Making a Fairy Garden

I am sure I have mentioned this before ,
but winter  is sticking around the Trailerhood
Since I can only dream about getting in my OUTDOOR garden,
I decided to make an INDOOR garden.
More specifically a Fairy Garden.
I was inspired by a trip to a local greenhouse.
I LOVE this greenhouse .
They have the SWEETEST lady working there .
Her name is Jean and she also has a KILLER hosta garden .
( which I am really hoping to share with you this summer )
We go there quite often on Wednesdays.
Friend Kathy loves the showroom and home décor
( her tastes aren't on the junky side like mine )
but Addie and I love to hang out in the greenhouse !
They have an extensive variety of plants specifically for Fairy Gardens.
and accessories,
Addie especially loved the Pixie Dust .
Imagine that.
I have sparkles everywhere !
Although she's not quite sure why everything doesn't fly when she sprinkles it.
Maybe someone from Disney could explain that to her ,
cause this Grandma DID NOT have that answer .
Jean has such a talent for making Fairy Gardens .
She even gives classes.
I loved they way she had the little vine growing around the gazebo.
I was so inspired that Addie and I picked out three plants
and went home to make one.
I already had some accessories I wanted to use .
How cute are these ?
Even the plant tags are named for fairies .
First ,
since the container I wanted to use didn't have drainage,
I filled the bottom with SMALL pebbles .
then a light potting mix
and my little fairy plants.
I choose and Irish Moss ( one of my favs ),
a Persian Chocolate Plant ,
and a Blue Star Creeper.
Next I added the "extras".
Really, this is what makes the garden special.
I found my little " Buddha Fairy " at a store called Seed
in Des Moines.
If you like plants , garden , whimsy ,
you MUST visit Seed !
From the minute I walked in , I felt the magic of the place .
It was all the girls could do to get me out of there !
The crystal rock came from our trip to Arkansas a little while back.
We drove through a section of Arkansas that was famous for crystal mining .
I love it !
The great thing is this little garden can transition to the outdoors,
when it ever gets warm enough !
To see the post on the Mini/ Fairy Garden I made last summer ,
go HERE and Here .
Here's hoping Spring arrives SOON !
I SO need to dig in the dirt !
Hubby has some great poop-dirt at the farm to add to the raised beds.
They are going to be AWE*SOME this year !
