Happy Halloween

It's the end of October and no frost as of yet (but surely soon to come). This is a great time of year to go for Autumn Walks and on my recent walk, what did I discover, but a little fairy village. 

These fairy houses are located along a public walk in Northern Ireland called the Newtownabbey Way and there is a whole community of little handmade doors adjoining a community of trees - lots of fun to see!

Wonder if fairies go trick-or-treating!?!
Happy Halloween!

  1. A cute idea, Is it the work of one person or can anyone join in?

    1. Hi Sue, these little fairy doors were commissioned by the local Council office, and are available for the public to discover and enjoy. I think one artist made them and installed them. They are a nice addition to a lovely, scenic walking path.

  2. How much fun?! Someone went to a lot of trouble to make those little doors. Happy Halloween.

  3. Such fun to discover all these lovely different fairy doors along a public walk.

  4. How delightful! I keep meaning to make myself a fairy garden, but it hasn't happened yet. Maybe someday I'll get started!
