If you need a reason to believe that magic still exists in this world, pay a visit to Ann Arbor in the U.S. state of Michigan – where tiny fairy doors have been mysteriously appearing in the area. “Certified fairyologist” Jonathan B. Wright said he first spotted a “fairy door” in his house in the early 90s. Instead of completely freaking out at the thought of tiny creatures moving into his home, he began actively pursuing these mysterious appearances.

Since then, the doors have been popping up in public places within the city such as outside homes, cafes, art galleries and furniture stores.

Locals and visitors have been super receptive of the idea and often leave little gifts for these urban fairies such as pennies, food, miniature stuff, like socks. How freakin’ adorable is that?

It is still sort of a mystery as to who actually builds these cute AF doors, but that’s part of the mystic touch. And who are we to question (or squash) the possible existence of magic, anyway!
