It is with great excitement that I announce the winners of the 2014 Fairy Garden Contest.
Boy was it difficult to pick just four (see the finalists here and here). In my mind, you are ALL winners and the greatest prize EVERYONE won was the magical time you had making your Fairy Garden. Thank you for joining in the fun with me and sharing your enchanting gardens with us.
Here are the winners…
I picked Sophie’s kid’s fairy garden for 4th place because I love the bright colors and the kid-made cuteness of it. Toadstools, fairies and a super-sweet Fairy Inn. Colorful rocks, a dragonfly and a tiled garden path. We love it! Congratulations!
For 3rd place, I chose Grace, Rose and Charlotte’s fairy garden. I love all the little fairy details in it… the fairy washing line with pretty petal fairy dresses hanging on it, the rose-covered garden fence and the pretty bejeweled wishing well. But, what caught my eye the most, was the gourd fairy houses in the tall flowers… oh my… they enchant me. We love it. Congratulations!

In 2nd place, I chose Peach Blossom Cottage Fairy Garden because it looks like such a magical place to play. It’s at the end of the garden in a big zinc tub with fairy lights, acorn lanterns and all kinds of fairy enchantments. Seeing these kids playing in their garden makes my heart sing. We love it. Congratulations!

And, the winner is… this magical Fairy Garden that Sandi made for the kids in her neighborhood. I think this is SUCH a magical thing to do, Sandi. I imagine a child stumbling upon this enchanting scene, unawares that such magic awaits? Oh, the feeling of wonder and enchantment it will give them for the rest of their lives.
Everyone, THIS garden proves to children everywhere that EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE.
We LOVE it. Congratulations!

Happy Fairy Gardening,
Blessings and magic,
Oh my goodness!!!! Thank you so much Donni. There is excitement all around here and even some tears of happiness in Mumma’s eyes! :) so excited for the children, as you said… They had so much magic and fun playing through the seasons in this garden and to be able to share that magic with others through this competition is so lovely. Chilli is beside herself with excitement at being one of the winners, she says “thank you so much, I really enjoyed creating and playing in my fairy garden. It was so much fun making the furniture and accessories with Papa and I loved to play with my little baby brother in there as well. I’ve already begun new plantings and a little bit of a ‘spring clean’ in the garden and am looking forward to the magic of the summer ahead. I am also so excited about the Magic Onions voucher, thank you very very much, it’s so wonderful!”
And congratulations to all the other winners, finalists and ALL entrants. Each one of your gardens so very much inspired and delighted us. Thank you to everyone who took the time to share and be part of the magic here. We appreciated seeing all the lovely, creative ideas and play amongst the gardens. Happy autumn to the northerners and spring to the southerners! xxxx all blessings xxxx
Thank you so much for the opportunity to be creative and see everyone’s impressive fairy gardens. The girls and I haven’t stopped since. Looking forward to next year!
