  12. What fun- thanks for hosting!

  13. Hello,
    My girls are working on a fairy garden and would like to enter your contest. I do not have a blog and I don’t use facebook. Is there another way I can enter?

    • Hi Tara. I’m so glad you and your girls are enjoying your fairy garden. If you’d like to email me photos, I’ll add you guys to the contest that way.
      <3 Donni

      • Thank you! We are almost done….we had a wishing well failure, so as soon as we get it fixed , I will get some photos:)

  14. I just posted pics of my garden for the contest and the thumbnail on your site didn’t work for me. It’s a Google logo. Is there any way I can change it?

    • Hi Jodie,
      Sorry you had trouble. I’ve deleted the entry so that you can try again. If you have trouble again, send me a link to your blog and I’ll try to see if I can enter it on my end. SO looking forward to seeing your magical garden.
      Blessings and magic,

  15. These are so cute–so glad you provided a link-up, too! I don’t have anything to add (have yet to make a first fairy garden), but would love it if you could come link up to Mom’s Library to inspire my readers! Here’s the link; hope I see you there! http://www.morefunmom.com/2013/05/super-fast-fun-activities-moms-library.html

  16. I think I have it done now … lol … the picture just showed up…

    WE LOVE YOUR FB SITE AND Fairy Garden Contest. The ideas from your posts and friends entries are contagious. After entering your contest for the first time last year we were inspried to CREATE and Educate! We started volunteering our hours through our University of IL Extension Master Gardening Speakers Bureau to give a Power Point Program we made titled Making Gardening “Fairy” Much Fun to the public-our local Garden Clubs, Libraries, Community College’s and High School’s Continuing Education classes along with other Master Gardener County Groups. The fairies have 6 new homes in our local preschool classroom window wells and the students write to the fairies daily. (We had to get a bigger mailbox! Ha!) After our most recent spring break we had one 4 year old student request that we make a ZIP LINE for the fairies home. :) We talk about your contest each time we give our program and include a link to your site that we pass out. We also developed a new facebook page dedicated to Fairy Gardens and your Contest. Thank You for all your hard work.

    • The magic is utterly contagious, isn’t it!!! And, to be honest, I love it all as much as my kids do :-)
      Thank you so much for sharing the fun.
      Love Donni

  18. Hi, guys! I joined since I like the concept. My blog is about a fairy in the garden not a fairy garden. I believe it is similar since a fairy in the garden lives in the garden of fairies so I joined.

    Thanks to all, I had fun reading

  19. SO excited to be entering this contest for the first time! I have always wanted to enter. What lovely submissions are already here! All this fairy goodness takes my breath away….:)

  20. just discovered this wonderful blog and I wish to subscribe…only when I enter my email in the ‘get new posts by email’ box it says that email subscriptions are not enabled – thought I’d let you know since you probably don’t have that box just for show!

    • Hi Jenn…
      I’m so sorry ~ I’ve been trying to figure that one out for a while with no luck. Some people get it fine, others get the message you got?? I don’t know how to fix it. So sorry! Have you ‘liked’ my Facebook Page – https://www.facebook.com/MagicOnions – I post all of my new posts on my Facebook page ~ you could keep up to date with new posts that way.
      Blessings and magic,

    is there any way possible that I could send pics to enter the contest via email? That is pretty much the only way I can say for sure that I know how to share/send something…and be confident that it made it where it was suppose to. I am pretty new at all of this but would love to enter. thank you

    • Hi Melanie,
      Yes, I’d love to see your fairy garden :-)
      You can send your photos to donni(at)themagiconions.com and I’ll add them to the other email entries I have received.
      Glad you’ve had fun making it.
      Blessings and magic,

    My son and I entered the contest a few days ago through my Facebook page (we are entry 137). When I first posted it the link worked fine but now seems to be having issues. Is it just on my end or do I need to re-enter? Thanks :)

    • Hi Bobi Jean,
      Your link is working perfectly for me. Oh my… I LOVE your fairy garden. The fence around it is super cute and the little gate is brilliant. As for the stump home with the mossy roof and magical stepping stones!!!!! Seriously enchanting. I want to move right in :-)
      Blessings and magic,

  23. Hi Donni and thanks for all the inspiration you offer through your blog and Pinterest. I am new to fairy gardening but thought I would enter your great contest anyway as I love to share ideas. Wow, such amazing wee gardens in the contest so far! I could never choose a favourite! Keep the inspiration flowing.

  24. P.S. Greetings again from New Zealand. I forgot to add that I have a few new accessory pics on my blog http://elowezil.blogspot.com if you’d like to have a look. I entered 3 of my gardens because I couldn’t see if there were any limits on entries! LOL

  25. I can’t believe I am just finding your blog now. We have been making fairy gardens for years now and I see you have too! So fun to have a contest for them, they are magical.

  26. Muito lindo tudo isso, obrigada!
