A Fairy Garden

I’ve been excited to share with you the latest project T has been working on, and just recently finished, for a little 4 year old and her creative imagination.  The project was inspired by my mother-in-law who created the first oasis in her back garden to attract not only the mystical creatures, but the imaginations of her two granddaughters.

It was hit with both girls and an opportunity for T to put his inherited creativity to work.  And so the concepting and multiple visits to Lowe’s and Home Depot ensued.  Using existing materials such as terra cotta pots and PVC pipes, T fashioned a beautiful garden with a fancy water feature.

My mother-in-law is convinced we are conspiring to relocate some of the fairies, but in truth, it wouldn’t be the awesome garden it is without her handcrafted fairy furniture, stones, mirrors, plants, “pixie dust” and overall amazing idea.

D goes out every morning to see if the fairies visited overnight – the only evidence being pixie dust and rearranged furniture.  Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn’t, but it’s fun for everyone in this house to see what the morning will bring.

    Absolutely perfect! What are the ‘waterways’ covered with? Darned right you are trying to steal out CA fairies! Is it working? Just wonderful for D as she will always have sweet memories of her play house and fairy garden.
