A PLACE OF FAIRYTALES AND DANDELION DREAMS



“If I’m honest I have to tell you I still read fairy-tales and I like them best of all.”

― Audrey Hepburn




I have dreamed all of my life to escape to a world that may just exsist after all. A place far removed from Human Society to one of a Humane Society. Somewhere quiet, serene, still beautiful and untouched by the human hand where all of God's creatures great and small are your neighbours and friends and of course some humans mixed into the equation for casual sporadic conversation when one feels the urgency to refresh their earthly presence.

I created the above banner "Tansy " many moons ago for my Etsy shop but never used it for the simple fact I was too lazy to go back into Dreamweaver to remove the name. Now, many years later I think I will tackle the work on the weekend since hubby rekindled my desire to work on my graphics when he brought home a business card with a picture of me in Bermuda on our honeymoon that he had designed; it definitely wouldn't do unless I want business of a different sort and with liabilities attached of false advertising lol! : ) So now I'll have to rethink the banner and a business card that will more suit the kind of work I do : )


It's funny how thoughts of the day play in the dreams of the night; many wonderful musings came to me as I slept and this was one of them.


The Dandelion Door ~  A Fairy's Home in The Countryside





Like the Spider Fairy Door, The Dandelion Door was constructed in the same way….see last post

I love the idea of a peep hole so it too got one.




A beautiful piece of drift wood was used for the tree which was attached to a slate base with a metal screw. I then nailed the door to the tree , the nails being both ecstatic to the design and purposeful.



Now a word of warning …. I should have known this and I did but still made the mistake because I was overly anxious to see it finished and resulted in losing the work.

This was my first attempt at drawing, wood burning a dandelion on a piece of birch wood needless to say, I nailed it too close to the edge and it broke! I love the design I drew so i will recreate another one when I get more wood. 





So that's it for this week. 
Don't forget to visit everyone on Paint Party Friday and thanks again 
Eva and Kristin

Until later ,
Annabelle

How beautiful the piece is. It is a wonderful concept, I am sorry for the breakage, I hope it will be reused in some way. I think your banner is gorgeous too!

Pretty and different, to bad about the breaking in the end. Maybe it can be salvaged for something else later.
