Bringing back magick, badger inspired.

Door
I have a project that I'm going to start working on. I want our grandkids to fall in love with forests and adventures and the magick of nature. So I want to create an atmosphere at The Hermitage for that possibility.

I am going to start by building some Faerie Doors to place around the property. How much fun would it be as a child to be taken to spend some time at the grandparent's home, and to wander about through their woods and discover little doorways with tiny tools here and there. Or a fairy ring (we have a natural one of chantrelle mushrooms in our front yard).

We aren't going to be the grandparents that buy them lots of things, but we can be the ones to tell them fantastic stories and give them adventures. We will be their very own Addams Family.

*off to start designing doors*

That is such a wonderful idea, and you definitely have the space to do it up right! Is your icon from a place that sells doors? I didn't see any in that style on the site you linked.

It was my favorite of all the ones I found on google image search

Andy glanced at the screen while I was reading my friends list and the icon caught his eye......he is sure he saw it online somewhere this week and now it's driving him crazy. Heh.

What a BRILLIANT idea!

Aaaa how much do I want one of the mini hobbit doors?? But no place to put it.

Why not put it indoors?

...Dang, that's a genius idea.

I think I might just do that; thank you. Indoor Mini-Hobbits :D

Is it okay if the adults have fun discovering the doors too?????

You betcher sweet bippy!

Your family is so awesome. I love this idea! I would have been blown away by finding a little door like that as a kid ... I was already so obsessed with gnomes.

That is so awesome. I used to love my aunt's house in the country, and would walk around her property imagining things like that. To actually have them around would be a kids dream!

Love it!
And I'm gonna have so much fun trying to spot them when I come for visits.

That looks like a seriously fun project - makes me wish I had grandkids.

Oh, *man.* If I had found something like that -- even now, but I mean when I was a kid -- I would have flipped out in the best possible way. I still swear I saw a hanging light in a 'room' in a leaf pile when I was a kid.
