Thoughts and ideas while planning a miniature garden.

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

This last summer we took a road trip to Tennessee, on our way we played an alphabet game of finding letters on billboards posted along the roadway. I would not be surprised if people driving in nearby cars could hear, my husband or I shout out, “N” as we saw a sign announcing that we had entered the city limits of Nashville. Signs are famous in fairy gardens too. In fact, there is a tale told ...

February is a month when we have thoughts about affection towards others in our lives - whether that means love of a partner, love of a child, or love of a friend. These different kinds of love kept popping into my head as I planned my newest fairy garden to celebrate my first Valentine's Day with a child of my own. I think we all look for special ways to have a good time and decorate our homes fo...

I have always had a soft spot for anything that holds a real and significant rustic charm. My feelings became obvious when I was driving through the country with my husband, dogs, and daughter in our big ol' truck. I believe there was something about those Sunday morning trips to the dog park, which reminded me that the world is beautiful and magical. We need to appreciate our rural areas and hold...

For my miniature fairy garden, I thought it would be fun to follow a new trend that I have seen on social media. The trend I am talking about is an ethnic style with traditional designs that takes its roots from Moorish and Moroccan architecture. Skilled craftspeople create richly colored pieces of art that are reproduced in the world of miniature gardening. The intricate and bold Moroccan pattern...

As the snow was falling outside my living room window and my daughter was taking a nap, I decided to curl up on the couch beside my dogs, Chip and Sawyer. A decorating magazine in hand, I began flipping through the pages to find articles and pictures revealing the current color trends (a guilty pleasure of mine). I read that Pantone selected Ultra-Violet as the visionary color of the year. Is it a...

When artisans have a passion for a craft, it is evident by the quality of the finished product. Even in miniature gardening, their work has unique designs that stand out in the tiny green spaces. Many storybooks depict fairies in a magical, overgrown, green forest surrounded by mature trees, moss, wildflowers, and mushrooms. That is why some gardeners view mushrooms as an integral part of miniatur...

There was once a family of four young bears. Angler, Jolly, Kringle, and Merry all loved the winter holidays. This past year, they heard about a town filled with nature-loving flower fairies who share their fondness for Christmas. The bears traveled through the deep woods of Northern Wisconsin to find the magical nursery with displays of miniature plants and fairy accessories - plus an assortment...

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...
