Hearth and Home

As you may be aware the spectrum of the Fae Folk is huge! Some are up in the air and its very hard to coax them back down to earth, You have the free spirited ones who seem to travel the length and breadth of the earth. finding new places!.
But what about the fairies who's magical place is actually their home?
I have yet to a make a house home ,but that hasn't stopped me from thinking about what I'd do once we find our own place. Deep down i feel i may have a hint of  hearth and home Fae inside me, for i enjoy nothing more than baking up something sweet in the kitchen or snuggling on the sofa with a good book, i know of one such couple who seem to be full Hearth and Home beings. Bryony of FaeNation and Bruce of  spookypop.com have lovingly restored there Yorkshire house into a beautiful home! Bryony recently decided to write up about the undertaking of making there home become alive again. their eye for detail is amazing! her first installment is that of her beautiful living room! What I'd give to achieve something like this.

Where it has been possible they've used local and reclaimed materials, such as an old railway sleeper for the mantle and York stone for the hearth, Don't you just love what she does to the fire place for MidWinter?.

She states that some items were Ebay finds such as the bookcase and Others were from local places such as the sofa that came from a firm who offer bespoke furniture, I think you achive so much more from a room when you hunt out something original and allow it to breath again, something i think doesn't happen if your home looks like its come off the pages of a catalogue. This room is beautiful in every way, looking at it, it looks like how it would have been many moons ago!. its warm, cosy and definitely somewhere to relax after a long day. a peaceful sanctuary from the outside world

I look forward to the next installment and you can aswell by popping over to her Live Journal.



  1. I'm glad you like it! You'll have to come visit one day :)
    We're definitely hearth & home types - not that I don't enjoy a good frolic in the woods or dance at the ball - I just couldn't be without a cozy nest to call my own.

  2. Oh most definitely, Balls and walks in the woods are a must :) always lovely to come back to home comforts!
    Would love to! :)
