Here are the winners of the 2012 Fairy Garden Contest. I know I’m a little late with this announcement but can you imagine how difficult it has been for me to pick just a few? We’ve had a huge number of gardens enter this year… 121 Fairy Gardens entered on my blog Contest page and another 32 on Facebook and through emails. And each one is remarkable and unique. You have brought my children and me, and all of those who have tuned in daily to see your gardens, so much joy. Thank you for sharing your beautiful creations with us.
