Fairy Apothecary

Just a little project for fun. Something to spark a little magic... fairy magic of course.
A fairy apothecary to cure all that ails you.

Just a little wooden printers tray, painted white, covered with vintage papers, and distressed.

Then vials and bottles and more vials are labelled, filled and slipped into place. 

There's all sorts of fairy magic tucked into that tray.

Old buttons and snail shells are especially potent.

Old buttons hold some of the oldest and most sacred magic! 
One small button contains exactly the same amount to magic as a firefly.
Hard to believe, but it's true. 

Everyone knows that fairy tea can cure everything from exhaustion, to vexation and befuddlement.

Sweet dreams and fairy dust, dragon soot and gnome whiskers, those little shelves are well stocked.

  1. Enchanting!! And just plain fun!!! Love all the detail! 😊

  2. Oh My Stars! This is delightful! My house fairies would love this. I'll have to get those fairy collage sheet and make something similar for them. By the way, they think you are marvelous!

  3. I just love this. I have to get the bottle label sheet and make one for my house faeries!

  4. Absolutely magical Nichola!xx

  5. And here, not so long ago,you were so down. Now look at this loveliness!

  6. This is so marvelous. I am totally enchanted and wish I had one the same.

  7. I read Katie West's comment and thought the very same thing. You definitely got your mojo back. This is a fabulous project. Maybe fairy magic was needed to help you?

  8. I love this! And I'm so glad to know about the fairy tea. Been suffering from some serious befuddlement lately, as well as vexation - and exhaustion, come to think of it.

  9. Amazing shelf! Gets me in the mood to make an antidote or potion :)

  10. Incrível, pura magia e doces fantasias.

  11. Love! What a wonderful and enchanting little cupboard that is. And I didn't know that about buttons and fireflies. I have what's left of my grandmother's button collection and most are very old. I have a treasure trove of magic and didn't know it. I may even have a couple of snail shells 😉
