Subject: Fairy Door Discovery

Date: Fri, February 20, 2009 12:07 pm

I live in Wayne Michigan. My husband and I bought our house last September. There is a spare room and there was nothing behind the door at that time. One day I saw a flicker of light from the spare room. My 9 year old niece Emily was over. I told her about it and she knew about fairy doors. I knew nothing of them until Emily filled me in. She wanted to see what may have caused the flicker. When she shut the door behind her there it was. A beautiful fairy door with the name Cherish.

She and Emily exchange letters and gifts when Emily comes to visit. She was very
excited to find the door. Thank you for this website so that I can share it with you.

P.S. I am attaching a picture of the fairy door and 2 of the "fairy room". I am also attaching a picture of a fairy that I happened to catch Cherish before she flew away.

Perhaps it was just crooks looking to cop some copper from Cooper. Or maybe it was fairies borrowing a home customized for them.

Either way, Cooper Van Bonn, 4, wishes he could get back his tiny fairy house that he and his father, Bill Van Bonn, built by the opening in the trunk of a catalpa tree in the family's front yard in south suburban Flossmoor.

"I miss my house. I helped my daddy build it. I painted it. It was the color of the grass," Cooper...away.

Subject: Omaha fairy door!

Dear Jonathan,

We were so excited when we found a fairy door in our new home in Omaha NE. We just moved back to Omaha from Ann Arbor and were sad to leave such a wonderful town. My son Brandon and I went around and found all the doors before we left so we would always remember the fairy magic. Then to find
that some had came with us, was so exciting. Now Brandon has his very own door and is on the look out for the fairies that live there.

Thank you for introducing us to the fairy magic.

Subject: Urban Fairies spotting at 130 S. First Street

Hi Jonathan,
My coworker pointed out a fairy door at the corner of S. First Street and Washington. The actual door in inside a window level with the sidewalk on Washington Street. The building's address is 130 S. First Street, Ann Arbor, Michigan. This is the first time we've noticed the door.

I checked your webpage and didn't notice this site on your list so I thought I'd let you know.




The Fairies in Brighton (Michigan)
have become so prolific that I have given them their
own pages.
