- Handmade whimsical Fairy doors
WoodenBLING is a small home based wood working shop, where everything is handmade.
Owner, operator Ronda Hiller started making childrens furniture for her home daycare. When parents of the children she cares for started purchasing her work, she realized she could make a little extra income and still enjoy her hobby. ” I was running out of space, but I loved making new pieces.” Then she found Etsy. It took off from there where she has sold over 1,000. pieces in under a year.
The Little Fairy doors are from a childhood memory of her grandmother:
When I was a little girl my Grandmother had one of these fixed to the bottom of a huge tree in the back of her garden. She would tell all of us and every kid in the neighborhood that it was a magic fairy door and only the fairies that lived in there could open the door. She said that if you put little gifts at the door the fairies would come out at night and sprinkle magic fairy dust on her flowers and that’s how her flowers grew so pretty. We would put pennies, candy and flowers at the door and then come back later and it would all be gone. We would get such a kick.
I forgot all about Grandma’s fairy door till I saw one at a gift shop while vacationing. It was a lot nicer than Grandma’s but not worth what they were asking. I thought I can make that. Three years later I did it. This is my version of a Fairy Door.
