Fairy Houses for Holiday and Everyday Decor - Just in Time for Christmas!

EDITED to add:  As of 12/4/13, my banner of my blog shows most of the houses that are up in my shop (and one just about to post) all together on my fireplace mantle as part of a Christmas/Winter Display.  Aren't they adorable??


I promised better pictures, here they are:

These are the houses that are available in my shop as of today.

They make an impressive display on my book shelves in my bedroom. 
This is the largest of the houses - it's beautiful.  The paper on the front is the title page of the song - 'Savoyarde' by Carl Reinecke.  It has the same dark red roof that the other two music houses have - all three look beautiful together.
Available in my shop HERE.
This picture shows the medium sized house inside the large house - they fit each other perfectly.  You can put the small house inside the medium and then all three will take up the room of only one house.  Great for storage and shipping.  If you buy two or all three sizes I can combine your shipping.  Convo me for details.
I very rarely make these big houses - this is currently the only one available.  You can really show off the Antique Sheet Music with this house.  So beautiful.  You can store and play with some dollhouse furniture with this house.  It is not for small children to play with, though - older children, maybe.  ;)  I think it looks great on a shelf or above a fireplace.  Just about anywhere.  Great at Christmas and anytime.

The lighting kind of washed out the color of the pictures a bit - it is darker in person and better able to see the music.  I'm not sure why the pictures just don't do it justice.
Here are all three music houses together...
 Not only do they nest inside each other - you could even stand them on top of each other - they balance easily on their chimneys.  Not sure why you'd want to do that, but I thought it was cute so I thought I'd share it:

And don't forget the two little French Lit houses - they are still available right now, though the medium size sold out fast last month.  I am making one more medium French house right now before I stop for the holidays and I don't know when I'll make more - they are very labor intensive.

And if you want more details on your house - this is in my shop as well...

It's covered in pages from a Vintage English book on composers.  Very cute!  It has black shutters, a Floral vintage design paper door and a button door knob.

Maybe the Borrowers live there!  ;)

Big, Medium, Small - All the Sizes of the Fairy Houses Together

I'm going to be posting the largest sized Music Fairy House soon in my shop and I wanted to give a little preview/overview of how the houses look in relation to each other...

This is just from my camera on my phone late at night - much better pictures to come.  But on the middle shelf you can see big, medium and small houses in relation to each other - all red roof and Antique Sheet Music.  They look adorable together, no?  And bottom shelf has the two black roof Vintage French Book papered houses. 

Hope you all had a happy weekend.  Busy finishing up orders to ship and new items for the shop before Christmas.  Busy, busy, busy.  Orion is helping, of course.  ;)

Or maybe not...

Here he is around Halloween doing his Hitchcat pose:

And here he is just hangin'

If you look at his baby pics a few months ago you'll notice he's much fluffier and pretty!  He's growing up very handsome, indeed.  In fact, he's very smart and visual - he's watching me type this right now - sitting on my knee watching the letters go across the screen.  He's telling me to be careful with my spelling and my grammar is atrocious.  ;)

10 more days until Thanksgiving!!  Gobble Gobble

New Fairy Houses - Shop Update - Music and French Book Paper - Great Christmas Gifts and Decor

Hi, the last set of Fairy Houses sold out of the Medium sized FAST so I am putting up the next batch I have ready.  Only one medium sized one this time (last time I put two up and they sold together super fast), but I'm working on one other.  It will be a French house, but for now - here are two more Sheet Music houses and one more small French house being put up in my shop today and tomorrow...

The largest house in the middle is a beautiful house made of Brahms Sheet Music - It has his name in the upper right corner and Opus 117.  It's music inspired by a Scottish folk song.  It has many beautiful details.  Check out the listing HERE in my shop for more.

The smaller house was made with paper from the same book - they look adorable together.

Here I added the other small French house to the grouping, but there is also another medium French house with a red roof and black shutters available in my shop, too.  So be sure to check out my other listings for more. 

And I thought it would be cute to take a photo of the three small houses together.  Three little piggies could live in them...  ;)
So be sure to check my shop as I add the other houses.  I am making just one more house right now (medium sized French house) and I might add another one or two if the demand is high, but these are so much work and I have a lot of other items to work on so these will remain limited in number as usual.  Snatch them up while you can! 

Remember:  each one is unique - I use only real antique sheet music and book paper - I make no photocopies - they are each unique and all hand painted, antiqued all over, sealed with a matte finish.  They make GREAT gifts or Christmas displays or year round decor.  They are even cuter in person and every time I sell one it hurts to give it up.  I've yet to keep one for myself as I always want to make them available to customers as I don't make many, but one of these days I really will have to promise one for myself.  :)
