Fairy Gardens – ‘Tend Like

My girls love playing pretend.  It is so fun to sit back and secretly listen to their stories.  My favorite part is hearing how they get each other into the story.  “Prank” is my favorite introduction.  I’m not sure if this is a combination of “tend like” and “let’s pretend” but it’s the cutest either way.

One of their obsessions may or may not be my fault.  I remember as a little girl thinking that little tiny things were just adorable.  That’s why we like kittens and puppies, right?

I introduced them to the idea of fairy gardens back in the fall.  They were mesmerized when I showed them pictures.  I was too!  What neat, neat setups some creative people have made.  A quick google for fairy garden images will keep you intrigued for hours if you let it.  I found this post from Today to be really inspiring.

The girls got a fairy garden set for Valentine’s Day.  I found some sets at the local Wal-mart on clearance back in the fall.  They have really gotten a lot of play time around here.  I just had to snap this picture of their creation on the back patio.
