2014 Fairy Garden Contest : Finalists : Part TWO - The Magic Onions

2014 Fairy Garden Contest : Finalists : Part TWO

Yesterday, I shared Part ONE of the Fairy Garden finalists with 8 magical gardens.

Today is Part TWO and I have another 8 enchanting gardens to show you.

I’ll start with this AMAZING creation from the Twig and Toadstool kids (click on the link to see closeup photos).

Isn’t it breathtaking?! So much detail… acorn cap bowls, pine cone tables and chairs, mossy beds. You’ll need to pour over these photos for quite a while and you’ll still be seeing new enchantments all the time. And, can you see that everything is picked up from nature. Wow!!!

I do love tree trunk fairy gardens. Look at this sweet one…

It has little potted plants, such a charming pathway and even a little party banner. But, most of all, I love to see a real fairy playing in it. Lea, your garden is beautiful.

Here is Sarah’s fairy garden. Oh I love it SO much… with it’s pink little bucket and its colorful wood house.

And, do you see the little fairy? Isn’t she wonderful in her crochet dress and acorn hat!

But, what I love most is Sarah and her sweet Fairy Garden sign. This sign, quite literally, melts my heart!

Your garden is enchanting Sarah… well done!

Here’s another gorgeous Fairy Garden, made by Maureen and her little ones. It’s planted in a tin pot. The details are utterly enchanting… so many sweet little treasures to find.  Look at the little bark and acorn house. It has marbles and little shells stuck to it for decoration… and a little acorn chimney. And little mushrooms and colored stones growing around it. And, the fairy tutu washing line!!!

And, here’s a fairy garden from Dannyelle. In fact, it’s a whole fairy village… all in little flower pots going up her stairs. What could be more enchanting?

We love this fairy house. Look how the roof is made from pine cones and moss. And, of course, it has been painted so prettily. We love the tire swing and the twig chairs and the little veggie garden.  And we love the story that comes with it. In fact, Teddy has decided that if he finds that he has become a gnome one day, he will live this this very spot.

And, last but not least, here is a wonderful Fairy Garden made in a broken terracotta flower pot with little mossy steps that lead up to the most delightful little stone fairy cottage. A cobble stone path, lined with bright miniature toadstools, leads to the front door of the cottage. And there’s a delightful patio with stick chairs and a stick table, complete with tea cups and a plate of cookies.

Don’t miss the birdbath, the mailbox or the charming nest in the tree… take your time to browse every detail in this magical Fairy Garden.
