Ideas for Tablescapes Using Miniature Fairy Garden Accessories http://www.123articleonline.com/articles/959586/ideas-for-tablescapes-using-miniature-fairy-garden-accessories As I gaze out my studio window, the river looks like a mirror and images of the shoreline seem painted on the water. All the leaves have fallen to the ground to create a blanket of colors in orange, rust, and golden tones. Fall is here in the northern regions of Wisconsin. Knowing that our grandchildren will soon be visiting, I started thinking of ways to extend the beauty of fall. My creative side began visualizing how I could use my fairy garden accessories to decorate the dining room table. Planning a Children's Tiny Treasure Fairy Garden Party http://www.123articleonline.com/articles/943351/planning-a-childrens-tiny-treasure-fairy-garden-party Image a miniature, fairy garden party where the children go home with their very own tiny treasure! The party could have a theme related to a holiday or occasion, or the creative gathering could be a get-together of little ones spending an afternoon gardening. Since I am a grandparent, I would enjoy spending some time with my grandchildren's friends and their parents. Raining Handbags in the Miniature Fairy Garden http://www.123articleonline.com/articles/876011/raining-handbags-in-the-miniature-fairy-garden Have you heard of the saying, 'Going to Heaven in a Handbag?' I had not, but when my co-workers' creative minds started to design a miniature garden greenhouse display that put a twist on this saying, I was intrigued. Shades of Pink in Fairy Gardening http://www.123articleonline.com/articles/950017/shades-of-pink-in-fairy-gardening What is it about the color pink that is so popular with little girls? Even though my granddaughter wore newborn clothes in the colors of lime green, purple, and yellow - today as a five-year-old she loves pink. This past week we have been planning her miniature fairy garden and the color theme evolved, not surprisingly, into shades of pink. Top Three Fairy Garden Accessories http://www.123articleonline.com/articles/960767/top-three-fairy-garden-accessories Today I was wondering, 'What are the top selling fairy garden accessories? What excites gardeners when they start planning a miniature garden?' From my findings, it is evident that classic accessories are the most popular items that people purchase - from Terra Cotta pots to white wood picket fences. It was interesting to see that countries or states, where a person lived, did not influence the top fairy garden choices. Why I Planned an Up North Miniature Garden http://www.123articleonline.com/articles/949697/why-i-planned-an-up-north-miniature-garden Last night our dog started whining. It was after midnight, so I was not pleased when her purpose to be outside consisted of running around the yard looking for feathery friends. Our dog, Josey, is a bird dog. She also likes listening and looking for deer, frogs, and chipmunks - animals that she can sniff-out. As I was standing there, wishing I were sleeping in bed, the rich, tremolo sound of a loon echoed across the river.
