Miniature Accessories

By |July 24th, 2011|

I’m having so much fun creating mini, magical little furniture for our fairy gardens.  And in case you get the “Fairy Garden Bug” like I have, I’ve listed all my mini accessory ideas in a central location for easy reference.

Enjoy!

The Picket Fence Fairy Garden

By |July 24th, 2011|

The trash dump fairy has struck again – literally, her biggest stroke of genius to date.  You see, as I was driving home the other night, I noticed that one of my neighbors had put a worn out, splintered, spider weby planter out on the curb.  But all that grubbiness couldn’t hide the cuteness hidden beneath.  In fact, it even added to it a bit, for the chippiness of the paint on the old wood was exactly my style.

The moment I laid eyes on this little beauty, my mind conjured images of tiny sprites frolicking through the moss and playing among some small, rustic, handmade furniture.  You see, my daughter is absolutely enchanted with fairies.  Ok… I am, too.  So what better way to attract these magical little beings (and provide hours of outdoor fun for my little one), than to offer them their own little haven on our patio?

Give Modern Bottles a Vintage Twist

By |June 25th, 2011|

Recently I made some shell-covered vintage bottles for my mom.  We’d been admiring the expensive versions in the beachy boutiques for quite some time, and I could tell how much she wanted them.  However, I knew I could create my own versions that were just as beautiful on the cheap.

Beachy Chic Side Table

By |June 18th, 2011|

Do you ever find yourself walking by a piece of furniture, only to turn back and stare when it squeals like a girlfriend who just got engaged softly calls out to you?  Well, that happens to me all the time.  Only the pieces that I’m notoriously attracted to are usually thousands of dollars in chic beachside boutiques.  Or historical family heirlooms (read: not for sale) that have been beaten to a beautifully weathered pulp.

I’m not satisfied with either of these options, which means I’ve got to get creative.

Que rolling up of sleeves and rubbing together of hands as I cackle evilly.  (I know, I’m weird.  I can’t help it.)
