feeling a little obsessed!

 I really dont like to garden much.. dont get me wrong.  I like to plant flowers in window boxes and pots..
 But I dont like to play with the dirt on the ground... its not fun for me.  I dont like bugs and worms...
 I do a little of it just because I like flowers.. Its not so bad getting things planted... its the upkeep afterwords..  but container gardening is easy! 
 And now that I've discovered fairy gardens... Im thinking that I have to have one!  and this will be more like creating something fun then gardening!  
so maybe this weekend I'll find myself at a garden supply store looking for the perfect things to put in my fairy garden!!  
heehee!  I'm excited!
sorry, again.. I can not give credit where credits due as these pics all came off of pinterest.  Except the first pic, is from "my artful life" on flickr.  if anyone knows where any of these originate from please let me know and I will gladly post it.
have a great day girls!

After the first Lord of the Rings movie, I turned all my flower beds into "Hobbit Gardens." One had a Bilbo's tea party theme. One had a miniature picket fence with mini corn and sunflowers. One was called "shortcut to mushrooms". I had a lot of fun playing with them. I'm thinking a fairy garden would be super manageable and fun right now! =D

Oh my gosh, I could have written this post. (I think we have more in common that just the white/pink hair) I made my first fairy garden....haven't posted it yet. I
had the wonderful house for two years......I didn't want to put it outside. But I have. I will let you know when I post it. I am thinking of making more. You can get alot of $ invested but you, like me, probably have lots on hand that can be used.
I also don't like to garden. Everything dies or gets eaten by the bunnies and the deer. I plant impatients and spray for the deer. But these fairy gardens are my new obsession as well. Love the photos.

I am so wanting a fairy garden too! They are just too cute!

You will have a lot of fun creating a fairy garden! There are so many cute things to buy for them. Good luck and happy gardening.

Look how cute! That's something I could get into. I don't have a green thumb in any sense of the word so this would do just fine! Adorable.

Saw your pink hair photo on a comment you made and had to follow the link here - now I am following your blog too. Charming and fun and the fairy garden idea is amazing.

Oh my goodness...these are out of control, CUTE!!!!! My favorite is the one in the wagon. They all remind me of Alice in Wonderland for some reason (after she drank the "shrinking" liquid). : )
Thanks for stopping by today, Vivian.

Have fune creating your fairy garden this weekend Viv! I totally agree, container gardening is much more do-able for me! lol
I have some really cute pics of fairy gardens that I took at the MN State Fair last year. I'll post them soon, so look for them!

The garden in the wagon is absolutely fabulous! I love it!

I like the little furniture adding dimension! And I can just imagine a fairy tea party!

Thanks for the smile! This was such a neat post!

I'm SO obsessed about these fairy gardens too and have been meaning to put one together forever! We have a great garden center here that has lots of stuff to put in these but it's so expensive that by the time I put together a mini garden it would cost as much as a big one! See you Saturday!! xo nat
