Faerie land

I think I feel a new addiction coming on
Seriously.... I could make these faerie gardens all day long.
A couple fish tank castles from the dollar store make perfect faerie castles
Or at least I could, before my back crapped out on me. Thank you for all your comments by the way- it's better than it was, but I'm still mostly confined to the couch or the bed, with brief bouts of walking in between to keep things from getting too stiff.

But I made these beauties on Wednesday, before the back episode. I started making more because I have a party I'm going to next weekend, and I thought they would make a lovely hostess gift. But in order to have enough variety in each garden, you have to buy several plants. But you don't use the whole plant... so that means there are lots of bits left over that need to be used up...
I couldn't get any more of the large pots, so these ones are quite small and without ornament.
But they really don't need them, I don't think.
They are a mix of Coleus, Hens and Chicks, Scottish Moss, Allysum, and Elfin Thyme. The last three all flower, so in a week or two, they will fill out nicely and be blooming away.

I just have to figure out what I'm going to do with all of them!

Beautiful! Lovely gifts! I wonder if you could find a little butterfly on a stick ornament for the ones without castles and such - know what I am talking about?? They have them at the craft stores in the fake flower dept.

Wow....they are beautiful! I can see where you could get carried away with making them. Your hostess is going to love hers.

So cute!!!

There was a class in fairie gardens at the Sanford Historical Museum last week, but I didn't get a chance to go. :-(

Yours are adorable!

Those are really beautiful little gardens! What a lovely gift!

If I were near you, I would totally take one off your hands! Take care!
