Do You Believe In Fairies?

the kind that live near the bottom of the garden,

back in 1993 when Jonathan Wright was renovating their 100-year-old family home, he decided to amuse his kids installed a small door into a tiny room with an equally tiny staircase and railing leading up to a second door,

 his kids were delighted,

moving on to 2005, he installed the first fairy door in public, on the exterior of a coffee shop, since then, about a dozen more doors have shown up around Ann Arbor,

 much to the amusement of locals, tourists,

and fairy hunters who would leave fairy-sized gifts for the fairies, candies, socks, tiny felt hats, letters and pennies,

now fairy doors are popping up elsewhere, such as in San Francisco and New York City, in Atlanta City, it has spawned a new project, Tiny Doors ATL, it’s director and principal artist Karen Anderson, who’s from Ann Arbor herself,

if you go looking for the fairies in Ann Arbor here is a map of where the doors are, and remember the golden rule above, happy fairy hunting!
