Fairy Village Inspiration

There are aspects of home ownership that aren't always enjoyable, yard maintenance for example. Lucky for me, my fabulous husband takes care of almost everything outside (and quite a bit inside, too.) So, instead of pulling weeds, I can focus on doing fun stuff in the yard like gardening and adding a little bit of whimsy.

A few months ago, on a trip to the nursery, I was inspired by a display of fairy gardens. They were absolutely adorable. I ended up making my own little fairy house and creating my own charming little garden that sits next to our front door to welcomes guests.

As I was looking for ideas about how to make my own fairy garden, I ran across some "pinable" pictures.

The picture here that really captured my imagination is the fairy village with little trees and streets connecting the miniature houses. How fun would it be to create an entire fairy village?

With fall just around the corner, I've decided to do exactly that. I have already have the perfect piece of property in mind for my mini-development. It's a rock flower bed in our back yard that could use a little TLC. The tricky part is going to be removing that huge, spiny plant on the right side without severing an artery. The leaves are like serrated knives.

And I'll need to create some fairy houses. Clearly every fairy family would need a different kind of house. And I'd like to add a bit of extra magic by figuring out a way to light my little village at night. Hmm...

So, I'm off to my studio to start designing my enchanting little sub-division.
