It's almost time for Fairy Gardens

I decided I needed a little spring in my
life.  At the last minute I signed up for a fairy garden class at our local garden center.  This is a huge garden center.  I knew that we would make our own garden but also hoped to pick up some new tips.  This was a already assembled garden.......It's in one of those huge whiskey buckets.  I am thinking of doing this in my old iron kettle this year.
 These are the gardens that we made.  So fun.  The plants are from "Fairy Garden Kingdom".  They had a whole section of different ones.  Last year I don't know if I looked too late but they had hardly any to choose from.  But I also remember last year they didn't dedicate as much space to these gardens as they have this year.  Everyone was shopping for these teeny gardens.  Several would keep coming by with their carts to listen in.  So funny.  Anyway here are the names of the plants I choose.....Santolina, Ghostly.....Fuchsia, Lottie Hobby......Star Carpet, Alpine White.  I loved the names of the plants.  They even had mulch called fairy mulch. 
I didn't really learn a lot from the class.  All the other people taking the class had also made the gardens before .  It was just fun and something green.  Now to keep mine alive before it can go outside.  That's almost 2 months.  It's supposed to snow here in a little while.
This was our teacher Rocket.  Yes that was her name.  She was very sweet even though this picture doesn't show it.  It was hot and very bright under the big plastic house.This was a cute garden with the little boy, wagon and crochet set.
This was another huge garden.  The little stone house is similar to the one I have but much smaller.  I can't find the person that makes the one I had anywhere.  It's a Hupertufa house.  This one was about $60.  I got mine for about $40 and 4 years ago.  Now it would sell for over $100 if you can find it anywhere
A mother and a daughter that went to the class asked me to take their picture at the checkout.  So I asked them to take mine.  With the sun shining in from behind me that white ole hair blends in with the background.  I know I seem to have a lot of pictures of me in this top.  Okay, now I am planning on how I want to use my glamper in a fairy garden.  This will be fun. Any ideas.
I said that I would talk about the funeral later and respond to your comments.  I just can't seem to write about it.  So with that said.  RIP Tyler.
I hope all of you are having a week full of good memories.

Your fairy garden class looks like so much fun, Debby! Nice to have some Spring inside while you're still getting snow outside. It's pretty Spring-y here now, so we're enjoying it while it lasts - just a short time.
Thanks for your note about the butterfly! Would your girls like some paper dolls? I have a bunch but no girls (4 grandsons!)& I'm downsizing. I like to find new homes for my things :)
Maybe later you'll be able to talk about Tyler's funeral service. Such a difficult time for all of you, and I'm so sad for you. It's so hard to process something like that, but hopefully later on you'll be able to focus on some good memories. All the best, Jane

I love all the little fairy gardens, so sweet! You must live someplace warm, it snowed here today. It will be a while before I can get my fairy garden out. Laura

I'm glad you had a wonderful place to dream and think of spring happiness. It's been such a very long winter. Your fairy garden class looks like so much fun.

What a fun class to take! I keep seeing more & more fairy garden accessories in all the stores...it's only a matter of time before I jump on the bandwagon, too.

I am planning on making one this year in an old wheel barrel we have. I want to have a special one for Kara in her play area

Pam Kessler said...

You can spend a fortune on little chairs and houses, can't you :) It's snowing right now, but hopefully it won't stick around. It's almost April, for gosh sake!

I would love to attend one of those classes. I made one last year and look forward to doing another one. You look pretty in purple.

Warm hugs

That looks like such fun. I would learn a lot to find out the names of the plants you can use. That's a cute photo of you. I say the same thing...I wear favorite tops and always seem to have them on for photos! Enjoy your week. Sending you bunches of hugs sweet friend!

you have beautiful hair!!!! I really enjoy seeing the fairy gardens they are like the joy of doll houses only outside, I have never made one, I must do this,

NanaDiana said...

I so wish I lived close enough to go to some of these things with you, Debby, although I fear with our wicked sense of humor we would wet our pants laughing!
Love your fairy garden and I hope to get my own up and running in June- too cold before then.

Again, I am so sorry about Tyler....my heart goes out to all the families whose lives have been affected by this tragedy- xo Diana

Debby, you cute thing!! I love that picture of you. We have twin hair, don't we!!
I love my Fairy gardens and I must get out and spruce them up after many months of growth. Mine are a little different..and I am thinking of buying a few more things...I love to shop for them. I am looking for teeny tiny baby roses...to add. I just added a bit of Baby Tears a couple of days ago. :) Even our gardener is considering making one for his twins. Not really a childrens thing though they love to look at them.
Hugs!

You always take great photos with that winning smile.
Wow those little houses are expensive, maybe you could make your own houses. Love that little wicker chair. Just too cute.
Hugs,

Hello,
I plan to create a fairy garden this year. :-) I did a post about it awhile back. How exciting to read yours.
This looks like a fun class and amazing garden center.
Thank you for the post.

How cute! I don't have a fairy garden and it's on my list of things to make if Spring ever make an appearance around here!

Blessings

What fun! I noticed that Hobby Lobby has a whole aisle this year devoted to fairy garden items.

Olive said...

Well done Debby. I love minis of any sort. I am itching to garden. Bought my first foxglove today. xo, olive

vivian said...

my fairy garden is still sitting outside where its been all winter. I never brought any of the little garden decor in so Its looking a little dirty and beat up, including the fairy.
someday soon it'll warm up and I'll be able to go out to play!
be sure to show us your finished fairy garden!
happy day
xoxo

I just love the fairy gardens. Maybe this year I will look into making one for myself. I wish my hair would turn all gray instead of the gray here and there like it is now. Your hair is beautiful. You have a wonderful evening, hugs, Edna B.
