An obsession with charming detailed fairy homes and whimsical accessories!

My little shop started with my young daughter's budding fairy obsession. As a somewhat "older mom", I was looking for non-traditional ways to grow my girl's imagination and promote the love of outdoors that I myself had been blessed with. The idea of magical creatures blessing our garden opened an ongoing conversation, and the concept of fairies dabbling in many of the beautiful things we take for granted absolutely delighted her. We started talking about what fairies create, where we could imagine seeing them, and how we could attract them to our home.

While shopping for items to establish our fairy garden, I noticed the mass produced homes lacked the detail and sense of whimsy we were looking for. I thought to myself, "I can create that, and maybe I can even do it better". So, after my daughter was down for the night, my first attempt at a fairy house was born of glue and moss and stone.

Then the fairy obsession began to become mine as well. I found myself compelled to make more and more creations, and spent undue amount of time peering at the details that adorned my homes and furniture. Color, materials, branches, flowers, pine cone shingles, and tiny embellishments were all things I began to play with. Fairly soon, it was a rare day that went by without some time spent crafting.

I'd like to share my one of a kind creations with others who relish the tiny details, and will allow their imaginations to run wild. Who possibly want little, charmed creatures flitting about their homes. I hope you like my shop, and welcome!

Shop policies

Last updated on December 31, 2014
Welcome to TinkerWhims, your shop for inspirational fairy homes, fairy dollhouses, and fairy accessories! I accept custom orders, and work very hard to make one of a kind pieces that welcome fairy mischief into your life and home.

Accepted payment methods

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I have accurate descriptions and multiple photographs of all of my work. If your order arrives and you would like to return it I will gladly refund the purchase price upon receipt of the returned item in re-sellable condition. Shipping costs will not be refunded. I want every customer to be happy and in love with the pieces they buy!
I accept payment via direct checkout and Etsy gift cards. If you wish to cancel an order you must do so before it ships. If you cancel before shipment (which is often as quick as next day), you will receive a full refund.
I try to ship through USPS priority mail whenever possible. The only exceptions are with fairy dollhouses that are so large priority mail becomes cost prohibitive. All packages are tracked and insured, no exceptions:) If you have special shipping needs (would like the package signed for, etc.), please convo me prior to purchase to make sure I can accommodate your request.
Additional policies and FAQs
Check my blog at tinkerwhims.com/. I accept custom orders with a deposit of half down before I start creating, with the remaining balance due prior to shipping. I send clients multiple photographs of their order for their approval during the process, and before the final payment is due. Please feel free to contact me with your ideas!
