Susanne of 'Forget-Me-Not' posted about a friend of hers who created a fairy garden in her yard - and she also gave a link to a blogger who creates fairy gardens. When I saw those, I just knew that I had to try it. (My Vince and I are in the process of painting the back steps and cleaning up the patio, so please excuse all the mess.)
I started with a large pot that we had a tomato plant in last year. I cleaned up the dirt, patted it down and then searched around for a 'house'. Found this little clay pot, drew on a door and a window with a Sharpie marker, and added a large flat rock for a roof - (it kind of reminds me of 'The Flintstones) - and then added rocks for a walkway to the door. Another rock with a door drawn on is the dog house for the fairy's tiny best friend. 4 little trees were added and then blue glass gems were used to outline the gardens. I still need to find a little fairy figurine to complete the garden and I'm thinking maybe a few more small plants of some sort.
I think it's kind of cute and I had fun creating it - I'll definitely be making some more. Thanks Susanne! :)
