    I put his together today after finding this pot and saucer on clearance. It is about 8X11 inches and 3 inches deep. I had the sign, chair and fairy already. fairy garden.JPG

    None of the plants had name labels! I think they are a miniature variegated ficus, a creeping fig and some type of miniature palm.

    I was so busy trying to figure out the plants I forgot to tell you I got a 40% savings. :) Gotta love a good sale.

    I saw this Acorn Bird House on a Pintrest I think,

    And I have this tiny bird house, someone gave me years ago. It is in a potted plant here in the house. I have wanted to paint it and add it to the upcoming Fairy Village I am planning.

    That's adorable @Carol Dee !
    One of these days I would love to do a fairy garden in my deck box... maybe with my grand daughters next year. The nursery I go to has a big section of the neatest fairy decor, garden tools, arbors, birdbaths, etc... I'm always looking to get ideas how I could make them myself.

    @rebbetzin, crafters sell those little bird houses here with 'mosquito house' written on them. I think for a joke but I don't really get it...o_O LOVE the acorn birdhouse, very cute for a fairy garden!

    I have been watching the oak trees for acorns to drop. I have several ideas for them. ;)

    When we move to WV I am planning to do a huge fairy village somewhere on our farm and leave it for the kids to discover. :) Not planning on telling them it was me. Also planning to make little forts etc. for them.

    You haven't been looking around my house. This year is one of the worst for acorns! Or perhaps it is the best year for two hunting cats. Either way the acorns are taking over.
