Fairy Garden

Just wanted to share something I did at work! Even though I'm working that doesn't mean all of my creativity is put on hold. I had so much fun constructing this fairy garden that I hope no one buys it so I can bring it home for my yard!
Fairy Garden
I used an old wooden box lined with plastic for the base. The fairy house is actually an unfinished wooden bird house you can purchase at craft stores. I altered it with moss, sticks, and such and made a dwelling fit for a fairy!
Fairy House Front Door
A nice little path of colored gravel leads right to the hinge front door. The door knob is a teensy snail shell that was found in the moss.

Here is a view from another angle. You can see the fun gold ball that I added. I've been collecting interesting objects to add. The blue stone by the door is a piece of glaze from a clay pot. There is also some wee pine cones, interesting sticks, an old pop tab, and a piece of broken mirror, nestled amongst the moss.

Plans are in the works for a smaller version of this too. See kids, work can be fun!

What kind of work do you do that you can create such a wonderous little world there?? It's beautiful!

I work at our family owned greenhouse that my Grandma has had for the last 35 years. She encourages us to be creative and push the limits of the normal flower planters.
