fairy garden

I spent some wonderful time at one of my favorite places today.  It is Enchanted Gardens and it is not a nursery, it is an experience!  I picked up a few new items and tiny plants for my fairy garden.  Spring is here and the poor fairies were despairing that I had forgotten about them.  I purchased the boys at Target last year.  I found the girl at Hobby Lobby recently.  Most of the accessories are from Enchanted Gardens or Home Goods.




I just love my new little wooden ladder and bird house:




Here's today's before:

And here are two pictures of one of our very curious wire fox terriers, Parker, checking out the progress:





And here's my inspiration (Enchanted Gardens):

Someday...

Check out the ladders from the hanging baskets!

Update:
After writing this post, I created a fairy garden page.  Please use the tab on the top of the screen or click here if you would like to see more photos of the fairies at play.

  15. I purchases the twig ladder at Enchanted Gardens. It would be easy to make though. I took the picture of the long "rope" ladders hanging from the baskets at Enchanted Gardens. Again, it would be very easy to make with twine. In fact...you have got me thinking...
