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.

If so, it may be time to take your miniature garden decorations up just a notch with the addition of instant snow.

Hurrah! It is a warm and bright morning, and you are out digging in the miniature garden. The sun shines down on your miniature plants and fairy garden accessories; there is no better spot to be. The feeling of visiting your oasis when everything is in its place—miniature trees planted, flowers blooming, and fairy houses settled in their appointed areas - is one of the best sensations in the wor...

The weather outside may be frightful, but even in the depths of winter; the miniature garden sure is delightful! Although the sun hides away, and the snow never seems to stop falling, life in the fairy garden continues to flourish. Do not be afraid to extend your hobby into the winter months - whether you move some of your gardens inside, or create new container gardens on a covered porch. If you ...
