Creating a fairy garden

I have had fairies on the brain lately as it is getting closer and closer to the fairy
 party that I am having for my granddaughters.  I decided a couple days ago that I
wanted to make a fairy garden so I rounded up some plants, got up this morning
and my little fairy and I did just that.

She wanted to use a small rusty wagon that has been sitting around  for her new home.
We measured it and found that it was approx. 20 inches long x 10 inches wide and
she determined that it would be just right!

She also asked if she could use the wee rakes that are just perfect for her size and I
told her that would be okay so she got busy and went right to work and was done
in no time at all!

That much work tires a fairy out very fast so she decided she needed to take a break
and sit on her beautiful twig chair.

Just look at all the work she did!

A perfect home for a beautiful fairy don't you agree?

While she was getting her home ready she took a tumble more than once! She fell while
 adding the slate path and then again a couple times while planting her flowers.  She sure
 is a clumsy fairy! The first fall blunted off her nose and subsequent tumbles made her
 wings fall off, but her fairy godmother {moi} glued them back on and she is
*practically perfect*. No repairing her nose though. lol.

{truthfully her nose and wings were mishaps quite some time ago}

The best thing about her home is that when it rains her fairy godmother can pull her
home inside the garage so she doesn't drown!

Yep...I think my little fairy is very satisfied with her new home!
Happy Wednesday!!

{Please ignore all the shadows. It is very sunny here today and I did the best I could.
I have also rearranged the slate path a few times and I am still not totally happy with it
 so it may get another makeover...or two.  lol. }

Your fairy garden is so charming! I love it planted in the wagon. The little fairy did an excellent job tending her new garden.

Sandi, Emma is coming over for 3 days and we are planning a fairy garden also. She made one at her house once and Sam the dog tore it up. Bad dog. Love your little wagon :):) Too cute. Smiles, xo, Susie
