fairy garden time



Finally getting a chance to post the little fairy garden I did.  I like doing these miniature gardens.. they are fun and MANAGEABLE!  real gardens overwhelm me.  lol!
 I added the real birds nest that my friend Brenda gave me.  I think the branch should be up higher and maybe this weekend I ll find a different branch and redo it.   I also made the mushrooms on a whim while I was in the middle of planting the little garden!  lol.. I ran in the house, grabbed the sculptey and had the little shrooms in the oven in about 5 minutes!  then I didn't even wait for them to completely cool before I had them painted.. and because they were still warm, they dried really fast!  so I had them finished and popped into the garden in about half an hour from start to finish.    blaah blaah blaah..  do you really care??  lol!  
Sorry, sometimes I think I just go on and on about the stupidest stuff,  like this dragon fly that Ive had for years and years.  Isn't he cute?  He came off of an old fountain that I used to have.  I thought he'd be happy flirting with the fairy that lives in the garden!   
I still haven't finished planting.  I need to pick up a few more plants for the window boxes on the back of our house. But I did manage to get these Pansy's planted into this rusty old toy wheel barrel.   My friend Brenda has a big old tub of Pansy's that I just love.  And she has the cutest little painted Pansy sign stuck in the pot.  I was trying to sort of copy her.  but my pansy sign is just a piece of chalkboard.  Im going to paint a sign this weekend. maybe...    or.. maybe not... who knows!
So glad tomorrows Friday!   For a short week, its seems like a long week!  I had domestic violence training all day long for the last couple days and then I had to work late doing our parenting program tonight.. Just have to get through one more day!  Its supposed to be beautiful and warm this weekend.  I have a bunch of bear orders that I need to work on.  other then that, I really don't have any plans.. just hanging around!
Well I'm off now to do some blog hopping!  have a great weekend everyone!

Love the fairy garden, Vivian! Your shrooms turned out really cute. I need some giant ones for the Mad Tea Party coming up in July. : ) Hobby Lobby has some giant flowers that I'm thinking about getting, but I'm not sure yet. I don't know that I want to have to figure out where to store giant flowers.

Loving the fairy garden. They are such fun. I'm like you, big gardens overwhelm me. I still haven't gotten other thing planted. Either it is 90 degrees or raining. Nice and cool tonight so maybe there is hope for tomorrow.

I LOVE your little Fairy garden, Viv. That is what the girls and I are working on tomorrow night after school. LOVE your mushrooms-they are so cute. We have a little banner in the works for ours, too. Yours is DARLING!

Love how you write- it is like talking to a friend! xo Diana

Your fairy garden is adorable, all the sweet details- bunting, tire swing, just lovely! Have a wonderful weekend Viv!

You know I love your fairy garden. The bunting and toadstools are the perfect touch!! Nothing you say is ever blah, blah, blah. We'll all love hearing your creative genius conversations. If were up to me, I'd only have teeny tiny gardens. Chris has a zillion garden projects going on at the moment. Glad his school year is almost done so that he can take care of them all. Happy "almost" weekend!!

Cindy said...

I love your fairy garden! The little banner is so cute, as well as the mushrooms. Now I want to make some for my garden - it's a gnome garden (not fairy:). Have a great weekend!

I would so love one of these, while I was in Wisconsin we went to a HUGE plant nursery...they had tons of items for fairy gardens! It is too hot here now, but next spring...I am going for it!

Your wheelbarrow full of posies is so stinkin" cute!!!! to use a favorite word of one of my dearest friends in Blogland! :)

Lynn said...

Your fairy garden is adorable! I love the bunting and the bird nest. The wheelbarrow of flowers is too cute! We have planted flowers and mulched our yard the past two weekends. Well hubby plants and puts the mulch out and the fur kids and I watch! We have been going to Lowes and getting the clearance plants, knock out roses for 5.00 instead of 12. 98!! Got to love a good deal. Have a blessed week! Hugs,
Lynn
