Much to the delight of my young daughter, there seems to be an influx of fairy-related activities in Chelsea, MI this spring. The Garden Mill and Cranesbill Books co-hosted a "Create a Fairy House" workshop in March, and it was so popular that both sessions filled up extremely quickly, with requests continuing to come in long past the big day. We were lucky to have signed up early, and I was thrilled to see the beautiful fairy home my daughter created, with dried flowers, polished stones, and other lovely items from nature.
This weekend, Chelsea had two more fairy events. One was an encore of the Fairy House Workshop, this time held at the Chelsea Center for the Arts. I'll be eager to hear if this will be a regular offering at the CCA. The other was an adorable fairy tea party hosted by the Chelsea Library. Little girls attended the event in their finest dress-up attire to enjoy dainty snacks, a performance by the Youth Dance Theatre ballerinas, and then participated the pinkest parade I have ever seen!
The fairy doors in Ann Arbor are very well known among fairy enthusiasts, and have been reported on NPR, The Washington Post, and others. (Just Google "fairy door Ann Arbor" to find more). I wonder if any places in Chelsea will follow suit?
