This one for the Fairy house?????????

Right now to confuse everyone and put you in a quandry as i am!!
This is the house I got on ebay about 2 years ago, ( another £30 bargain!!!) which was a gothic style. I have stripped the interior of all the stuck down furniture and have to strip the walls and trim on the frontage, ( which is just a lift off panel)

I thought about painting this a paler colour and making this the fairy house. Putting lots of fairy plants in the little 'garden' it has to its right, and making it a fairy kitchen. The front panel lends itself well to making a fairy door. I could do all the walls in paperclay, and put large flowers around it as in some of the recent fairy houses I have seen on the blog that Debbie sent me a link to. .... ( by the way what do they use for those flowers, are they real just for effect, or do they use dried flowers do you think???)
So now I have to decide, is this to be the fairy house with just one room, my new bargain the witchy one, or vice versa?????? I had visualised the new one as being quite witchy until I saw the pictures people were posting when a 2 floor fairy house started coming into my head! Comments welcome on how I could do this house as I can never decide ANYTHING!!!

I think the house looks better suited to a fairy house. Just my opinion.

Such decisions!! ;o) You'll figure it out. Personally, I like this one for the Fairy House with the little garden.

I dunno, I have a difficult time envisioning things and they generally evolve as I work of them, BUT the roof reminds me of a witch's hat!! :) Hugs

I think this should be the witch and the earlier post the fairy.
I thought i was bad with all my things on the go... lol.
Can you open the roof up ore on this one? That would be nice if you could.

Oh my, decisions, decisions! This house would look great either way! I love the garden on the side. It could be a fairy garden or a witch's pumpkin patch. The other house does look like a witch's cottage though. Good luck, I'm sure whatever you decide will be great!

I'm all for seeing another fairy house being built......the possibilities are endless!! Love the idea of a fairy kitchen!!

Not sure as to what flowers your talking about, but I have seen some recently on another blog that had real sized silk flowers attached to it. I love the idea of it too and posted a blog this morning about it....I plan on using lots of berries, and ivy...and daisies....and what ever else I can think of :)

Kate the flowers that are used in that other blog are the large silk flowers. You should be able to get them at Hobby Craft. I like this house for a Witch and the other one for the Fairies..

Thanks everyone, still undecided, suppose Ill have to wait and see what it looks like when it arrives!!
Unfortunatly the roof is fixed, so it can only be one floor on this one :-(
Katie, must be the same blog I read with the gorgeous red flowers, are they silk, thats a great idea.
Whatever way we choose to go I will post pics of both, you know us, there will be a bit of one then abit of the other........maybe we should have other blogs to save everyone getting confused !!! I know I am already xxxx

Is it fixed to the floor Katie? If not then you could raise the whole thing. I see witchies.
