Welcome to my Fairy Gardens

It is a rainy afternoon and there is no place where the rain sounds better than on my front porch. While we are here, you should say hello to the fairies! 
No contemplation is complete without a favorite cup of coffee! I love her peaceful little face. 
The cup of coffee was bought with a teacher appreciation gift card from Hobby Lobby. The candles, bench, banner and fairy we purchased at this amazing little fairy shop in Kansas City when I went home to spoil my mom for Mother's Day. I bought mom several goodies for her fairy garden while there as well! The sea glass rocks were found at Growing Grounds as were several of the plants. Isn't that ladder on my Nell Hill yellow vase too cute?! My dear friend left me Jack Sticks in my mailbox the last week of school. I'm sure it is a game or something but  several of the pieces made it to my fairy gardens. 
This fairy flits around among the rosemary. Her bucket and water can came from Casey's Garden Shop while the flowers were doll hose accessories from Hobby Lobby. There are more of the Jack Stick pieces- a rake, hoe and shovel. 
I'm determined to bring back the ivy that is trying to die. It struggled to make the journey home from Kansas City and started to die as school was finishing up. Be strong little root! 
This vignette makes me smile every day! The old table was rescued from the side of the road. We threw it in the back of the Jeep while cruising around one Sunday afternoon several years ago. The wooden ampersand was found on sale for 75% off when mom and I were shopping for Mother's Day. The lantern we just got at Target as a sort of experiment. They have this whole line of solar power lanterns and I wondered if the work. We got one of the less expensive ones and I love it! It is perfect with these other pieces and then at night gives off the prettiest glow! 
I need a fairy for this pot. I've got my peaceful fairy in her garden, the flitting fairy working on saving her ivy and I need a playful fairy for the bike. So I guess I will have to head to see my mom so we can go to the 'fairy garden meca' together! Dad has to drive because it's super hard to find!
