Porch Pumpkin Fairies return!

It's nearly Halloween & They're back on the porch!
I brought home a pretty big and VERY heavy pumpkin for carving. Before I could whittle a face in it, there was a fairy cottage with a working chimney-stem and shuttered window-ears! Somewhat more elaborate than last year.

Back from the Fairy World

Whew! We made it back from the FaerieCon in Philadelphia.
Pretty crazy. We met some of the Big shots of the Faery World... writers and illustrators.
Brian & Wendy Froud, Ari Berk, Michael Hague, Charles Vess, Holly Black...

It'll take me a bit to regroup and put down the details.

The Autumn edition of Faerie Magazine came out.It includes a 3 page article about the urban fairies and fairy doors in Ann Arbor.

Also the November issue of a British magazine, The Doll's House Magazine, is out with a 2 page spread on the urban fairies and fairy doors.

Happier News

A while back I received an e-mail inquiry about the possibilities of urban fairies at the Google building in Ann Arbor. Today when I went to investigate... I did indeed find a fairy door to photograph.
