Fairy Garden

I have been thinking about making a fairy garden since first seeing  one Brenda from Cozy Little  House made in a wagon, but never got it together till this morning. After getting this:

at a thrift shop this week to replace a very shabby one the project was on its way at last. The beat up green chair went to the front yard. Mr. B and I went to the nursery this morning for plants. After getting home he put holes in the bottom of the container and we started planting and setting it up. Here is the finished product:

And one more  view:

The house, gnome and mushroom all came from thrift shops; the pebbles and sand for the path from the dollar store. You can see how much of a number the cats (I'm looking at you, Butterball!) did on the arms of the chair. We're hoping some stuff  I've sprayed on the replacement will keep this from happening again.

Thank you, Brenda, for being my first inspiration, although I've seen many others on recent blog posts.

Happy gardening to you this weekend!

Fairy gardens are becoming quite popular, aren't they? Yours looks adorable. Since you love cats so much, you'll need to find some small cat figurines for you garden too!
