Okay, I know this is silly for a grown, “old” woman – but I have a fairy garden, and my little fairy seems to enjoy visiting with Ms. Goose
So, I’ve tried a number of things….
- Difficulty finding little pots that would fit in it – and if they did when I watered the plants the water overflowed – again not healthy for the old wood.
- Then I tried artificial plants – they just looked tacky (granted, I didn’t buy the expensive ones).
- I even used it inside as a magazine holder for awhile, but it was really too long for that.
- Just left it empty last year.
Then this year while I was buying the few potted plants I can keep alive (if I remember to water them), I saw a fairy garden and remembered my friend Cathy always has real fairy gardens. Of course, hers have real plants that she tends frequently – and look great. Real plants were not in my plan.
So, after finding all the ‘ingredients’ for a cute little garden at Big Lots and Dollar Tree for a price I was willing to pay, and figuring out how to get the interior of the planter raised so I could actually see the ‘garden’ – I have this adorable little garden where fairies can visit and that does not have to be watered or weeded. Just perfect for me.
Who knew there were so many varieties of fairy garden houses! I picked this one and couldn’t resist having a bridge with ‘water’ flowing under it.
A bench for the fairy to sit when she entertains guests and not chatting with Ms. Goose. Stepping stones from my driveway and grass from some kind of weird moss.
Yup, this was a silly thing to do since I have a gazillion other things I wanted/needed to do, but hey, I’m old that I can pretty much do what I want to do. 🙂
I have learned some significant things through your site post. One other thing I would like to mention is that there are many games that you can buy which are designed particularly for preschool age young children. They include things like pattern acceptance, colors, wildlife, and styles. These typically focus on familiarization instead of memorization. This keeps little kids engaged without experiencing like they are studying. Thanks
WONDERFUL Post.thanks for share..more wait .. …

Thanks Bettye – I had fun making it and I enjoy sitting on the deck just looking at it.
