One website cited this birdhouse as one of ridiculously expensive weird items on Etsy. Weird or not, it’s definitely work of art. It’s called The Fairy Treehouse and it was created by Debbie Schramer and her husband. The house is 5 feet tall and 4 feet wide. It has 14 rooms (all completely furnished with little chairs, beds, tables, etc., dishes, books, sculptures, paintings, brooms, shoes, etc., also made from nature). They have used everything in nature you can imagine…..driftwood, branches, roots, vines, twigs, leaves, moss, flowers, stones, shells, seaweed, kelp, leaf skeleton, wild grasses, herbs, pods… to create the house.
It took 6 months to make this house. It is 5 feet tall and 4 feet wide and features 14 rooms (all completely furnished with little chairs, beds, tables, etc., dishes, books, sculptures, paintings, brooms, shoes, etc., also made from nature). There is an observatory at the very top with telescopes, a sculpturing table and clay, pots to plant flowers, and little chairs. There are stairways that waunder all throughout the fairy treehouse; there are nearly hidden little rooms, balconies, windowboxes, sleeping hollows, garden rooms, little ladders leading to separate little overhanging rooms and just endless, amazing detail that captivates a person for hours. There is a library/music room with books and musical instruments, there is a little children’s play room and an art balcony.
Fairy Treehouse was exhibited at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, Maryland in 1995 for a year and was chosen the 4th favorite work of art out of the 400 artworks in the museum’s inagural exhibit.
If you’re interested you better be ready to fork over $100,000 USD, and if you do the couple would be happy to hand deliver the house – if you live in the United States!
