If you are renting (like we are), then you have to think outside the box when it comes to making your outdoor space look pretty, and do those things that the kids really want. Marisol had been asking for THE LONGEST time for a fairy garden, but keeping in mind that moving house is on the horizon, Mike and I decided to make something that could move with us.
So, while the kids' were visiting their dad one weekend, we set about building Marisol a fairy garden. Because that's apparently what one does on their kid-free weekends. We had already taken her shopping for a few trinkets to put into the garden so she knew that it would be happening ... eventually. We found some very sweet pieces one day when we were hanging out in Old Town Temecula at The Gardener's Cottage and then found even more pieces at Michael's where they have a whole section for fairy gardens, even for holiday's.
