I think her houses were homemade. This one is with a display of mini hosta.

You have to look carefully to see the bronze fairy in this one.

I think the caged fairies are my favorite too. I have a large antique birdcage that is gathering dust that would be perfect for that!

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.

Thanks for the kind word on the fairies. Just gotta do something to keep the brain cells from dying over the winter.

Omgosh! I LOVE the fairies in the birdcage!

I've passed up a handful of antique cages, not knowing what to do with them.

Now I know!

Fantastic idea!

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.

Pictures, I LOVE them. I have small objects that I had planned on using in a tiny garden whenever I get all my other projects finished. Looking forward to enjoying them.
