Now I have to find some ity bity plants for their garden, It is still a little to cold to put anything out.
I painted them during the winter,and I just made the door.
Hubby bought me a scroll saw ,for Mother`s Day, so I will try to make different doors for the gnomes I painted

Fantasy faeries! What an inspiration!
Your scene reminds me of my neighbor when I was 5 yrs old. She was a very jolly German woman I knew as Mutti. She had the most enchanting garden fit for faeries and gnomes. thanks for sharing your garden!

Wonderfully imaginative. Did you build the little door from concrete and pebble stones?
Thanks very much for sharing.

The door is an old piece of lumber we had, its a 1x10 . I just cut it out with a jig saw. I used construction adhesive,put it on quite thick and pushed the stones in. The door handle is just an old drawer pull,that looks like a branch. I did paint the back black so the wood would be protected and then sprayed it with a clear enamal. Aleta

Very cute, my youngest are in love with fairy gardens. A local nursery does lots of fairy displays. It's the only garden center my kids actually beg to visit. Here's a link with a short but good list of fairy garden companion plants

My local garden center sells minature trees and bushes for fairy gardens. I purchased a 10" Alpine and was told it would grow from 1 to 2 inches per year. Of course I plan to keep it trimmed.
