Fairies & Fairy Gardens

Good Morning! And what a bright sunshiny day it is!  Almost makes me want to go out and play in the dirt. Alas, I need to go play in the mud instead!  But you can play in the dirt!  Why not join the new craze of building Fairy Gardens?  Here are a few ceramic figures to help you get started.

Fairies CCFirst, our new set of Three Fairies. (The mold actually says pixies but I don’t know the difference, do you?)   I am not real happy with how they turned out but at least I can show you what they look like.

As shown in the photo, one is a shelf sitter but you could set her on a bench or rock in your garden.  One is lying down with her feet up behind her, and one is sitting with her feet out in front of her. They are each about 4″ x 6″.

We also have some fairy houses you could  use in a container garden.

The picture on the left is the Nibble Nook House that I painted last year. The little mouse sitting in the foreground is supposed to be on a swing that hangs from the mushroom tower on the right. Unfortunately, his brother was glued on first and then he wouldn’t fit. Catalog pictures also show the Nibble Nook House with bunnies.

On the right is the Mushroom House.  It comes with two small mushrooms in the same style, and is shown with soft bunnies on a soft base. You can place it directly into your garden without the base if you like, and use it with or without the bunnies.

small fawnThis Cute Little Fawn is only 3″ long and would look really cute in your garden as well.  We have a large selection of small animal figures including forest animals, bunnies, frogs, turtles, more mushrooms, and so on.

And then there are the Christmas Village houses and accessories that fairy gardeners often incorporate into their works of art. Besides houses, there is a covered bridge, a stone wall, a picket fence, an outhouse, a fruit stand, a lighthouse, farm animals, cars, people, and on and on. Just use your imagination and you will have enough pieces to make several fairy gardens.

In our shed sits a red washtub we bought to use for cold drinks at picnics. (But we have coolers for that.) I am thinking it would be much more useful as a container garden! So look for it next time you come by!
