Pop up fairy village in New York charms neighbourhood
A New York grandmother-granddaughter team have been building little fairy houses as a hobby for years, reported the GoodNewsNetwork last week. However, when COVID-19 hit they got extra busy creating little magical vignettes they could place outside for their local community to explore and enjoy.
Each tiny house is unique
After lunch the fairies can head over to ‘Flo’s Creek’ to sit under the gazebo and read or collect pink petunias.
‘Aqua’s Flip Flop Inn’, looks very inviting for a swim, boat ride, or just for relaxing in the sun and sand.
The Inn has a turquoise roof imbedded with shells, a rainbow door, and a one-inch tall sandcastle. A sparking boulder painted with a mandala pattern sits to the left of the door and a crystal covered rock to the right.
Each teeny-tiny house has a special feel about it: They’re certainly places any fairy would love to live. Hidden under bushes and burrowed at the bases of huge trees, surrounded by the smell of showy flowers and the gurgling of a waterfall, the settings couldn’t be more enchanting.
This fairy land has been put away for the upcoming winter for now, but you can still take the full guided tour through the video below.

While having full-time custody of grandchildren can have a negative effect on the health of older people, occasional helping can be beneficial for seniors, the researchers say. Learn more.
