We have the cutest neighbor kids. Each time they are out and see either Kay or I in the gardens, they ask to come see the fairies and we always say ok!
So this spring I am trying add a few new homes, some accessories etc
We hope to make more homes to put in the village before summer is over.
I found this cute wooden gazebo at hobby lobby earlier this week and this really cool spray paint that is fun to spray on stuff!
I was so excited to start this project when I got home with the supplies I forgot to get a before photo of the wooden gazebo- lol here it is hanging in the garage while being sprayed with the Sealer.
It's hanging so the trolls and gnomes can't get in it as the fairies can fly up there to hang out. We have several "TROLLS" that come through and wreck stuff on a daily basis (deer, squirrels mostly, little people who like to handle and walk on everything) I am going to be adding a sonar device that only "Trolls with 4 legs" can hear to turn them away from this area.
Frankly , I am getting tired of putting things back up
and look what the Trolls did to this poor Fairy last night-
I suddenly feel like I am so behind I may never catch up. Today is my Granddaughter Madison's 5th birthday and her gift is sitting on my counter waiting to be mailed as I had it in my mind I had a "few more days" to see to it. Nope at least it will still be loved when it gets there next week- sigh
I have been spending most of my time in the garden - GASP! I know! Today it is strangely COLD and yesterday it rained. I added 3 new hosta beds too! But first, I want to share with you what I worked on yesterday- fencing for my Fairy village!
I had a pack of the smaller tongue depresser style sticks so I started making fencing panels and then used some red spray paint to paint them a few times on both sides. This morning I sprayed with sealer. I like the unevenness of the fencing- that way it doesn't look store bought.
And I had these cute lady bugs and glued a stick to them as they will be the "fence" for one of the fairy yards- then I spray painted the sticks black also and just sprayed them with sealer this morning
By afternoon they will be ready to be put out in the fairy village (unless it's as cold as it is now and then it will wait for 15 more degrees!)
Tomorrow I have another couple of projects I have been working on for the fairy village- come back and take a look!
