If you’re a fan of the Fairy Houses that line the Birdsong Trail at Mendon Ponds Park, you’ll want to stop by the Mendon Public Library to admire the work of Betsy and Chris Marshall of Rush, NY.
A sampling of the Marshall’s Fairy House Creations is on view at the Mendon Public Library through January. Offerings include a scene inspired by Alice in Wonderland, another created for the Rabbit Room in Honeoye Falls, and several fanciful teacup creations.
The Marshalls crafted these items and the works at Mendon Ponds Park out of found nature offerings and various ephemera. They work out of their barn to create these whimsical designs in their spare time. Their work has been celebrated in libraries around Monroe County and in a museum in Connecticut.
A variety of Fairy House books are also on display and available for circulation.
