Sorry, this item has sold.

This diorama is carefully hand made with minute attention to detail. It is unique.
The inspiration for its creation is from a simple tale of goodness:

Deep in the woods lives a very special fairy who is highly regarded for her healing skills. She is an apothecary fairy, but all call her the Good Fairy.

She makes all her cordials and remedies from herbs and flowers in the woods and adds a little magic. She studies hard to learn more about the wonders of nature so she can help any injured creature - even bandaging a toe of a toad if needed.

Sometimes a fairy or butterfly may snag their wing on a blackberry thorn, but the Good Fairy always keeps an array of spare wings and magic glue ready for just such an occasion.

During the cold winter months many a woodland creature, magical or otherwise, pops in to warm their toes by her hearth,
to enjoy a little gossip and a cup of rose tea and savour a slice of fairy cake with her. And if they have a sniffly cold she will offer them a small spoonful of stardust elixir which makes them feel better immediately.

And so the scene is set for your story to continue as you create it ....
