Cliffhugger Studios

On May 1st of 2010, I awoke at 3 am and was compelled to sit down and Google "fairy houses". I have no idea why. It just had to be done. I was dismayed by most of what I saw: houses made of glitter, glitz, bling, and lots of other things Fairies are not.

But I found a place to learn about real fairy houses. A master builder, John Crawford, taught me the secret: www.fairywoodland.com

Today, I help local Fairies make what I think are the most authentic fairy cottages possible. Then we (the Fae and I) write stories about them.

Fairy houses are not planned, designed, or shaped. At least not by me. (In fact, the Fae just howl with laughter at the idea.)

When I work with these materials, I cannot see what's happening since most of it happens under the sand. I just ask the Faries to take over and make something pleasing to them.

I work in a tiny studio perched on a cliff, at the bottom of a garden, overlooking a vast mountain range.

I am a writer of children and adult fairy stories. As usual, the Fae have a strong hand in it: www.fairycottages.com for more stories.

Thanks for being the guardian of this fairy cottage! I will get it out to you as soon as possible. You should know that this is a portal to Faery. There is one special stone on the cottage that, if you touch it and ask nicely, will open the gates between our world and Faery. You only have to figure out which one that is...

I ship via UPS, between three and five days after purchase, but it's usually the next business day. For that reason, I can only ship to an actual address, not a P.O. Box number.

Fairy cottages usually do fine in shipment, but if anything is damaged in the shipping process, please contact me immediately so we can resolve the issue.

If you need expedited shipping, it is available for an extra charge. Please let me know immediately so I can give you a quote.

Additional policies and FAQs

Unfortunately, custom orders cannot be accommodated.

Fairy cottages are wrapped in many layers of bubble wrap and styrofoam peanuts. Please delight your local fairies by recycling the shipping materials -- especially peanuts!
