Home and garden

 
Linda Haas, owner of Tree Star Hollow, stands in front of a collection of fairy garden houses. Haas uses largely natural materials, but likes to include other small objects she picks up at flea markets or estates sales. “I like to think of the fairies as scavengers bringing back things to their homes from time to time,” she said smiling.
