When I saw the "Life Moves" Fairy House on the Moss Brae website, I was instantly dazzled. I thoroughly enjoy using these exquisite cards for lots of salutations, i.e., Birthdays, Weddings, New Home, Births, Showers, Congratulations, and most of all, letter writing. I wrote Ms. Carol, contractor extraordinaire, if she could make me a card, depicting the "Life Moves" Fairy domicile...AND...SHE DID!!!!! Cannot thank her enough for this, and for creating the most unique, and delightful cards I do believe, I have ever given anyone!!!

About

Fairy Houses Recharge Your Spirit!

Do you believe in fairies too?

I know that there is a different and kinder energy in Fae worlds than in ours. Each house I make is a portal that invites you to come and gently experience this magical and non-human reality.

About 5 years ago I started using a wonderfully flexible sand-cast sculpture process that uses a big box of sand as the mold. I can scoop and scrape shapes, imbed all the wall elements into the sand and cast the shape with a porcelain based resin that quicky hardens without any toxic residue. I can create nearly unlimited shapes. I cast the walls individually and assemble them into the house shape which I then fit with a fine cedar roof (usually cedar, sometimes shells or pinecones).

Each house is totally unique and created with inspiration from the materials used which I gather throughout Washington and Oregon states. I find treasures (ok, sticks and stones and shells, but since I'm part Raven they truly seem like treasures!) from the deep woods, volcanic slopes, rain forests and frigid beaches which bless my home. Each stick and stone is respectfully taken from the environment and approved by my fairy assistants.

My MossyBrae Fairy Houses are sturdy and stable and built to be outside, at least during the least stressful weathers. The resin and cedar roofs easily withstand cold, heat and moisture. If I use materials that won't hold up long outside, like bark, I say so in the description.

I also have a non-profit I run called the Fairy Sand Project. We build houses for fairies that are aiding children and nature spaces that are in trauma situations. Your purchase helps me continue that work. Thank you!

Hello!

Thanks for coming to look at my fairy houses!

Each house is a one of a kind original sculpted using a sand-cast method and made of mainly gathered wood, stones, shells and other pretty objects I come across.

Although it looks like they're put together with sand and may melt in the rain, in reality the center of the walls is a tough cold porcelain resin that is very strong. They will stand up to most any weather, although being brought inside during inclement seasons will extend the life and shimmer of your house for many years.

Each house is also made with various invitations to fairies and earth spirits to inspire the construction into something they consider magical. Mostly they meddle.

Please feel free to send any questions you have!
