    I picked up this house at a yard sale on Friday. Found out it was a special fairy house.

    This would seem to be a very special fairy house, inhabited by surfer fairies. They are all very blond and tanned by the sunshine. They flit about dreaming of the perfect wave. They wish they all could be California girls. They are extremely fond of the Beach Boys and their favorite song is "Surfer Girl." When they speak, which is often tiny bubbles of nothing stream from their mouths and float away on the breeze. For them, it is an endless summer filled with surfin' safaris. As these little creatures go, they will never amount to much but they'll have fun, fun, fun, as they roar off in their little deuce coupe.

    Kinda dry there for a surfer house, isn't it DR? But Frank will be moving in soon. Does it need renovations before he arrives?

    I think it is a cute fairy house, but I have never seen a surfer fairy. All we have is swamp fairies here.

    Nice find. Are you sure the bubbles aren't IN their heads? 8)

    Now that's a swish pad. When can I move in? I can't surf but I can learn :)

    Look forward to your pics Melissa. Let us know if you need help posting pics.

    Jan, you just have to look at Arizona as an extra wide beach. Frank, you can move in anytime but be aware, you will be dealing with air-head types. I have not looked into the house, so I can't comment on decor.A surfing gnome would be cool.

    I would think that Frank would delight in airhead types.

    I love it! All it needs is a little pond to sit beside, with a little boat tied to the dock-let. :-D

    We haven't uncovered the pond tub or filled it with water. I'm sure it will get cold again. But maybe it will sit by the pond. The pond tub will look like an ocean to the fairies. Dooley
