Show and Tell Friday!


Welcome to “Show and Tell Friday!” Do you have something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, or a treasured collection. Look around your home for something to share; dig through those boxes in your closet if you have to! Share photos and the story that goes with your special item.


Garden
Many of you know how much I love fairies, so when Dawn from ~The Feathered Nest~ shared her fairy garden in a large flower pot, I had to make one, too.

Flowers
I already had the pot with plants, but I added some new pink Vincas.

Birdbath
Next came a tiny birdbath.

Garden
A wheelbarrow and shovel. The fairies love to garden.

Table
A table to sit at and relax.

Table
With a view of the pond.

Pond
Which is actually a small mirror!

Flower pots
And tiny flower pots on the stepping stone path.

Garden
Thank you for looking at my show and tell! Our friends are getting married today, so we are busy with wedding preparations. I'll be sure to share pictures soon!

Please read the Show and Tell Guidelines for step-by-step instructions on how to participate.

Darling little fairy garden. It is sooooo cute.
Hope you have a good time at the wedding.

How Sweet! Where did you find such cute little items to put in your Fairy Garden?

Melissa Wertz said...

Mary Esther and I are so impressed with your fairies gardens. I will just have to show here this tomorrow. I think she wants to make one next spring. Maybe we will find some fairies!

Dawn said...

Very very cute! You and Pea love fairy gardens - or faerie, as she says in Ontario.

Jewelgirl said...

The miniatures you added are so
cute in the potted garden. I always see this kind of thing when I go
on the annual Garden walk in my
town. The neatest thing I saw this
year were true to size tea cups on a stick, (I thought I couldn't do that
to lovely tea cups), but it was really a stunning effect in the
storybook garden they were displayed in.

Carla said...

Precious! I'll be making one of those when I have things more settled-thanks for the wonderful, easy ideas!

Rebecca said...

Kelli, I LOVE all the miniatures!! What a fun thing to look at!!

Forgot to leave you a comment! *smacks heads*
This is so precious! I think my mom has a kit of miniatures she bought at a QVC outlet store similar to this. I have an entire garden for gnomes and fairies. I just purchased 'magic mushrooms' like light up at night and change colors. : )
Have a great weekend.

This is so precious! Grace and I have a faury that sits on a rock in our garden...we KNOW she comes to kife just after dark each night. That is why we installed a Fairy Crossing sign, so all who enter will be watchful.
I think we do need to create something like this for her...you are SO inspiring!

Hugs,
Sue
