The structure is foamcore. It was a kit for a decorative birdhouse that I found at the local thrift store. It is reinforced with Plaster of Paris (that I already had), rocks (from my driveway) and popsicle sticks and faux flowers (Dollar Tree)
the roof is birch bark from own front yard!
The ladder is made out of twigs and raffia. The table and curio were bought at Dollar Tree, and then paintyed and distressed by me.
Her bed is a wodden box from Dollar Tree that I painted. Her tiny pillow was actually found at the weekly auction! And her vanity is made out of a simply shell, and a wood cutting (a whole box of them found at auction also). The picture on the wall is a scrapbook embellishment with a magazine cut-out pasted in the center.

A couple of years ago, I decided that my fairy doll, that I'd had for a number of years, deserved a house. So I set out to make her a suitable home. But it couldn't be just a run-of-the-mill dollhouse, it had to look like a fairy had built it, so it's all made with things that I've found in nature, or in some cases, thrift stores, the auction and Dollar Tree.

I thought you might enjoy the pictures. :)
