fairy garden at dusk 
In the fairy garden that is! home sick from work yesterday, You should be proud of me, I took not one, but two naps!! this is something I NEVER EVER do.. I took an hour or so snooze on the couch in the morning and another 45 minute snooszy on the porch swing in the afternoon!  I didnt feel good enough to do much of anything else. until last night, I felt a little stir crazy so when it got cooler outside I painted the tiny fairy garden table and chairs white (couldnt hardly see them when they were black!) and I hung a tire swing in the fairy's garden! Tony had a box of model parts in the barn and this little tire was just perfect!
This morning, though I do feel a tiny bit better, I still feel very sluggish and achey.. still coughing and I have a little headache. not sure if I'm going to work or not. its only a little after 6:00 am.. I'll decide by 8:00. I just hate to miss time now, because when the baby comes I'm sure Im going to miss a lot of time. 
the baby could come anytime now girls.. I need to get over this before he comes!
PLease keep praying.

I'm glad you stayed home and got a bit of rest. Sounds like you could use some more today. Your fairy garden is just darling. I really want to do something similar for the girls this summer.

I hope you feel better soon.
I love the fairy garden you created, such unique touches. In case you didn't known, there is an annual competition where you can link up your fairy garden and check out others - I have entered the past couple of years
Nice opportunity to share what you have done and look at other ideas.
Take care Viv.

So glad you got some rest! Maybe you can work a half day...your fairy garden is just terrific, I agree the furniture painted white is much easier to see than the black.

I have an old red wagon on the front porch that might do for a cute...and portable...fairy garden. I wouldn't curse mine with actual "living" plants as I have a black thumb these days. =D I sure do love yours!
