Curb side pickup...

Chris came home with this in the back of the van.
It was marked as "free" and sitting on the side of the road near our neighborhood.
It's getting a makeover and will take up residence in our toadstool garden behind the tree house. 

 He's using leftover tree house supplies so that it will match the tree house.

I've been told to stay away from the garage because it's a surprise, but I couldn't help sneak a few pictures of my carpenters in action.



 A stone fireplace, miniature window boxes and lighting are on the construction checklist.

It's larger than a fairy-sized house, but Josie and I were discussing that it could be the perfect size for our clever gnomes.  Stay tuned for the big reveal.

Such an adorable idea!! I have a niece who is totally into fairies and fairy houses. She would so love your backyard! I'll need to send her a photo once you've got the gnome house put into the mix.
