~IT'S A WHEELBARROW WORLD...




...NOT a marshmellow world...that we live in. 
Yes, it is!
At least it is in my Fairy Garden...
Today the little stepping stones arrived..and construction of the pathway for my Fairies to walk began..

The little stone are flat and smooth.  Each one different.  Of course I will change them a few times before I'm happy with the way they look..but..you know how that is.  Tell me you do.  Ok?
I fuss.
Like the old lady I am! :)

Of course we need a watering can...and this one was perfection!  Really pours water in spite of it's tiny size.  So sweet!

The little pathway leads around the yard to the side of the Fairy dwelling..to..

...my little wheelbarrow!  I am delighted with the quality of these tiny tools.  I don't advertise on my blog usually, but if you would like to know where I found these things..I will be glad to email you.

In summer..tiny pots will rest in this tiny wheelbarrow..and moss and Fairy flowers.
In the Fall...apples and pumpkins, I imagine...
What do you imagine?  :)

Ahhh...here she is ...like me..taking a break.. :)  She was a gift from my daughter many, many years ago.  She and I spoke about a bit of Fairy paint to brighten her up...she said she was busy and sent me on my way... 
(Cheeky little thing!!)

My other little inhabitants have not yet arrived...and as with any dwelling..they must be approved before moving in!  Can you just imagine telling a Fairy that she does not qualify?? 
No...neither can I!

Love always,
Mona :)

This is not exactly "tabletop"..but I hope "wheelbarrow top" will suffice..
My thanks to Marty @ A Stroll Thu Life for always being such a nice Hostess!

I too would love to live in your barrow. Enjoy playing. Then you need to invite neighbours kids for a fairy tea party.

Good Morning Mona! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Hens & Chicks. I see you are having as much fun with your fairy garden. I saw some fairy garden accessories yesterday where I picked up my Hens & Chicks. So many fun things, arbors, fences, swings, tools, everything you can imagine. Yours is adorable! Can't wait to see it thru-out the year!
Have a Happy Day!
Hugs, Lisa

Awww, I was in love with the wheelbarrow before I even saw the tiny tools inside it. And that fairy ~ no wonder her surroundings are so special. She is definitely a special fairy to you. (Following these fairy updates is so much fun.)

Bernadine said...

This is adorable! It just gets better and better. I can't wait to see your additions. It looks complete as it is already so I imagine, when it's all done, it will be incredible! Very charming. Could you email me with the name of the store you purchased the garden tools?

SaucyKod said...

Too sweet n lovely. I think I might holiday here - what time is tea served? I love the wheelbarrrel and there is a buzz amongst "Fairyland", as to who gets to live here. I hear they are going to draw the name real soon :)

Mona, what fun the fairies will have frolicking around in your little garden. It is so sweet - what fairy would not want to live there??

Chari at Happy To Design said...

Hi Mona...

Ohhh my goodness...your Fairy Garden is the most precious thing that I've ever seen! TRULY!!! What fun you must be having...planning and planting! Girl, the little watering can...and the wheelbarrow with the garden tools...are sooo darn cute!!! I love it! You know...I love that you created your Fairy Garden in your big wheelbarrow. That is the neatest and cutest idea ever! Hmmm...now I'm wondering if my honey would miss his wheelbarrow if I were to do something like this? wink!

Dearest lady, I just read the sweet note that you left for me. Thank you sooo much for coming by and your note just made my day! It's been a tough month at my place with all the dental surgery/work that I have been having done. It seems that everything that could have gone wrong...did. Eeeks! I am feeling much better now...guess I'm going to live after all! Hehe! Girl, I felt so bad that I didn't even sit down at the computer for several weeks. Hopefully I can get caught up. Sooo happy to hear from you, dear friend! Have a wonderfully sweet week...

Love ya,
Chari

NanaDiana said...

Mona- That is so cute! I am waiting for the girls to get here this weekend and we will be planting a fairy garden in an old wheelbarrow, too. I hope it is half as cute as yours! xo Diana

Jann Olson said...

Hi Mona, I love your fairy garden! I just recently built one in my old wheelbarrow too. I felt like a kid again and it was so fun! so much so that I am going to make one more in a metal container I have. I have a linky party and I would love if you would share this with Share Your Cup Thursday.
Hugs,
Jann
