Thoughts and ideas while planning a miniature garden.

Below is a list of blog posts with the most recent ones listed first.

When you grow up in the Midwest, it never even occurs to you that instant snow exists. When I started planning a miniature garden for the Christmas holiday, I wanted to create something special for an aunt of mine who lives in Arizona. It is a state that infamously has absolutely no snow, which can be disappointing this time of year. When I started on my search for ways that I could add the fluffy...

This time of year, one of the most special family traditions that some of us share is gathering to cut down, put up, and decorate our Christmas trees. A new tradition for our family is to create a fairy garden for the holidays. While working together on our fairy garden, we select a miniature Picea glauca, Jean’s Dilly Spruce Tree for our newest Christmas-themed display. Now our tradition is a d...

In ancient Ireland, the offerings left out for our fae friends were usually a bowl of milk or freshly churned butter. As time moved on, the garden fairies began to experience growth in eating sweets and cakes, because of their plentiful and boundless appetites. In today’s miniature gardens, the wee folk entertains thoughts about celebrations, and because of that, we do not want to be shy about ...

I may pick a theme, such as life at the lake, for decorating my fairy houses. Sometimes I do not feel imaginative, and these schemes get my creative juices flowing. Images of miniature accessories and fairy g...

Some of the best days of my life involved diving into silly and fun projects with my mom. She is a certified craft master who can usually create “one of a kind” masterpieces with whatever material she has available. That is why mom was so excited to start planting miniature gardens with me; it was another opportunity for both of us to express ourselves. During the past few years, we created ga...

I think we all grew up hearing stories of notorious pirates terrorizing the ocean and burying their treasures on islands, which can only be found using a treasure map. Rumors about curses, battles at sea, and fights with merchant ships have been told throughout the years. Then there are child-friendly views of pirates. These stories are part of all of our histories and because of that; we have cla...

The most important thing to remember when you start planning a fairy garden with your little sprout is to make it fun! Gardening provides excellent opportunities to have your child select some miniature accessories to create a simple space just for them.

The truth about the world of magic and fairies is that every day we learn something new about the mythical universe. Even our garden friends were surprised to learn about the existence of unicorns. These powerful horse hybrids were so well hidden in the fairy garden that our mischievous occupants did not know the unicorns were hanging around the miniature plants.

A witch has always been thought of as a woman who possesses magical powers, and they tend to lean toward the dark side of magic. Witches are often viewed as evil, but in my opinion, I think of witches as representative of nature, healing, and other things that were not well understood at the time. That is why when it comes to miniature accessories, they are the ideal candidate for a Halloween-them...
