Hobbiton Fairy Door

It is said that the only difference between Hobbiton fairies and Hobbits is the size of their feet. But I have found that these fairies have voracious appetites. Leaving a plate of food unattended is an invitation to eat for a Hobbit; however, food is never safe from a Hobbiton fairy until it has been swallowed. Door Artist: Steve R. Veilleux

Tinkerbell Door

My ancestors’ Irish storytelling tradition is rooted in the belief in fairies and the supernatural. “Although invisible to men, particularly during the day, they hear and see all that takes place among mortals in which they have any special concern. Fairies are always mentioned with respect and reserve.” - Rev. John O’Hanlon Door Artist: Donna Lange

It is a world of alluring starlets draped in satin and debonair leading men who grace the red carpet below glittering marquees and Hollywood premiere spot-lights. Against the technicolor backdrop are the classic motion pictures and film stars that live forever on the silver screen. This little fairy is ready for her closeup!

Zombie Fashions

A spell from beyond the grave has sent this Calavera to our Main Street in Putnam to watch over The First Fridays Festival. In his mouth lies a lock that should never be opened. However, if a skeleton key is found to fit and the keeper of the key gazes into the purpling depths of his eyes and whispers “zombies are coming,” an entire First Fridays Festival will be taken over with undead rotting corpses. Maybe its just a bunch of hocus pocus, but if the key fits… Door Artist: Jennifer Beckett
