What’s the big deal with people making fairy gardens?
I’ve had conversations recently with two sensible friends who are creating little villages purportedly for their grandkids. I’m not so sure, given all the hype I’ve seen in gardening stores recently. It’s not little kids who buy this stuff.
I have to admit, I kinda liked the little picnic tables with the wine in the baskets. Cute.
In researching this phenonemon, I ran across a tutorial video, so of course I had to share it with you.
In my favorite garden store, Pesche’s in Des Plaines, Illinois, there are shelves and shelves full of miniature dwellings, furniture, garden ornaments, and of course, fairies of all types.
I probably shouldn’t be talking about this anyway. I’m the one who never finished my daughter’s doll house and eventually gave it away when she didn’t want it either. I sometimes wonder whether that made me a bad mom.
Once I got over the shock and awe over all the stuff one could buy to create a fairy village, I thought this set up at Pesche’s was really cute.
That doesn’t mean I don’t love me a little village — don’t forget I LOVE my Dickens Village at Christmas. Yes, I’m unmasked as a hypocrite.
Are you creating a fairy village for your garden this year?
Link up your photos in the comments — and I promise I won’t ridicule you.
