Fairy Garden Creations

Last week was our Fairy Garden class, each participant young and old had fun creating a new fairy habitat. Gates, arbors, gazing pools, resting thyme patches, privacy areas, pathways and walkways were all included in the gardens. A variety of boxes and baskets were used and about 4 or 5 plants, all favorites of the wee folk were included. Of course lots of glitter, sparkles, found objects such as shiny pebbles, acorns, and sea shells were included. Everyone left with a terrific home, sure to attract the fairies!

When I was a little girl, my "Grammie Grunt" and I would would take our burdoch leaf umbrellas, a thermos of tea and some cookies and go down into the meadow by a small brook and have tea with the fairies. They were very shy and so we didn't usually see them, but we always left them some cookies on a leaf and sent some cookie bits on a leaf in the brook for the water sprites who lived under the bridge. Grammie was a wonderful grandmother.
