After the event I attended, I bought the centerpiece (or maybe won it in a raffle), and gave it to my mom. Long after the plants were gone, she stashed away the tiny fence and chair.
Fast forward to this past Mother's Day, when I gave my mom an Armstrong certificate, for the purpose of rebuilding the fairy garden. We went together to pick out the plants, and discovered that they even had a section of 'miniature' plants. However, their clever marketing strategy is to only offer them in pony packs, so you end up with too many plants for one pot.
This one is getting it's first splash of water.
I went to Michael's where I found the perfect tiny polished rocks and glass for a pebbly path. Here is my mom's final result: She even had a tiny goose figure to add to her vignette!
So I had my plants, but no cute props. I began searching on my computer, where I found Market Hill's 'fine fairy houses'. I ordered this teeny tiny bike and the rusty metal fence. This website has everything for fairy houses...even crazy things like holiday decorations and tiny croquet sets.
I happened to have the tiny birdhouse in another plant, so I quickly snagged it and added it to my thyme tree area.
I'm so pleased with the whimsical result. Now if I could just keep the plants from growing!
