We've been enjoying all of the fun fairy gardens out there.

 So I decided it would be fun to put a quick one together for a centerpiece.  I used all things I had on hand...

 This chippy wood tote only looks old.  I bought it at Home Goods a couple of years ago.  I still love it.

 I had a couple of different kinds of moss left over from other projects.  I used both for fun texture.

These glass insulators looked like mushrooms to me.  I put some crumpled book pages inside.

Can you see my little junky fairy in there?

 Just some random bits and pieces glued and tied together.

Her "house" is just a Ball jar with an enamel lid on top.

The plates were just tucked in for "flowers".

I love how it looks out on my rustic PALLET PERCH...

 ...BUT, this is definitely an indoor centerpiece.  I plan to put it on my dining room table...as soon as I finish up a couple more projects that are taking up that space :)

My kids say they are "happy/sad" about the last day of school today.  I know just what they mean.  I remember that feeling, don't you?  Excited for long sunny days without homework...but sad to say goodbye to their teachers and friends.  It's been a great year! 

Happy Summer,
