Tooth Fairy Doors for Boys & Girls

Do you believe in the magic of Fairies?  I love anything to do with Magical Folk and one of my favourite items to make and paint are my Fairy Doors. They have always been a popular gift for children of all ages and are great for both boys & girls. I love that the tradition of the Tooth Fairy is still so prevalent.
Here are some of the Tooth Fairy Doors. Like my other Fairy Doors I can make these in any colour and in different sizes. These Fairy Doors have a little tooth painted on them.

Wooden Personalised Tooth Fairy Door

All the details are hand painted and are all different.....

Turquoise Tooth Fairy Door

the Doors are varnished and have a shimmer of sparkle..........

Handpainted Door for the Tooth Fairy

they can be painted in any colour...........

Small Fairy Door

they come with a sticky pad to attach to a door or wall, or a bedpost or the skirting board.....

A Tooth Fairy Door with a Scroll
they also have a little attachment you can add with a sticky pad so they can be free standing, ideal for on a shelf, bookcase or cabinet....... 

A Door & a Scroll for a boy
the doors are all hand cut and painted so no two are exactly the same.

Small Tooth Fairy Doors

Anything that makes the loss of a tooth less scary, painful or upsetting must be a good thing, and to be given a few penny's or pounds in exchange is certainly a bonus.

The larger doors are made with pine and are approximately 31/2 x 41/2 inches, if you prefer your measurements in metric this is about 9 x 11.5 cms
The small doors are mdf and are 2 x 3 inches (5 x 7.5 cms)

As usual you can find some of these in my online shops (follow the links on the right) or you can commission one to your own specifications. Just send me a message.

It's time for Handmade Monday, it's now being held at it's new location over at Lucy Blossom Crafts.

Wishing you a happy and magical week

Valentine Cards & Gift Hearts all in one

Is it too early to be thinking about Valentines Day

Well I know that it's never too early to be thinking about Love

Last year I made Hanging Hearts for Valentines Day, this year I have more Hearts but this time I've attached them to hand drawn cards. These do well for other occasions such as Weddings or Anniversaries, or 'Just Because' after all we don't need an excuse to tell someone we love them.

A Valentine Card and Gift in one

 There is a mixture of Cream or White Cards and each one has a different hand drawn design.

Love on a Hanging Heart

Well,you didn't think they'd last past the photo session did you?
Mmmm they were yummy.

Ladybirds & Hearts

 The Hearts can be taken off the card and hung up

Some of these are in my online shops, you can get to them via the links in the sidebar or you can message me on this blog.

Have you already made anything special for Valentines Day?  or have you yet to make something?

Have a great week

Away with the Fairies

I'd like to show you one of my painted plaques, this is a commissioned plaque for a business, the colours were chosen by the customer, aren't they lovely.

The pink and green work so well together.
I decided to keep within the chosen colour scheme when painting the Ladybirds, also known as Ladybugs, I've seen these sweet little critters dressed in red, in orange and in yellow but I do love these pink ones.

I thought a couple of cute little toadstools would look good with the plaque, they can sit on a shelf near the sign, of course they had to be matching colours, have you spotted the little Faery Door on the tree trunk?

Here is a closer look at the Toadstools. These were very well received and now live in Australia.

I'm off to get more painting done......
