HGTV: Fairy House Edition…
I’ve been running by this fairy house every week, since about June (?). It started as just an unadorned piece of cardboard, with a couple grey rocks nearby. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m not sure if it’s one person’s project and they keep adding more to it, or if people just run by and drop of brightly painted rocks, or what. (And it definitely must have been replaced at some point, because it’s rained a LOT this summer. Either that, or it’s fairy magic.) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
At any rate, it’s been a consistent bright spot on my route this summer—even when it was plain and boring and didn’t have all this decoupage. And lord knows, we need all the bright spots we can get these days.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you, fairy house creator, for creating something cool for strangers.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you, whoever took the time to paint these rocks and place them so intentionally. This house’s curb appeal is on point.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you, trees, for making weird knotty holes that look like the female reproductive system.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you, fairies. Hope you’re safe.

Want to learn how to craft emails that inspire action and engagement WITHOUT the “tried and true” (cough: patriarchal) norms we’ve all been taught?
I’m doing it, and I can show you how to do it, too.
(But sometimes, I also like to write about the books I’m reading, or the creative process, or the entrepreneurial experience, or why I hate Steve Jobs, or how I met my BFF. I’ll send you emails like that, too.)
*Just kidding. It’s only an email list.
Books. Cats. Rants. Drawrings.
(and every couple months or so, an unexplained absence 🤷🏻)
