Thursday Doors – The Elf Houses of Iceland

In a land of fire and ice, a wild and magical place, where the fog-shrouded lava fields offer a spooky landscape it is possible that anything out of the ordinary is possible and stories abound about the “hidden folk”.

These are their houses…

  1. A few years ago, somebody made a fairy door just like the ones above, on the base of a tree trunk just off the main road to Southwell. It was amazing how many people came to see it, how many offerings were left and clearly, even a bogus fairy house was filling a lot of gaps in people’s lives.


  2. I’m friends with a couple of Icelanders and have a couple more as acquaintances and I tthink it’s fair to say they are wonderful people, but they’re all mad as a box of frogs!


  3. This is a coincidence because I’ve been working on adding a little door in the tree for my Owl and Mouse series!
    Don’t tell anyone but I still believe in fairies! 🤫


  4. A nice touch cleverly done


  5. One of my happiest memories is going on a Leprechaun hunt in the mountains surrounding Carlingford, Co. Louth in Ireland. It lasted all day and was the most fun you could legally have on a Sunday in Ireland in those days. No leprechauns found, no pot of gold, but the spirits were lively enough in Larkin’s pub at the end of the day. I think the singing, the fiddle-playing, and the smell or porter, were what persuaded the wee folk to stay well away!


  6. These little houses are too cute, Andrew! Am puzzled how you were able to go to Iceland – has the travel ban in Europe lifted?


  7. He he – I see me! I will always bring a bottle.


  8. Very clever, Andrew. I’m not there, but I’d gladly bring a bottle if I might join, as I see quite a few people I know are in attendance.



  9. Well if this post doesn’t make you smile you may need to check your pulse.
    Good one Andrew 🙂


  10. This is so well done. 🧡


  11. I believe, Andrew! And I am excited to be part of your elf party! Someday, hopefully, we will be able to share a real pint together. –Curt


  12. Thanks for the invite . . . I’ll bring some watercress.
