Imagine my surprise when I saw my fairy houses and their little gardens on Dave's Garden. Thank you, gardengus, for sharing my passion with others. You must have visited our gardens during our Open Garden Days in July. (We are doing it again this year so come back to see what's new!) The houses and the hypertufa planters are handmade and the birdcage was an antique store find that seemed the perfect place for my fairies to hang out. I am hoping to get started on a fairy village this year with different styles of houses. Thanks again for making my day!
I really enjoyed the tour too. I think the caged faries are my favorite too. Have a red bird cage gathering dust. It had been fixed up with artifical flowers, etc. but it is going to go out in the yard now and lots of ideas coming my way.
Love that reading one with the blue outfit. Handmade I'm sure.
The little blue fairy is made of polymer clay and I used Mareen Carlson's book "Fairies, Gnomes & Trolls" as my inspiration. She has several cute styles of fairies that are not difficult to make. My little blue fairy sits on my computer and "speaks" to my imagination as I work this winter. Meet her little dark haired friend, also inspired by Mareen Carlson's book. They would both be about 5 inches tall if standing. I am glad that you enjoyed her. I think fairies are a perfect compliment to miniature gardens. I am trying to look at all the creative people chock full of ideas on this forum. Wow! Thanks again to gardengus for telling me about it.
OMG, I'm going to a workshop on Fairy Gardens this coming Saturday. I'll take plenty of pictures. I have several Hypertufa troughs that I made, and it would be so easy to convert them to fairy gardens. Thanks for the lovely pictures & Ideas, which I'll add to when I have them completed.
