cute table and she even made a book for the fairies to read. the thing that you can just see in the background  is my attempt at making a cooker for the fairies after which we decided that fairies probably only ate raw food anyway.

it's a door ! but you probably guessed that didn't you

it’s a door ! but you probably guessed that didn’t you

so after spending an afternoon covered in glue, cellotape, and bits of paper we were finally ready to pop it in the garden, at this point i must say that we do his every year yet whenever we go to put the new one out there is nothing left of the old one, absolutely nothing, i know right, weird,  so once again zero trace of the old one and we decide this time to put it in our tiny front garden, perhaps it would last longer there,

yay one luxury fairy waiting for a tiny fairy to come live in it

yay one luxury fairy home waiting for a tiny fairy to come live in it

next time i will show you the fairy castle we are making but this one is way bigger we made it big enough for my daughter to sit in, a little bit squashed but she can fit in, it has taken up an awful lot of glitter paint and two weeks of creating and we still haven’t finished it !

also took the children out for the day last week and we visited a roman ruins not far from us, it was a lovely day all sunshiney and warm and we had a lovely picnic  and whilst we were there they all got the chance to play with some mosaic tiles -you know just to immerse in the roman experience- so this was my youngest child’s creation -it’s flowers she tells me, yay great i love flowers how sweet and lovely

it's flowers

it’s flowers- i demand you are impressed with my daughters mosaic skills,

then my second daughter who is quiet, studious, a mini me  shows  me this; her creation;

a heart! how lovely

a heart! how lovely

a  heart! oh it’s all so beautiful, what a lovely day, the sun was shining, we were having such a lovely time, memories in the making, ok son let’s have a look at your creation;

he could hadrly talk for giggling, indeed it's most i have heard him giggling for well ages - it's poo he finally utters

he could hardly talk for giggling, indeed it’s most i have heard him giggling for, um, well, ages – it’s poo he finally utters

hmmmm so my son has created, um, some poo, he is off again fits of giggles can be heard throughout the ancient roman ruins, he gasps and splutters and as he finds a breath he finally says ‘look i even put steam and flies around it’ and off he goes giggling until red in the face, ah i am so proud, such a proud happy mummy, o.O

words somehow have left me i find no cute statement i ca fit with this a picture says a thousand words, or in this case just one, it was all that was needed

words somehow have left me; i find no cute statement i can fit with this, a picture says a thousand words, or in this case just one, it was all that was needed

he then shows me this, just in case i had somehow missed the subtlety in his humour,

oh how these wonderful summer memories will embroider the fabric of our family life

here is a lovely picture of the roman site to restore the general loveliness of this day trip

lovely english countryside which has roman stuff buried underneath it

there now that’s better, and just to make sure here is a cute picture to wipe away any memory of my wonderful son’s artwork, so proud , soo proud,
