We have the Winners of the Fairy Garden Competition!But first, I need to let you know that choosing winners has been the hardest thing EVER! All of your gardens are beautiful enough to win, from the wonderfully child-made, played-in mossynesses, to the delightfully detailed miniature fairy wonderlands. Each and every garden is a work of art and all have brought amazing joy to me and my family. We have poured over your pictures, used your clever ideas in our own fairy gardens and delighted in the pure enchantment you and your little ones have created. For this delight, I want to thank you all from the deepest parts of my heart. You have made us smile and laugh and imagine. Thank you! Thank you!Without further ado… here are the winners, kind of in no particular order:

From Felicity and her sweet daughter S, here are photos of their Fairy and Cheeky Dragon Garden. Please click on the link to see more photos of this delightful land of magic and prepare to be utterly enchanted.

Look at their waterfall!

I fell in love with the innocent expression of joy I saw on S’s face here :-)

S, your sweet Beddy-bye Doll from Laleebu Toys is on her way to you. Thank you for sharing your beautiful garden with us all.

This fairy garden (from The Juicery) is full of all kinds of fairy delights. We have gazed and gazed at this garden many times and the fun thing is that we keep on seeing new things. Just this morning Kitty spotted a nest with robins eggs in the tree!

Do yourself a favor, friends, and click here to have a look at all of their photos… there are SO MANY charming details!
From The Enchanted Cupboard you guys have won this super cute Acorn Stacker. It will make a wonderful addition to your fairy garden.

We just loved April’s story of how she and her ‘older’ daughter gave fairy gardening a try and became totally and utterly engrossed in the business of fairy gardening. I smiled to see how they, like me when Kitty, Teddy and I made our fairy garden, found their inner-child again :-). Now that is magic!
More photos can be viewed on Aprils blog, April’s Homemaking.

From Felt On The Fly, you two have won a five piece felt ‘color story’ (8″ x 12″). You can choose any available color story in the shop or you can create your own story by choosing any five colors. I hope you will come back to show us what crafting fun you two have been up to with this gorgeous felt.

Phew, that’s it folks. Congrats to the winners.

 

To all of us and our beautiful children who sent in photos of our magical fairy gardens, we are all winners… we are winners for experiencing the joy of making our gardens with our children and seeing our children playing in their gardens. And, most of all, they are the winners of the grand prize… their gift is the belief that fairies really do exist, their knowledge that the world is magical and that they can have fun by playing in their own imaginations.

 

I hope you’ll make a Fairy Garden of your own and enter it into this year’s Fairy Garden contest. Please visit the Fairy Garden tab HERE or in the top NAVIGATION bar to see all the Fairy Garden tips, tutorials, features and enchanting photos.

 

Blessings and magic,
Donni
