My gawd, but I am in Lurve with mini-gardens (commonly known as "fairie gardens"). I've been yapping about doing one for months... I've been scouring Pinterest looking for any & all ideas. I've been coveting all the little arches & furniture & mini clotheslines & hammocks & small plants & planning! Oh, the planning.
Puffy Kracker just wanted me to Shut. Up.
I lucked into a sale & purchased a little house, a picnic table, fence pieces, & some stepping stones about 3 weeks ago. I stole some small plants from Conrad & Bronco Bill (including a baby pine tree!). I crafted up a wishing well, bridge, & gate (thank you, glue gun & popsicle sticks). I decided that my barrel planter would be the perfect location. But I just couldn't figure out my theme...
Until I was rooting around in the toy box for some mini stuff to give Sissy for a practical joke & discovered my long-forgotten Smurf figurines from B.A. (Before Adulthood). & suddenly, everything clicked into place.
I've since added a row of cedars behind the house, & across the stream. I Love it SO HARD!
Already making plans for next year (Fraggles, Sesame Street, Garfield, & South Park - oh my!)
