fairy garden

Since I can't do much gardening anymore, and I really miss it, I thought I'd try a fairy garden in my flowerboxes on the front porch. The following are pictures of my first try. The walkway is made of sea shells the grandkids got a couple of months ago at the beach. The water is blue glass beads and the plants are little star flower ground cover and several different catsus (ones with out the prickly things). The fairies and the house I got from a catalog. I got several other houses but they may be too big for the flowerboxes. What do you think - cute?

I've been toying with the idea of making a fairy garden but keep thinking it will get ruined if we have a hard rain. So I might try one in one of my flowerboxes. I bought a fairy village awhile back and have been anxious to put it up. Hopefully pictures will follow soon.

My 90 year old mother has decided to clean out some of her closets. We have been talking about this for years. Yesterday she showed me 5 little outfits she kept from when I was a little girl. They are cute and after she shows them to my sister she will give them to me and I'll take a picture or two.
