Fairy Doors, Fairy Kitchens?

We have a fairy garden in our backyard...
My family's annual trip to Michigan is coming up, and this is the year that I'd like to see the urban fairy operation, or U.F.O.  Since our front tree was the site of a fairy door appearance and disappearance, I have been interested in fairies and their doors.  We still have a fairy garden in the backyard, but the occupants have not kept it up and it is becoming overgrown and

I have taken a risk and already acquired
the cabinetry and appliances.  Will the fairies oblige?
