My husband built a Brownie House a few months ago, hoping to attract a nice family of Brownies to help us fix the many broken items we have at our home.
Brownies are flightless fairy folk, similar to a hobgoblin, who love to fix things that are broken and improving them where possible. They do not like to be seen and will only work at night, traditionally in exchange for small gifts of food. Among food, they especially enjoy porridge and honey. Also, when ingredients are left out, they will bake something delicious, although they always attempt to make it into a dessert. I must have been a Brownie in a past life….
The Brownies that moved in didn’t seem to like the front walk and re-laid it more to their liking. I wanted their home to be a lovely retreat to enjoy during the day while they were resting from all the hard work they put into our broken items at night. I thought the flowers were a great touch. The Brownies must have agreed, as they added shiny glass gazing balls to their yard.
