Finally a home for my ever growing stash of fairy garden products ~ the white wrought iron terrarium I bought several years ago at Hobby Lobby:
It's primary function has been a home for seed starting but setting it up as a fairy garden will make it infinitely more useful.
My initial idea for setting everything up in the garden got nixed when the wind & snow tore up my fancy gazebo & tossed its itsy weather vane into oblivion. These tiny little pieces are too expensive (and cute!) to leave to the elements!
Encased in glass is a much safer way to go.
Notice the adorable Martin house!
Now, if the terrarium were only bigger! or could I possibly have too many pieces???
Not a chance!
The little bee skep (above) is one of my favorite pieces. Along with this tiny obelisk:
Why is everything SO much more adorable in miniature??!!
Like the parrot in a cage (above) and sweet seating for two (below):
I've gotta say Pinterest really inspired me to set up my own fairy garden. There are so many incredible pins on this subject.
One of the pieces I've really admired (and secretly coveted) is a fairy garden greenhouse. Maybe that's because I want a lifesize one so bad! Check it out here ~ it's pricey but a must-see!!!
I purchased most of my products at local greenhouses but there are many websites to order from if you don't have a local option available. Amazon, Miniature Garden Shoppe, Faire-Ality Style are a couple that have cool products. You're also welcome to check out my Pinterest "Fairyland" board here and follow any interesting link (there are 150+ pins) ~ it may just inspire you to create your own wee garden.
Beware tho, it's another potential addiction ~ just a friendly warning!!!!
