Assorted Faerie Stuff

First I wanted to give you a list of great faerie related books. These all link to Amazon, but we are also proponents of your local library. That is until you find out how great they are and have to buy them!

Felt Wee Folk This is a great instructional book about making little faery figures. It includes some great pictures of groups of faeries that I find very inspiring
Fairy Island This is probably my favorite faerie book. It is a little thin on story but the pictures are so incredible! They are incredibly detailed pictures of these houses that the author found on a faerie island.

Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book I just bought this one and am so excited! There are multiple Lady Cottington books and they are all brilliant and funny. My fiance described this book as similar to how people press flowers...but with faeries.
Fairie-ality This is a great book of fashion designs for faeries. They are made form natural materials and the book includes both design drawings and photographs of the finished products.
A Witch's Guide to Faery Folk This one is less of a picture inspiration and more of just text about faeries in general. It is a great book to lean about the different types of faeries and such, and who knows what will inspire you!

And here's a little bit of fun, a Faerie Name Generator! <3 Aline
Your fairy is called Gossamer Willowdancer
She is a caster of weird dreams.
She lives in spiderwebbed wonderlands and insect grottos.
She is only seen when the bees swarm and the crickets chirrup.
She wears tiny black spiders on her dresses. She has delicate green coloured wings like a cicada.

New Faerie House!

I'm blogging form the library! Be proud mom!
So I have some new pictures of another finished faerie house that I'm finally going to put up. It was inspired by sort of a Mongolian yurt mixed with Peruvian mountain houses, but its not exactly based on anything, just my strange imagination.
I liked the idea of these cultures using carpets on the walls as insulation, so I wanted the whole thing to be covered in carpets.
I bought a ton of carpets from ebay and used most of them, I had one left that I'm using in a faerie sewing room that's set in an embroidery hoop.
But more of that when that's finished...

I hope you like these and please comment and let me know favorite parts and such!
