Have a lovely Valentine’s Day

This tiny fairy door is handmade with red maple branches found on the ground on our property in Maine, along with natural grapevine I collected by hand. This one shown, just happened to have a natural heart inside its curl, perfect for Valentine’s Day, or Galentine’s Day.

For the person who loves trees and all that they provide, this is a beautiful gift for the Wee Folk, to leave outside under a tree. (All of the materials are impervious to the weather.) Or as a collectible on your window shelf, to let a little bit of nature shine through on these long winter months.

These teeny doors are not just physical points of ingress and egress; they are symbolic of the Wee Folk's eternal struggle with human nature and a portal to The Other Side.

Note: each fairy door is one-of-a-kind and each one looks different.
