I’ve seen a few of these here and enjoyed them very much.
This was a quick little fun piece I tried, and now I think I have to do more.
It’s carved in white pine, painted with goauche for color and coated with boiled linseed oil.
I was inspired by the fun ones here in the projects posted. Mine has a bit of the Swedish porch look to it.

Nice job. I’m begining to think the winter contest should be a fairy door contest.

Very nice, much better than mine.
I put one on a retaining wall outside, when my grandkids saw it they couldn’t understand how the fairys get in and out till I explained that fairys are quite magical. That seemed to settle it for them but they watch it closely and wanted to make one to take home for their yard.

I haven’t enjoyed ours as much as my daughters have, but I wouldn’t be surprised to find more of them pop up. I think they are a little addicting!

Christina, you have gotten this project just right and nicely done. It’s a wonderful eye catcher.

Sorry about the double post. I don’t exactly know what happened except to say that one of those posts must have gotten hung up in a black hole up in cyber space somewhere.
