Saturdays Are Fun: Fairy Garden Inspiration

Social Media Team

Julie Ann Shahin, Social Media Team

Today’s installment of “Saturdays Are Fun” is inspired by my own mother! She is a life-long believer in fairies, perhaps it’s due to her Irish heritage and belief in Irish fairies. I was looking for garden ideas on Pinterest when I stumbled upon this photo of a fairy door. I immediately thought of my mother, and sent this idea to her.

 

 

Then I saw another fairy garden, and realized that these photos would make great inspiration to share with you all.   There are fairy gardens in bird-baths, in planters, fairy homes in vintage wagons, with awesome leaf roofs, in wheelbarrows, picnic baskets, vintage crates, books, chairs, and gourds. Plus many more fairy doors, even a steampunk door (scroll to the end). Lots of eye candy as I know fairies are quite popular. After all, Tangie has a handful of kits with fairy elements in her store:  ATC Fairy Grace, ATC Fairy Queens, My Fairy Friends 1 to 5.  Check out these super delightful and adorable gardens and then you can see my own page that I was motivated to create at the end of this post. I hope you’ll be inspired too!
