fairy glen for your backyard

Ok this morning I skipped my morning practice and headed online. I know... my bad. But well, yesterday I was up WAY too early and today I was feeling the sleep deprivation. Whatever, even a girl with a daily practice skips a day now and then...

And my oh my, am I ever glad that I did because it gave me some time to catch up on my google reader!

Need I say more?

No wait? You want better details and links? Here goes:


Centsational Girl


On Centsational Girl's blog, she has a post on creating these glowing globes for your back yard out of 2nd hand light shades and white holiday lights.

She gives other ideas on how to use the globes, namely for Christmas decoration and in and about your home, which are all lovely alternatives. I liked the idea that she tries to use flea market/2nd hand store goods. A bit of up-cycling goes a lont way!


Embracing My Goddess-Self
 But when I saw Tereza's post on her fairy garden...

Well, what can I say... I was immediately sold and started contemplated the possibilities for pairing the 2 ideas together to create a magical fairy glen.

Now the question that remains is this... can I sell the idea to my husband for our new home?

Oh yeah, did I mention that we just signed for a house and it's being built, which means that I have an ENTIRE year to obsess about home decor ideas?

Yeah... maybe that's why I woke up so early yesterday: I was too EXCITED!

  7. What a cute idea for the fairy garden! I'm always finding those solar powered yard lights at garage sales. Maybe those would work just as well, although be less cute. Congrats on your new house!

  9. Absolutely magical. I don't have a yard, but I might have to get extra creative and make a home for the Fae in my terrace ;-)

    P.S. You have an award at Pagan Culture!
