Show and tell Friday

Posted by Ginger~~Enchanting Cottage

For those of you who read my blog know that I don't do craft's. Not because I don't like to but because I am not very good at it. But what I do LOVE to make are these fairy gardens. I made this one for my sister in - law who just turned 50 this month. I make them in all sorts of pots put I chose to use a crate for this fairy garden.

OH ! and this little cottage lights up. I just see myself sitting inside this cottage with a cup of coffee, and after my coffee I would go and play in the garden. What a life!

That's darling. I talked to Nancy for about an hour a few days ago. She told me about your gift and how cute it was. I'm glad you posted pictures so I can see it. You are very talented.
Have a great day!

I love the cup a saucer. What a cute idea for the cottage.
This is my first visit to your blog, I'll come back to visit from time to time.

What a cute idea! I've never even heard of a Fairy Garden! You are DEFINITELY creative!

Oh it's beautiful! How lovely. I am not good at crafts myself...I like children's crafts, you know messy making. I can sew a bit too, I just don't do it often :)

And I am quietly amazed that more people prefer painted wood to natural (your poll)...I love wood...I just voted to increase the natural wood vote :)

Ginger, don't ever say you are not crafty. Your fairy garden is so beautiful and that in its self is a craft. Hey could you perhaps do a post on how you set them up. I would like to try one for our deck this spring and summer.

You did a nice job, you have a
green thumb! This is another
way to be crafty I think. I
also liked the china things
on your earlier post.....Luv

Oh that is the sweetest thing. I don't know but I think this qualifies you for being crafty...

Hi Ginger,I love your fairy garden and the little cottage is just precious. What a sweet treasure for your SIL. Have happy weekend. Hugs Linda

What a cool idea. It makes me think of the shadow boxes we made as children. I did one for Nancy Drew's "The Hidden Staircase". But it is cute and you can let your imagination run--love that house--where did you find it?

February 15, 2008 at 8:49 PM

That is just the cutest thing ever! Very clever. I think my son's might enjoying making one of those! Thanks for sharing!

Oh I'm in awe! How pretty, your little garden make my wings flutter... I'm a fairy, in an enchanted garden! Thank you...

That is the cutest thing I have seen. I love it. I always tell my husband that the fairies are in our garden at night.
You need to do a tutorial for us on how to make one.

February 16, 2008 at 12:18 AM

Oh, Ginger, that is so lovely. She must love it! I'd like to have coffee in that cottage, too!

February 16, 2008 at 8:17 AM

Ginger you can email me any time you want to. I think you still have my email address don't you?

February 16, 2008 at 8:36 AM

I would say you're great at crafts! I love the Fairy Garden, what a sweet idea. I would like to join your for tea in the cottage. Would love to see a post on how you make one!

A fairy garden...awww...that is so cute! I love that the cottage lights up! You say you don't do crafts...I'd say you sure do!!! :)
