I do not think I truly understood the power of friendship until I was past my school years, well out of college, and physically separated from many of my friends by distance, as well as life experiences. As young people, we believe that the friendships forged through sleepovers, friendship bracelets, hours-long telephone calls, hobbies, and team sports will be those that stay with us forever.

Though at this very moment you may be sitting in front of a computer screen or scrolling on your phone, what happens when you imagine yourself in the miniature garden?

Spring has officially sprung in the miniature garden! The snow has melted away, the ground has thawed, and tiny shoots of green are beginning to appear amidst the miniature houses and fairy garden accessories.

Miniature gardens can be lush with greenery and teeming with life, but they can also be specially designed to promote peace, relaxation, and a minimalist sense of order. You may have encountered Zen gardens in your travels, or when reading about miniature gardens, and wondered to yourself, “What exactly is a Zen miniature garden?

As the seasons' change and the days become a little lighter, a little greener, and a little more cheerful, springtime arrives in the miniature garden in full force. For Peter Rabbit and friends from Beatrix Potter’s classic stories, nothing quite says “springtime” like a trip to Cotswold Cottage! Easter season in the Old English countryside means rolling hills, sweet-smelling flowers, and...

Springtime is upon us! Well, almost. There may still be snow on the ground and a chill in the air, but the signs of spring, at long last, are sure to appear like magic in the coming weeks.

Fairy gardens come in all shapes and sizes. From large-scale gardens in the yard to those that put the “miniature” in miniature garden through innovative container use, fairy gardens are a wonderful way to share your personality, passions, and artistry with all those who visit your space. If you are looking to spice up this year’s garden designs with the addition of some new containers, look...

Can you picture it? Visualize waves rolling gently nearby, bright sunrises over the beach, and the smell of salt on the air. Ah, do you see a peaceful seaside life! If you have ever daydreamed of living by the beach, it might be time to design your own ocean escape in the fairy garden. For those of us who prefer tropical plants (or lack a green thumb), beach scenes are a delightful way to decorat...

When planning a fairy garden, you might be focused on all of the miniature houses, garden fairies, and miniature plants you want to include in your space. That makes sense, but sometimes a gal needs to consider herself as well! Planting in the miniature garden is significantly less enjoyable if you are uncomfortable, inappropriately dressed, or simply not feeling your best. What is one of the e...

We all have those days. Some of us even have those weeks or months! Cold temperatures, cloudy skies, and reduced sunlight can leave us feeling blue, blah, or just completely down in the dumps. According to researchers, about 5% of adults experience some form of Seasonal Affective Disorder each year, and in northern states, that number can climb up to 10%. Depression, anxiety, and irritability are ...
