The final cottage in my fairy garden collection reminds me of the house Miss Read comes to call home in the Fair Acre series of novels. It’s a small thatched-roof cottage tucked in the woods on the edge of the downs. Miss Read’s small house is left to left to her by her dear friend Dolly Clare and is much-beloved because of its origins. Mine is a perfectly-sized starter fairy home.
I’ve named it Fair Acre Cottage after the novels, which are among my most favorite books ever. These days, making a visit to the fairy garden brings me the relaxation and happiness that the novels bring.
