The Terra Cotta Fairy Garden

By |July 24th, 2011|

After creating our first Picket Fence Fairy Garden, we knew immediately that we’d have to build another.  Our first clue was when I literally had to drag my three-year-old away from it to go the park that day.  Our second clue was when she wanted to sleep outside in the hopes of catching a glimpse of her fairy.
