In the July 2006 edition of MetroParent Magazine
(Greater Ann Arbor Edition)
is an article "Fairies alight Ann Arbor" by Patrick Dutcher.
This is one of my favorite pieces on the fairy doors to date!
Sunday, August 4, 2006
Erica Blake's article on the fairy doors ran in
The Toldeo Blade
SEPTEMBER issue, 2006
Katherine Lowrie wrote a piece for "Washtenaw County's Entertainment Source, Current"
(it's FREE)- [I got the link to the text now-10.30.06]
Michigan November/December issue of
AAALiving has a bit on "kid's stuff".
A few... um... inaccuracies included;
• The spelling of my name!!! *gasp!* *ack*
• I did not "paint a fairy door to entertain children..."
(sounds so 2 dimensional)

• The article also says: "You can't miss the 6-inch
white wooden door at Sweetwaters Café...",
when in fact it is LIKELY you will miss it.
Maybe he meant you "mustn't" miss it?
• Further more, the fairy doors are not ONLY on
Main Street.

Still... kinda fun to see it!
Two Magazines devoted to visiting travelers featured the urban fairies' doors as
unique destinations in Ann Arbor.

"Visitors Guide,
2007 Ann Arbor & Ypsilanti Area Visitors Guide"
Published by: Ann Arbor Area Convention & Visitor Bureau.
"... The doors are undoubtedly the most fanciful attraction in Ann Arbor to make national news."
AYEEEEE!! > it also says;
"... Doors can be opened to reveal 'fairy homes'. ..."
DON'T LISTEN! definately DON'T TRY!
Some (few), ideed, can be opened by CAREFUL humans, the rest require a fairy to open.

fun article.

The London Guardian
Has published their version in
their features section, G2,
(Friday June 23, 2006)
I am not sure what the obsession with the "hash Dash" or even Bash) is.
It has become a non-event over the years...
I suppose it just paints a quirkier picture of
Ann Arbor (Michigan).
