On summer days, near an ocean very far away from the Midwest, an adorable little girl loves looking for mermaids. She spends many hours on the beach with her family watching the waves and peering out into the endless blue water, while praying to see a glimpse of a beautiful woman with a green scaly tail. This girl also spends hours in fields and gardens seeking fairy friends. Her young mind is ful...

When I am planning a miniature garden, I sometimes fall completely in love with different color palettes and themes. I have always been a huge fan of pastel colors and have had this idea for a miniature garden in my head for a while.

What is a miniature garden without flowers? When I started my fairy garden education, I fell completely in love with the miniature accessories and the garden scenes I could create with them. However, I overlooked the miniature plants as a background, when I really should have seen how much personality and colorful punch they added to every miniature garden. It took some experience to teach me to s...

The best part about owning your home would have to be the personal touches you can to add to it. Ever since my husband and I bought our home, it has been one project after another. It is a wonderful experience, because we are creating something together. On more than one occasion, my husband has been guilty of helping me with my newest miniature garden.

It is always exciting to celebrate St. Patrick's Day! The Gnomes have been playing games on the fairies and instead of having green clovers in the miniature garden, a colorful, eye-catching Plum Crazy is growing. Loving sun and heat, this compact plant comes in shades of purple and maroon with clover-like leaves. All year long the fairies can take pleasure in the small, yellow blooms that rise abo...

Something that garden fairies are well known for is telling each other stories. These fairytales stem from real-life adventures and narratives passed down from generation to generation. Every person has childhood stories that remind them of a simpler time—a personal favorite of mine was a story about barnyard dances. I remember my mother reading it to me when I was a child, and she somehow turne...
