The still-vacant relocated fairies’ house has become a topic of speculation and delight in our neighborhood. My neighbor alerted me that the fairies had received mail. As caretaker, I brought it in for them. Above is a note from 5-year-old Ava, with a drawing of a fairy.
This is from her sister Aria, aged 3. Somewhat more abstract and, I believe, collaborative.
So I made a proper mailbox.
Had a fairy named Poppy write thank you scrolls in sparkly silver ink tied up with blue silk ribbon.
And installed it streetside. This should be fun :)

How enchanting, these girls will be over the moon with the fairies response!
They are! We’ve already received thank you scrolls, a feather and some tiny flowers :)
Oh my! My little (of the same age) would loose her mind if a fairy sent her mail. Well done! You have now filled at least 6 months of chatter with their fairy experience!
Thanks, Kat! Thing is, it seems to be as much fun for the adults as it is for the kids :)
How sweet! It’s nice to have a little project like this one receive attention from the neighborhood children. :D
It’s not just the children, Elizabeth. One man stopped his car to speak with us, all smiles. Said he was a building contractor and often made “special” little places as surprises for his clients. He was glad to see he was not the only one who saw fairies :)
What a wonderful idea! Those girls are going to flip out! My 11 year old would too! So sweet of you!
Thanks, Nora! It is fun for all of us. A fairy correspondence with an 11-year-old would be very interesting!
What a lovely, thoughtful thing to do. :D
Thanks, BW. This is fun for everyone :D
So much fun, Keli! Now you want to get to work on a wee, wee stone cottage :)
Very cute, I’m sure it’s the talk of the neighborhood.
Every neighborhood needs some shared magic, right?
