Grace told me the fence is there so the fairies can lean over the fence and chat with each other. I suspect it may also be a divider to keep her sister's dirt off her side. ;)
We decided to really spruce up the area and make it homey. These are pictures from old calendars I had before the girls were born. I kept them specifically for the pictures not realizing they would one day decorate Fairytopia.
Kate's new garden... it's for very young fairies who like to move their stuff around a lot and play in the dirt. The snake plants really were getting much too large for her original pot so this is perfect. Grace gave Kate her hanging name b/c it's actually cookies for the fairies to eat. It only LOOKS like a Christmas ornament to keep trolls and other non-fairy creatures from eating it.
Grace's new spruced up garden. See how neat she keeps it? This garden is for the more mature fairy who enjoys a pretty quiet spot to rest at the end of the day.
The girls collected that cup of red berries today while at our home school co-op.
River rocks and water, complete with seashells of course.
This is actually an overhead view. Kate wanted the fairies to see how much she loves them even when they fly overhead. They can see this heart from their door.
And there you go... the newest fairy fabulousness. One thing I have come to understand in these years of fairy gardening is that fairies are not picky creatures. They accept nice and neat as well as dirty and messy. Gotta love it!!
Last week there was actually an article in the paper titled : Fairy gardens can spark creativity in kids, adults. My hubby cut it out and saved it to show me. :) Yep, I'd say fairy gardens have definitely sparked creativity for all of us here. Even Tony, who will not be caught dead playing in the fairy gardens, has made trinkets for the girls to give their fairies.
