My very own fairy garden!

I finished it!! Thank you so much Judy ~ I just love it! My son Brad broke a slate tile that he had into small pieces so I could make a little walkway. . . I made a small arbor with rusty pieces from an old box springs and wove the small ivy all around it. The mirror is the pond! What fun . . . I'm sure if you contact Judy at The Spice Cupboard she would be happy to sell you a fairy garden kit!






Wishing you fairy dreams ~ xxoo, Dawn

Dawn, this is precious!
What fun you must have had putting it together.
I might just have to make one someday. I think I even have most of what you have in there in my magic closet.

Thanks for sharing.
Smiles,
Becky

I LOVE it! How precious. I can't wait for Sarah to get home tomorrow and see what you have done. Makes me want to make one for myself.

Come over and see my shadow box.

Dawn,
The next time you check my blog and see the shadow box I did of my mother, could you give me suggestions, if any come to you?

Thank you so much!

How enchanting, Dawn! Just beautiful!

Sue said...

Dawn,
The Cinnamon Stick is not too far from my home although I have never been there. Now I MUST get there!! I love your fairy garden. As soon as I have a free day to stop in, I will let you know! Isn't it strange how it takes someone in another state to bring this place to my attention??

Gardengirl said...

Dawn, I have to have a fairy garden now that I have seen yours. Did you use real soil or something that looks like soil? You did a beautiful job of making it look so natural and I bet the fairies are all excited about their new home too. It is so precious.

Relyn said...

This is exactly the kind of thing that would thrill my daughter's heart. I think I may have found a love gift for my little one. Yours turned out beautifully, by the way.

Brenda Kula said...

Oh, how sweet! I love it! They have workshops on this at Blue Moon Gardens in Edom, just outside of Tyler here in East Texas. I believe you can see them (and get further ideas!) at www.bluemoongardens.com. I want to make one soon!

Ohhhhh it's beautiful Dawn,

Absolutely adorable. I will have to show my daughter this when whe wakes up tomorrow. As you know I received the Fairyopolis book in the post this week.Funnily enough and after looking at it today we watched "The Fairytale - A True Story" film together. We both loved the gorgious fairy house that the two little girls made and left down by the stream for their fairyfriends, and she asked me if we could make a house this holiday. It would be lovley to make a garden to go around the house too.
As always it's such a pleasure to visit your blog - such a breath of fresh air. Thank you for your wonderful words and sharing creative treasures.
warmest best wishes
Suey

Dawn, what a beautiful idea. I think this is a very special way to have a mother/daughter time in the garden no matter how old! And mother/daughter time shopping for all of the ingredients! Don't forget mini teacups! ;-)

Sweet Fairy Garden, Dawn! I love all the detail.

Have a fabulous week!

Becky said...

Sweet Dawn, I just wanted to tell you I have nominated you for the Brilliant Weblog award. I know you have already been nominated, but I couldn't not mention you.

Smiles,

Miss Sandy said...

Dawn,
You are always up to the most fun stuff! Your little garden is adorable!

Sloane Lawson said...

Dear Miss Dawn,

I LOVE that Fairy garden. Why didn't we do that, I wonder? Do real fairies actually live in it? I have lots of pet faires that I bet would like to come live in your garden if you don't have any of your own. All my fairies have really weird, fairy-like names. One of them is named Blue Ice because she is pretty much blue, but an icy blue color.

I'm glad you liked my Comfort Island. I do think it will help Noah read more. Maybe you can read the Hobbit to him on Comfort Island. My Daddy just read it to me and Momma. We really liked it.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you have a really good week.

Just like you to "perfect" the fairy garden !! Every year we struggle to find those little tiny pebbles that are just the right size to make our walkways and you come up with the broken slate pieces...guess you know what we are going to use next year for our classes - I love the slate so much better! I visit your blog and learn something new everyday XO Judy
