Every house needs a Fairy...............

I am a mum of three, I have two wonderful boys Morgan (12) and Jay (7)and a little lady Molly who is 4. The arrival of a mysterious fairy door in our sitting room has set my children's imagination wild.  Here are  some pictures of when the kid  first spotted the little Fairy door........... Childhood magic is truly priceless!
This is what the kids saw!
"A Fairy wind"
This is what we could see....

The Kids had been playing in the sitting room and left to chase our Dog Max around the kitchen. They were only gone for about two minutes when they sat back down to play with their toys they noticed a trail of glitter across the floor, leading them to a miniature fairy door on the wall. On the step of the door was the tiniest gold key I have ever seen.

The kids were amazed, they immediately raced around the house hoping to see the fairy who had put the door there.  They were convinced she was still somewhere in the house. Molly searched the house for another door, just in case there were two!

After many attemptsto try and open the door with the tiny key, we agreed that maybe the door could only be opened by a fairy. So we left the key back on the step for any visiting Fairies. We spent the rest of the day with our ears stuck to the wall trying to hear what was happening in the fairy world on the other side of our magic door.    

"Hello" Anyone there?
The following day our fairy left the kids a wax sealed miniature letter introducing herself and her fairy family,along with two golden chocolate kisses.

Most days the fairy leaves little fairy trinkets,  like tiny buttons, thimbles, shiny pennies and the occasional letter.  There's not a day that goes by where I don't see the kids trying to open the door.  I've even over heard them hatching a plan to catch the little fairy folk......... this door has helped us capture the magic of a Christmas morning everyday.
