Fairies and Gnomes

In the world of miniature gardening it is a pleasure to watch the fairies enjoy the beautiful plants and trees. Many of the fairies want to take pleasure in the tranquility of their surroundings, so they post signs to keep the gnomes from entering the garden.  Happily the gnomes are too playful to follow signs and gardeners can enjoy their company.

The world known English artist Cicely Mary Barker has in her small children books, illustrated a series of wonderful flower fairies. Those illustrations are the inspiraton for the fairies you will find here. The fairies come packaged in a window gift box that includes a biography of the artist. The flower fairies can be used in fairy gardens as you see on this site, as Christmas-ornaments and gifts or as collectibles. They add a nice touch to the landscape. Each Flower Fairy comes with a fine gold cord for hanging and a detachable 6” metal floral pick so you can place the fairy in the garden, a flower pot, floral arrangement or gift basket.

Note - like all of us fairies need some sun protection if placed outdoors or in direct sun light. Give them a light spray coating of polyurethane and the color will remain vivid.
