I decided to take some more pics of my fairy garden because a blogger
asked me where the garden was located. I set the garden up in an old whisky
barrel. The barrel sits on one side of my back porch opposite my herb garden.
I was inspired by this little garden fairy to construct a spot for her.
It was really fun shopping for plants and accessories. I used Irish moss
for the lawn and miniature phlox to resemble rose bushes. I built an arbor
and nestled it into some needle nose ivy. I gathered up some small smooth
stones to line the pathways and added some larger river rock around the
perimeter giving the fairies a place for sun bathing.
Bentley and I collected twigs from our walks around the neighborhood. It took
me several hours to frame up the cottage and cut each twig to fit for siding. I pulled
apart a pine cone to use for the shingles on the roof.
Constructing this fairy garden was the most fun I have had in a while.
Now that it is complete I keep thinking ~ what should I make next?

Bentley ~ let's pack up your little duffle bag. We are going up
to our property in the mountains this weekend to meet with the
excavation man. We will be building our full size cabin next.
