A Fairy Fun House for RealPuki
Ever since I acquired a FairyLand RealPuki Soso, I've been on the lookout for a suitable small house for his use. At first I considered bird houses that mimicked various architectural styles, but when the back lifted off (for cleaning) I was left with an open room that needed decorating and furnishing. I also looked at small dollhouses and single room boxes. Again, I would have to decorate--and in the case of an unfinished dollhouse glue on shingles and siding, install windows, and paint the exterior in addition to finishing the inside. Too much work. All the while I poured over mail order catalogs that featured fairy garden structures. Lots of inspiring stuff there, but doors and windows didn't open and there was no telling if the scale would work. In the meantime, Soso made do with some fairy garden furniture placed on a shelf in my bedroom.
