Happy Labor Day!
In honor of this day, I’d like share with you a wee bit of labor Newt and I engaged in over the weekend.
We built a fairy garden to bring a bit of nature into our home.
Here’s the view from above:
With the exception of the tiny tropical “tree” we spent a whopping $1.99 on and the $1.00 fairy house from the Chinese market, all of the materials used were found in or around our home. Grass was created from moss we harvested from around our mailbox. A couple of lovely weeds from the yard complete the shrubbery.
We used a bit of hot glue and twigs to form the bridge spanning a pebbled creek bed. A tiny walking path leads from the house to the shell pond (treated with a layer of spray shellac to keep from leaking). More shells, this time used as bowls, adorn the stone table. A few more stones and shells round out the scene.
I’m not sure which of us is more enchanted with our new toy. Imagine our surprise when a fairy moved right in! It appears as though she spent so much time enjoying her new home that she completely forgot to bring in the washing.
