BTRT Patterns (on Etsy)

Everyone needs one in their life...
A small door~ anywhere~ in a tree, on a shelf, along the baseboards of a building or bedroom... a fairy door!

While I may not 'believe' in fairies, I believe in the wonder and whimsy (and, depending on your sources in lore, malice and babysnatching!) they represent in our cynical world ("there are more things on heaven and earth, Horatio..."). I believe that a fairy door offers a delightful opportunity to imagine, to be caught up, even if only for a moment, in the maybe and the what if. In the wonder with which we are born and all too often lose all too soon.

A fairy door can be placed anywhere as an invitation for the wee folk to come in to our world, or even more fantastically, for us to peek into theirs! Children, naturally, love a fairy door, and creative parents can even use it as an entry way for the Tooth Fairy. 

The idea of the fairy door bloomed in Ann Arbor with the Urban Fairy House Project a number of years ago.

Rowan Tree Fairy Doors are made with locally sourced, sustainably harvested pine (Northern Ontario) and hand burned and painted (non-toxic, ap certified). Each one is one of a kind and sealed with our own beeswax wood polish for a safe and natural glow and light protection. Find them in the  'Wood Toys' section of the Etsy shop. ♥♥

I love the colors! We have one that is wood, which is beautiful for outside but I bet these colorful ones would be delightful for a child's room inside!
