Faery Doors

What I’m totes J’adoring this week are Faery Doors. Just type this phrase into google images and I defy you not to sit for hours scrolling through the vast glorious imagery of these beautiful carved creations. Such a simple concept but the careful placement of one against a skirting board somewhere in your home provides an instant magical effect. The trick is knowing just where to put it and if you get it right, it’s guaranteed to transform your room. It’s a great talking point for guests who call round, as tiny as they are, their unique allure makes them impossible not to spot. They come in a variety of decorative shapes and colours, some for indoors and some for the garden, and so many shops and craft stalls have caught onto their popularity now that they’re easy to come by. I had been meaning to purchase one for an age, so mine came as a lovely surprise recently when my boyfriend announced he’d bought me a present in the pouring rain at our local summer Fayre. I was over the moon and now my pastel pink hinged door sits beneath the TV in our living room so that it catches my eye all the time when I’m sat relaxing at the end of a long day. As I glance at it now I’m reminded that perhaps I need some more – maybe one in each room – to ensure the faeries can get in if they need to. I keep wondering which lovely nooks and crannies I could tuck them into to surprise people: one by the sink that you’d spy when sat on the toilet, one below the oven door that you’d spot when taking out your Shepherd’s Pie, one next to the shoe basket in the hallway that would greet you as you ease off your heels after work … If like me you believe that faeries live everywhere below, above and around us and you want to invite their sparkly positive vibes into your life, then what better way to show them they are welcome than to erect a door just for their purpose? Do it, you know you want to! Peace, love and Faery sparkles mjxoxo
