Alice Fairy Garden...Very Merry Un-Birthday!
Alice's Teacup Fairy Garden!
She should be wishing us a Merry Un-Birthday!
A Fairy Garden for Daughter Sascha
I bought this teacup planter at Wal-Mart quite a few years ago. I gave it to Sascha who has loved and collected everything Alice in Wonderland since she was a child. I thought she might use it in her garden. A weird cat with a knowing grin told me she wants an Alice Tea Party theme for her wedding someday. But until I see a ring and get the go-ahead to craft strangely wonderful Alice-related wedding décor, I will have to be content to play Fairy Garden Godmother.

Fairy Gardens seem to be everywhere on Pinterest and Facebook. Many of the craft stores sell the little figures and garden accessories so we all can join in the fun. My grand daughter McKenzie likes to make a fairy garden each year with her Grandma Hyde...what a fun tradition. They use live plants, while I am more comfortable using silk flowers and grasses. I can't be trusted with real plants...lol! Recently I discovered that Disney character play-sets like Snow White and Alice in Wonderland are just the right size to use in a fairy garden if you are a crazy Disney fan like I am.
