New Faerie Garden

Boy have I been mia, or what? It's been so busy around here, I just had to take a little break from posting. Now that it is officially a new month, I'd better get back into the swing of things! I'm still going to cheat a bit and do a short post. One of the many gardening projects I had on my list was making this faerie garden. I still have some tweaking to do, but it is mostly finished. The center piece of the garden is a Pink Fairy rose and I am quite excited to have found three tiny buds getting ready to bloom! The other plants I used were lemon thyme, mother of thyme, pink baby's breath, silver mound and sea pinks. The faerie house was at one time a bird house I picked up at the craft store and cut out a door opening. I decorated it using sparkly faerie colors. I hope you notice that I also have some wee faerie sheep, I am hoping to attract some spinning faeries to the little garden and I am on the lookout for a faerie sized spinning wheel!

I hope you have a delightful weekend! Blessings Friends!

  1. oooh, I adore this garden. Yes! You must have a fairy sized spinning wheel. I bought a metal pencil sharpener shaped as a traditional wheel. The size might be right but...I think your fairies need a wooden wheel. Welcome back!

  2. It's so good to see you posting again! I'm happy that you took the time you needed to 'refresh', and happier, still, that you're back here with us. I missed you!!
    This project is another cunning and adorable one, Melissa. You are so inventive and creative!! XXO-

  3. Oh wow, I actually made a little squeaky noise when I saw that. SO COOL! Is it weird that I'm kind of dying to walk up the path and plop down with the sheep? No? Good.

  5. Hee hee... this is so cool. I've had a faerie garden on my list for quite a bit now too... the boys will surely love to help. Although we'll probably end up with monster truck and lego loving faeries.

  9. Welcome back! This is so adorable, and yes, a wooden spinning wheel will be perfect there. You didn't mention the base of the garden, is it a bird bath?

    1. I didn't even think to mention the base, I've had it for about three years, it's a really great footed planter that I picked up at Lowes. It looks like cement but it's some kind of resin material. (I've got two of them and they make everything I plant look great!)

  10. I saw those wee sheep; a spinning wheel is definitely in order.

    And I'm glad to see you back as well. I was wondering where you had disappeared to - nice to see the faeries didn't get you. :)
