Whimsical playhouse built by former Disney artist

Former Disney artist Arthur Millican Jr., maker of "exciting fairy house manors" built this excellent storybook style playhouse from found materials. It reminds me of the "witch's house" on Carmelita street here in Los Angeles.

If the storybook style appeals to you, here's a book about it that I like: Storybook Style: America's Whimsical Homes of the Twenties.

  1. There’s no mention whether this delightfully askew house was built for Millican’s children, for a client – or for his own use – PS – I didn’t know fairies used benches. Maybe to rest on after long nights of strenuous fairy duties (?)

    1. That’s a ‘duster’s bench’ used by the little one’s craftsman to make the pixie stuff. Faeries like their dust, you know.

    2. If you follow the link for “exciting fairy house manors”, it actually takes you to the site for his store: http://www.whimsicalfairygarden.com/. I don’t know why the author didn’t call it out by name, but it’s called Sleepy Hollow, and it’s in the north Georgia mountains. I’ve been there, and there are maybe 15 of these. It’s pretty fantastic :)

      1. “there are maybe 15 of these”

        So it’s kind of like a big truck stop, except it’s for fairies. Your higher quality human truck stop usually has good coffee and restrooms. I wonder if it’s the same way at these delightfully askew fairy stops
