This was sitting on the top of a shelf. I almost broke my neck trying to get to it. LOL

It has a label on the bottom that says Midwest Canyon Falls.
The original price was $41.95...I paid $2.50!

It looks like some kind of seed pod opened up with a artificial frosted berry inside of it. It will have to be kept inside because it is to fragile to be left outside.
I was thrilled to find it, now I've got to figure out where I am going to have a large enough space to display it.

I am insanely jealous! First of all, I love most everything from Midwest of Cannon Falls and, second, I love English cottages. Good find!

It's pretty big. I'll measure it in a bit and let you know.

I finally got it measured. It is roughly 14 inches wide by 10 1/2 tall.
I've still got it sitting on my kitchen table and daring anyone to touch it.:>)

That is why I love shopping in thrift stores and going to yard sales.
You never know what kind of treasures you will find.:>)

This is my first time posting. I was enjoying all the pictures but just had to post when I read how you almost broke your neck when you saw the fairy house at the thrift store. You made me laugh out load thinking about my own experiences at Good Will when I spot a "find", get the rush and leave the store with a grin on my face. Love it!
