Fairy House

This house is not far from where I live. I really like this house because of its look. It reminds me of the house in a fairy tales.

It does look like a house from a fairytale, it's quite big, nice windows, and it must be magical to live in the house like this.

Very interesting stories.

The most famous Norwegian paiter that drew trolls are Theodor Kittelsen.
This link is to some of his paintings that can be ordered as artprints. He has influenced the later generations on how they looked like.
Enjoy.

Hi Tanty!

I LOVE that house...in fact I WANT ONE! :-) Great shot!

Just curious, where in Indonesia are you from?

And if I've already asked you that, please forgive me...old age must be setting in and eating up all the good braincells I have left! LOL!

The window on the bottom right looks like a huge key hole. I guess that makes it easier for the evil step mother.

Love this house - and photo.

Thanks guys for the nice comments :)

Ame: Both of my parents are from Bukittinggi, a small beautiful town in West Sumatera. However, I spent my youth until I got married in Bandung, West Java.

Hi Tanty,

Thank you for your welcome home message.

This is a super house. The upper window at the right looks like an eye with eyelashes and the door (or maybe another window) in the center looks like a mouth. The house definitely looks like a person!

I like the keyhole also. It's a very interesting house Tanty. A little bit overwhelming too.
