Summer of Fae: Fairy Jars

I have no specific instructions for any of these jars, other than you need a jar and a little imagination to fill it....and maybe a little fairy glitter. Fairy glitter is always good.




Happy Friday! Have a lovely weekend!

My Fairy Garden

My own little fairy garden is coming along. Here are the progression photos:

It still needs some filling in here and there but, I like the way it's looking. With the heat starting to rise to over 100 degrees, it's hard to find plants that can tolerate the temperatures. That's why I like having the glass mushrooms and the fairy statue to fill in the spaces. Do you have a fairy garden?

Fairy Magazine

Yes! An entire magazine devoted to fairy and fae! I've not yet subscribed to the magazine but, it's payday so I'm going to start subscribing.  Here is some info about their magazine and here is their link. If you like them on facebook, they publish the most amazing photos of castles, forests, fairy cottages, etc.

Every issue features exquisite photography, original fiction and poetry, travel and destination spotlights, conservation pieces, artist profiles, gardening tips, recipes, home décor, fashion spreads, inspirational service pieces, articles to spark creativity, craft tutorials, and much more—with a dash of faerie magic sprinkled throughout. We strive to inspire, uplift and remind us that there is wonder, charm, and enchantment everywhere! We offer subscriptions and individual issues, both paper and digital, in our webstore, going back to our premier issue from Spring 2005. Please take a look—we'd love for you to join us!

We also offer very unique, carefully curated products for sale, many of them collaborations with artisans whose work we admire.
