About

Boy Mom Life!

I am surrounded by testosterone!!! I'm the mom of 2 busy little boys, wife to a handsome Hubby and even my Cat is a big beautiful Orange Tom Cat! I needed some feminine magic in my life!

My family and I love getting out and spending time in both the urban and rural parts of our beautiful city, doing geocaches and wilderness walks.
During one of these walks, my littlest little and I came across a gnome home on a tree stump in the middle of someones yard and I adored it! (but then again I would, I've been collecting gnomes since I was a little girl!) Then in the same day a video of a very talented woman making a fairy house with recycled materials came across my path and I just knew I had to create something with that kind of whimsy and magic in my life!
I also really resonated with the recycled/re-purposed art movement, so all my houses are created with a good portion of recycled materials.
Most of my fairy houses also have some kind of function (even if it isn't a major thing I still like them to do something!) So secret book safe fairy houses and whimsical tissue box covers were born!
I create my "mud" with recycled egg cartons and drink trays reinforced with drywall putty and glue, and all the cardboard structures are made from cardboard found in my home or my hubby's office(most often from cookie,cracker and pizza boxes as I feed my busy boys!)
There are also many natural objects incorporated like moss and twigs and small stones and shells, often these are found when we are out and about on our adventures.
As I create these little houses I always image that they are a part of a little fairy village and that as you acquire "fairy property" it somehow creates as portal to that village right inside your home! I hear that if you leave some sweets for the wee folk that they will bestow favors to you and bless your home with magic and whimsy!

I wish you all a "fairy" magical day! - Tammara (realtor to the Village of Fae)
