The fairy house tour around the grounds of the Florence Griswold Museum continues with photos of some of my favorite structures. Out of 33 very different styles, I found the naturalistic interpretations more believable as fairy dwellings. These tended to blend in with the landscape and mostly used materials found in nature. Please note: This fairy house exhibit is closed, with the next scheduled for 2014.

Wonderful little houses, just missing one of your fairies!
Thanks so much for sharing these! Enchanting. I could see your wee fairy folk on that little swing on the first one.
I love these and they are very inspiring!
All lovely and inspiring.
How very sad. I have made natural fairy houses for a long time and have never known about this place and I would have loved to seen them. I had made a tree stump as a storytelling chair and tried to give it the local library with fairy houses tucked inside and little animals living in it. They didn’t want it so my husband took it to the dump! It would have found a perfect home here. I feel so sad! Thanks for sharing.
It sounds like your story telling chair was very special and I’m sorry that you couldn’t find a place to keep it.
I love to see different ideas for a fare garden.
It’s intriguing. Looks like fun. During the downtime of season
