Faerie Houses

We all have a bit of Faerie magic tucked away in our homes. Spare buttons, single earrings too lovely to let go, dice and game pieces, cancelled stamps, gears from a broken watch – all sorts of little things that make our hearts sing. Just think how your goodies can now be showcased in the style of our personal Faeries – Victorian, bird lover, miniature art gallery, even steampunk. You are invited to gather up your treasures and join a free Faerie House making program offered by the Recreation Committee at 2 pm on Saturday, March 16th at the Congregational Church. Supplies and additional trinkets will be provided while you let your imagination dance with the Faeries!
**This a Gilsum Recreational Committee Sponsored Activity**
