"Come with me, and you'll be in a world of pure imagination..." (Gene Wilder is bigtime inspiration for me. #makebelieve )

Welcome to Fiddly Bits For Fairies- where whimsical worlds of miniature magic are brought to life!

It began outside.
I love outside. I love plants, and I love foraging and collecting. Making fairy houses and fairy garden furniture happened accidentally, simply because I had an abundance of earthly treasures that I didn't know quite what to do with. Bunches of dry, noisy poppy pods, bits of papery birch and deeply grooved oak bark, buckets of sappy, fragrant conifer cones... they were literally begging to be spared from the compost and given some artistic attention!

Being a creature of curiosity, whimsy, and fantastical fairytales, I set out to make something that could translate all these fiddly bits of found nature into pure, joyful magic for the soul. I wanted to find a way to bring the beauty and playfulness of the outdoors inside, into homes and hearts, and give permanence to otherwise living, organic, ever-changing materials, while somehow inspiring a connection with our own inner child and the weightless wonder of imagination...

With a focus on fine craftsmanship and attention to the smallest detail, I create truly unique miniatures for fairy gardens and dollhouses to satisfy your tiny things obsession, using natural materials sustainably harvested from our bountiful earth.

The bark, twigs, acorns and cones used in my work grow right here in Wisconsin, mostly on family owned land. The pods, seed capsules, dried flowers and greenery are grown in my or my friend's gardens, and their diversity and seasonal availability factor greatly into the design of each piece.

Many of the embellishments I use are repurposed or upcycled from my weird and wonderful, long curated collection of fabrics, jewelry, baubles and 'fiddly bits'. Every piece becomes its own mixed-media collage of artificial and natural textures, shapes and colors meant to evoke the playfulness, magic, and joy of a (tiny) enchanted forest.
