I almost can't stand it when I go out and look at what a few waterings of Miracle Grow can do for my little wheelbarrow Fairy Garden flowers!  I am SO dingy dang pleased! 

 Those little Johnny Jumpups and violets just make me smile.
I highly recommend a Fairy Garden.  Mine is not structured..and does grow a bit wild for some fans of Fairy Gardens..but that's the way I like it.  However, I admit to losing tiny objects such as a wheelbarrow and little tools. :(   You would think I could find them in such a small space..but..all that has turned up in a tiny pitch fork.  Ah well...
Remember other old garage sale wheelbarrow that I dumped the Roach infested soil into??
Well...guess what?? 
This is what it looks like now!  All ready with brand fresh soil and ready to be planted!
NOT only that, I painted that old faded yellow bench..
PH fixed a broken board on the back and it's as good as NEW I tell you!!
I've had it for...ages and ages and still like it. 


Here it is on the front lawn..I just had to show you so I took my camera and ran out there in the DARK (and I am afraid of the dark!) and used the flash to take this picture.....
JUST for  you!!  :)
(Sprinkler just went off..so that's water you see dripping.)
Do you love my red bench???  I KNEW that you would!!
I hope you are "spraypaint" inspired.  What an easy way to make changes...
Big hugs,
I may be a bit late but I am joining my friend Marty at:


  1. I LOVE your newly painted red bench! It looks great! I finally got a computer so am back here to bug you again! Love your new header!!! xo Diana

  2. Love spray painting to and your red bench looks very cheerful!

  3. Your red bench is wonderful Just right for the front of your garden. I can see more lovely flowers in the new wheel barrow. Keep pottering .

  4. Lost tools in the garden, Eh - well, that happens round here too, except I have garden elves and they keep hiding my tools. I just fixed the roof on their little cottage under my while lilac tree and even fixed up their swing.
    I love your red bench and did you get a new header - did you do that yourself? Its very nice.
    Have a wonderful day.

  5. the bench looks great! i have to paint a bistro set and picking a color is driving me crazy. i never have problems with colors but i just can't seem to make a decision with this one!i bet we are hotter than you. ugh...another heatwave!

  6. I love, love your new red bench!
    You and I think so much alike Mona, red is just it for me too.
    And your fairy garden...love, love, love!
    Hugs dear lady,

  7. Oh Mona, Love, love, love your red bench, it is so pretty. I can't wait to see your new Fairy garden too, I know it will be a fabulous as the other one. Thanks tons for joining Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

  8. I DO love your red bench:) Thanks for running out in the dark to snap that picture! Loving all of your pretty flowers:) Have a blessed week SWEET friend, HUGS!

  9. I am feeling a bit inspired what with red bench and red wheelbarrow fairy garden in process . . . amazing how a bit of paint can change the world from feeling drab and gloomy to a bit of fiesty and sparkly! Looking great Mona!

  10. Love, love, love that red bench!!

  11. Like everyone else I love your red bench. I've been wondering what to do with my old shabby bench and now am inspired to do the same thing. I'm still looking for a garage sale wheelbarrow for my fairy garden. Have fun admiring your flowers, they're beautiful. Hugs

  12. Love your ideas and input about the hall bathroom. An open shelf might be super fun. Hugs, Marty

  13. What did we ever do before the invention of spray paint? That's my paint method of choice. Your plants and wheelbarrow look great. I was looking at fairy garden ornaments, the other day. Did you ever see the movie "Fairy Tale, a True Story"?
    It's amazing that it actually happened. Thanks for stopping by.

  14. Love the bench Mona! I have two chairs that need some love and I'm thinking some spray paint is in order. Can't wait to see the new garden and I also love the newly painted wheelbarrow...so clever!

  15. Mona, I love the red bench. It looks so good in the front yard. The wheel barrel also looks great.
    I am always loosing my tools in the garden.
    Thanks for sharing this post.
    Have a super weekend.

  16. A truly wonderful post! I am so very proud of you and absolutely love every little detail...the fairy garden full of flowers, the red wheelbarrow and beautiful red bench...and your delightful manner of sharing it all with us. What an inspiration you are, Mona!

    My guess is that your little fairy heard your reprimand and has been trying to impress you with keeping her garden looking so gorgeous...hence the missing equipment?

    Huge hug, Des xx

  17. Hi Mona! I love your little fairy gardens and that you put them in the wheel barrow so you could move them. They look wonderful! Love your red bench too. I'm afraid of the dark too.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)
