My Fairy Garden

I enjoy making fairy gardens. I fell in love with the craft a couple of years ago after visiting a Renaissance Fair and seeing them in abundance. Think of fairy gardening like playing with dollhouses—creating scenes with fairies conversing, listening, and enjoying one another. Even animals, gnomes, and trolls find their way into the stories. While learning the craft, I realized it would be fun to create a new series featuring a fairy garden shop. I visited a similar shop in Tustin, California, and was enthralled. For my first garden, I created a basket “pot” featuring the fairy in my series—Fiona. She loves to read. Then I fashioned an entire fairy “village” in the nook outside my office. Next, I tested my hand at creating pots featuring a variety of scenarios—a father fairy fishing with his son, two impish trolls spying on girl fairies, and a frog asking a princess fairy for a kiss. As you can see, my garden has grown. I hope my snapshots will inspire you.
