Fairy House Exhibit
at Highfield Hall Falmouth MA
Opening Reception on June 28th, 1:00 pm
Tessa is currently building a 5 foot tall fairy house she has titled “Fane of Thearsingri.” Her intentions are continually evolving but she has stated that “Thearsingri” her fairy, has a very bad habit of collecting odd and end things. Her house is a sort of fairy hoard of all Thearsingri’s muses. Tessa said Thearsingri is known to ride her bicycle around small patches of forest that barely reside between many residential neighborhoods nearby. Tessa claims to have seen Thearsingri sneaking around the outskirts of people’s yards collecting what odd and end things she finds.. always careful to not get too close. “She has really gotten out of hand with this habit,” Tessa says, “I don’t know where she thinks she’s gonna put all this stuff!”
This fairy house is sure to be a majestic hoot! Stay tuned for pics!
