Fairy Furniture...

Today my mom and I took a 4 hour workshop
all about how to make fairy furniture.
It was being hosted and taught by the amazingly talented
Elaine at Bella Flora.
Not only is Elaine an amazing artist but she also owns the
shop and if you have never  been to Bella Flora you are missing
out on an oasis of magic. Really! It's like walking into another
world filled with magic, opulence and enchantment.
There were 4 women and two of the cutest 12 year old girls
taking the class.
We all gathered around a long table and Elaine walked us through
the tricks and tools of making fairy furniture. While we covered
ourselves in glue she kept bringing out bowls, baskets and bundles
of twigs, leaves and flowers to make our chairs and tables with.
Once they were built we got to dress them. More beautiful little
pieces of tidbits came out for us to use.
Time flew and the next thing we new it was 6pm.
I snapped a few photos for you to see. I have to say I am happy
with my furniture and I think the fairies will be to.

Fairy furniture is more fun with a little champagne.
