The Fairy Box

After much to-do and dallying I've finally finished "The Fairy Box". 

The exterior finishing touches were evading me for quite a long time... but I think I finally coaxed them out.

 The piece measures approximately 7.5 x 6.5 x 5.5 overall.

The insides include stacks of tiny books on a thread spool, various pots of glittery pixie dust, a basket of wands, bottles and vials of very nice things, and a fru-fru fairy frock on a clothespin mannequin.  

One of my favourite things is the little table inside. Unfortunately you can't make it out because it refused to be photographed. You'll have to take my word when I tell you it's made from old clothes pegs with chess knights (or horsey guys) for legs.

The Fairy Box is listed on etsy HERE.
