Fairy Garden

Töchterchen and I have slowly been adding to her fairy garden set-up over the spring and summer.  We started with her painted pot "house" and "swimming pool". 


Next we cut a table and chairs from a tree branch we found on a hike.


Then Männchen accidently broke a ceramic pot and I remembered an idea from Pintrest on how we could repurpose it.

 
 

 That's when things really started to take off.  Now Töchterchen's fairies are becoming quite accessorized and have a rather cozy little set-up.

Bird house and bird bath.

Mushrooms

More mushrooms - the large one was on clearance at Target and after purchasing it, I became inspired to make our own, more to our liking.

 
 
Table set for tea and cupcakes.
 
Closer view of the table setting - I couldn't be more pleased with out it turned out!  Turns out the past four years of fondant/cake sculpting were just preparation for another task - sculpting teeny tiny fairy accessories!
 
The fairies also have a bed for resting up after all the midnight dancing in the flowers.
 



The whole fairy garden set-up.  I thought only Töchterchen would be interested - oh, how she loves her fairies.  But Männchen loves to get in there and play along with her.
 



 
Männchen also has a gnome home!
