On it's way!!!

Oh goodie - I have finally decided on a Fairy Door!!
Some of you may remember a few months back I did one of my Friday Theme Days with a fairy door theme....

"Not all fairies like to live in the garden. Some are metropolitan dwellers who take to suburban homes and apartment buildings. But how do they get there and where do they live? Well, if you want fairies to enter your home, you need to install a fairy door.
Fairy doors can only be opened inwards using Fairy magic and if they are forced open the fairies will see this as a break and enter and will flee to safer pastures."

I have wanted one for my home for such a long time now but just haven't been able to find the perfect one - until now!!
Last night I was floating through one of my favorite websites and a great online kids boutique, Monkeytail and Wellington. I thought I'd check out the Christmas Gift Ideas tab and there they were - Design Your Own Fairy Doors!

You get to choose from 8 gorgeous styles and the pick whatever color door and whatever color trim your heart desires!!!!! For our home it will be the door design no.2 in classic red with white trim. I just LOVE the mini door knocker, door knob and letter slot - so cute!!!

Each fairy door comes with a miniature key and a vial of fairy dust, and instructions on how to install your fairy door. Fairy doors attach to the wall with double sided tape and are removable, so if you move home your fairy can move with you! Each door is 1/12th the size of a regular human door, which is approximately 25cm high by 15cm wide.

The plan is to 'install' the fairy door late this Christmas eve then just wait for our girls to notice it in the coming days...... I can see many years of baby teeth being left outside the fairy door for the tooth fairy to take and maybe swap for a treat? and anytime anyone wants to make a wish we can just write a tiny note and leave it out for the wish fairy to collect!! I just have to decide what room of the house the fairy door should be placed so that the fairies feel the most welcome....
