Want a Peek at My Fairy Garden?




I have waited all summer to get this Fairy Garden to come to life..First, I waited for the tree stump to get transformed into the Fairy House. It still isn't painted but that will come eventually.  And I am waiting for the window frames to get made and nailed on. Gotta have windows, right?   I waited to plant/make the garden until after the roof was made and installed as I was afraid the garden would get stepped on and messed up. And then it was soooo hot, that I knew it would be useless to plant or transplant the foliage, we have finally had some cooler weather...So last week a friend came over and "we" planted, designed and fussed around and the fairy garden came to a reality!! Yeah, I'm so happy!! I have been collecting little things for several months and have been gifted with a few of the items too. Once you start thinking about something like this, a person is always on the lookout for "stuff" to go in the garden. I finished it off with coco bean hull mulch, oh yummy, that smelled like chocolate for the first several days and then I put the rocks around the border. I had a few rocks but had to beg a few from a friend and she was gracious enough to let me have some of hers.  Aren't friends the greatest? I still have a few more things that I want to do but there is always next year, I hope. Sew until next time, I hope the fairies are dancing in our gardens and I hope everyone has a Stitches kind of day...

Notice the 3 gazing balls,birdhouse, birdbath and the big ceramic mushroom

Oh! This is so awesome! I have been contemplating a fairy garden for a little over a year now. I have been thinking about it and haven't quite figured out how I'd do it yet. So, I LOVE seeing what you're doing! Did you build the house yourself? Did you plant "fairy" plants? I've seen in the plant store some very smallish plants they use for this.

I just love your garden--especially the fairy house from the stump. Ingenious! XOXO

I love your little fairy house! I must find a way to have a Scottish Fairy House in my backyard....

Stitches said...

Yes, Meggie, if you have a 'hankerin' for a fairy house, you must find room for one..they are a lot of fun to make...so start collecting stuff now!!!

Great looking garden. My husband helped me put my Gnome garden in. And of course it is always a work in progress. Love your ideas. Don't know if you can see mine on FB or not.

Love your fairy garden. I put together a Gnome garden with the help of my husband. I think they are always a work in progress because you can change things around by the seasons. Love it and they are so much fun. Thanks for sharing.
