Shhhh there are Faeries Hiding

We love fairies and have created and constantly added to a fairy garden for big and small fairies over the last seven years.  Our littlest now claims it as hers but the eldest still leaves letters and pictures for the fairies, they have been a bit slack with replying lately. Every time we visit the op shop it is hard to resist a little something for the fairy garden. We've also had fun painting old logs for chairs and an old letter box, building fairy tee pees, spreading sparkles and watching critters visit our fairy garden. On birthdays the fairies sometimes leave a little something for the kidlets in the letter box, they also seem to know just when a sad soul might need cheering up.



  1. Love the letterbox sweet. Also logs painted toadstool style..very cute! Your kids will have beautiful memories of this space to treasure.

  2. such sweet photos! i love the fairy mail box; what a GREAT idea...


In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.

“She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbour:
"Winter is dead.”
― A.A. Milne, When We Were Very Young
