Fairy Garden Part 2

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?

I am joining ~

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.

Susan and Bentley


  1. It is truly a work of art. I am completely smitten.

  2. I love the fairy gardens that I have been seeing others blogging about too. Yours is very sweet, such a good idea to use the barrel. I think I will make one too, it will be fun to look for little things that normally would make no sense by itself but with other things collected will tell a delightful story. Thanks for sharing it and giving us inspiration to get started on ours too.

    Have a good time this weekend getting your other property started, how exciting that will be. xo
