This one is for my Mom. I plan on attaching it to her deck somewhere and seeing how long it will take for her to find it.. Well, that’s just a fairy dream. I won’t be able to endure the suspense. I’ll be giving it to her and letting her find the “right” location herself.

The wood:
door: poplar (stained and poly’d)
frame: cedar (stained)
hinges: bent necklace wire

Does the Bluestone act as a security peep hole?

Nice job MsDebbie!!

thanks Lew.
Yes, the bluestone is the peep hole.. well, that’s what I think anyway. Not sure how the Fairies use it!

Debbie, this is very nice.

But how will the fairies find the door?

i saw this post and was thinking “she is gonna have to start selling these before she runs out of wall space”. i guess giving them away is close enough. another great addition to your portfolio.

Hi Ms. Debbie;

I bet you never figured on getting into the door business.

Nice job.

I’m really enjoying this series Debbie. What a wacky idea; I just might have to do some!

So Debbie, what’s next fairy windows and fairy chimneys? Will you go into the fairy furniture? Do they need wing closets, landing strips? Will you put a tooth (aka mail) slot in the door for the tooth fairy? I could see you needing fairies to help you keep with this hole in the market. Careful what you are wishing for, I guess.
