Making Memories in Your Fairie Garden
I was given a book by my dear friend Tonya a few years back called Toad Cottages and Shooting Stars: Grandma’s Bag of Tricks, by Sharon Lovejoy. It is a wonderful little book with ‘Wonder-filled Grandchild Friendly Activities’. Tonya has the most enchanting gardens I have ever been in. She has labored in this garden, which takes up her entire 1/2 acre backyard, for 30 years. What makes her garden so amazing is the detail in every corner. When she gave me this book and said she had been so inspired to use many of the ideas in it I was ready to be equally inspired. And it didn’t fail.…

Fairy Shoes Made from Natural Garden Objects
Fairie Shoes You can make. Look what we found in the forest today……fairies must be afoot! You can make these Fairie Shoes with the pattern below. Use card stock to make the base. Cut out and tape the top of the shoe to the bottom with masking tape. The shoes are made with Lambs Ear.

There is a feeling in the air. A shift in the sun and a breeze from another direction. The Fairie Circus is on its way.

Pumpkin Fairy Carriage
Enchanted Pumpkin Fairy Carriage I found this Gold Distressed Metal Pumpkin Carriage and had to have it! It looks just like a fairy carriage and I knew when I saw it that I would be able to use it in the house or outside in the fairy garden. It was a nice metal but I wanted some color to use in the garden.
