fairy garden

A friend assembled a fairy garden kit for my younger son as a holiday gift.  We've been waiting for a break in the cold, rainy days to create our fairy haven -- so yesterday, when the sun broke through the clouds, we pulled out our gardening gloves and seized the moment.

The kit our friend gave us included three small wooden houses, a fairy-sized bucket & gardening tools, tiny pots & pans, little striped flags to create a festive bunting, many sorts of seashells for decorative paving stones, and of course, the essential jar of fairy glitter.  My son was overjoyed with this project, and since the garden's completion, has been checking frequently for signs that the fairies have accepted his invitation to take up residence.  Thank you dear E. for this marvelous gift.

Spring is almost here...


  1. Oooh you have daffies already too - please package up the rain, clouds and cold. You know the address we have had baking temperatures for weeks now and little rain. I am sure the fairies are packing their bags and ready to move in. maybe the houses need a lick of paint and the roof pine cone shingles applied. Or maybe Lev needs to send an invitation to the woods behind informing the fairies there is a new abode in his garden...any footprints in the houses? warm sunny wishes to you all. Roll on winter.

  2. What a fun gift. Love the new banner.
