~SO...SMILE, SMILE, SMILE....

 :)  Well..my little Fairy Garden is just about finished.
The greenery is in for the most part..but now that I have gotten this far, I think this is always going to be.... 
Would you just LOOK at my cute gloves???  :( 
...a work in progress.  I tried to keep things neat and clean..but..you can see by the ring of dirt where the little wheelbarrow was. 
Sooo...
These were the plants I chose.  Not really being the kind of person to sit down and study books on the subject...I probably made some errors..I just bought the smallest things I could find.  Of course I was in a HUGE rush as PH was standing by with my "gift hat" in his hand and my handbag over his shoulder as I picked among the plants.. (bless his heart!)  Is he GOOD or what??!!  :)
I chose Cherry blossom ..(the pink plant)otherwise known as Calibrachoa hybrid,  Calibrachoa Deep Yellow, Crystal Clear Alyssum and Easter Basket Alyssum, and Calibrachoa Double Lemon.  There is also a moss and another plant that I lost the tags on..somehow!  PAR!!  :)

The door clears the stone  perfectly.  Next the small stones will form the path. 


I used Baby Tears as a base.  I poked it in every corner.  I am waiting for the little stones that make the path..and thanks to Joyce@ October Farm.   She sent me a link to a place where I can get a paint to do the windows of the little Fairy cottage so they will glow at night!  Yes!  And..perhaps a touch to the stones that lead to the little front door. 
Can you see the tiny froggy pond there in the grass.  Perhaps I will cut it in deeper.
I already had the little clay pots.  I left one half turned over..(a little kitty will be sleeping in it as soon as he arrives! :)   


This is the back side of the little house.. I fixed the sod here with a better piece....:)  I was getting tired and my back was killing me from leaning over...

I really need to move the little pond.....somewhere... hmmm..

  This wheelbarrow is HEAVY! :)
But...
IT'S DONE!!

I finished another project..(for the most part.)  The tiny benches, the little fairies.. the kitty..but that's it.   The fairies  will be placed completely through out...not all clumped near the front of the house.
 So...there you have it.
Now if I can just keep it alive.  That will be the REAL accomplishment. 

Mine is not so great when I look at some with little houses all done by hand..so if you've done that...shhhhhhh.. I don' wanna know.  Ok??  :):)

Luv'n hugs,
Mona
Say...wouldn't a water feature ...Never mind..

  7. Thanks for sharing your lovely "fairy garden". My DH pulled out a heavy urn we had in the garage and wanted to do something with it. I suggested a fairy garden and he just looked at me. LOL He hat not heard of that one. That's what we will be doing today after church. I love yours.

  8. Mona, your fairy garden is so sweet! I have a little fairy 'area' in my garden, 'the fairies' leave a packet of Haribo sweeties for my Granddaughter when she comes for the day every Friday, some times it is a bit of a rush for them to leave them!You have given me many more ideas how to improve on my little fairy patch! Lots of love xxx

  9. Mona, Mona, Mona! I LOVE it! I am doing one this next week with my granddaughters. Yours is SOOOO cute! I just love it. I am anxious to figure out what kinds of plants to use, too. I should probably try and figure that out before we start! xo Diana

  10. Wow! Great job Mona! I love it. I think the kiddos will love it too. This is such a fun idea. I think a water feature is something that would great right near the garden so the fairies could listen to the soothing sound...wait, I'm getting out of control now! Thanks for the smile today!

  13. I love it. You have beautiful big plants in yours. I don't trust that mine would stay alive.
    I asked my husband where our wheelbarrow went....he threw it away. Love the house you used. They are so much fun aren't they.

  15. Oh, your fairy garden is magical! I always wanted to make one and put a small colorful globe in it to catch the sunlight! Can we shrink down and have a tea party on the lawn?
