My sweet friend Shamira of SmilingNotes published a very inspiring post about 50 Fun Summer Activities. One of her ideas was building a fairy garden. I love fairies and I already have a circle of fairies around my patio.
But I her suggestion reminded me of gifting them. I love the atmosphere in my garden. It is like an island of peace and my refuge. Many years ago I made gem stone trees like this one:
There are still a lot of different stones left. I went into my craft box and mixed some of those little gem stones together.
I dug a hole next to each figurine:
I thanked the fairies for their support, protection, and loving care and for letting me create and work in this place. I had some gem stones left and placed them next to my beloved willow. I thanked the willow fairy for taking such good care of the tree which means so much to me.
In the second picture, you can see my curious tortoise coming over to check what I was doing. Sorry, Hercules, all done!
I enjoyed doing this and hope the fairies are pleased.
In Love and Light
