Tea Cup Fairy Gardens

I love tiny things!

Creating so many tiny little do-dads over the last couple of years has given me quite an assortment of odds and ends. When I decided to make tea cup fairy gardens, drawing from my little stash was so much fun!

#20 Happy Place is the happiest home on earth. And it is mobile! Take your fairies to work with you, your workplace will be happy, happy, happy! And this garden is maintenance emoticon
This small wood house even has a backdoor! Micro moss turf, punched metal flowers, punched metal dragonfly has a guitar string body, hand crafted sign and ladder with tiny mushrooms and a brick path lead up to this happy fairy home mounted on a cork base. Tea Cup: Florentine Fine China "Fantasia"

#20 Happy Place

Tea Cup Fairy Village is home to 7 teeny tiny fairies who love living near one another. Keep this tea cup garden indoors, safe from the weather and nasty little bugs who may try to catch them and carry them away. In the safety of your home, you may catch them sitting on the rocks chatting or climbing their favorite tree. But be very still and quiet because the butterfly is standing guard. He will warn the fairies not to come out if he sees you or hears you.

Materials: Polymer clay houses with distressed metal roofs; natural dry moss; pebbles, wood slices base; punched metal and guitar string butterfly; Fukagawa Arita Pattern 917 Tea Cup.

Etsy Shop: Whimsies and Rugs!

After months of debating, I have finally opened an EtsyShop!

 I am still learning about Etsy - how to use it, navigate through all the options, and  use what they have to offer to help sell some of our items and to find other great shops, too. There are pros and cons to using Etsy, but I decided that I will never know more unless I try it myself. I hope to share more information about my experience with them soon.

Meanwhile, Check it out, and thanks for looking!

Planting and Organizing!

I have been so busy organizing rug fabric, playing around with plants and spending time with my fairy garden, I haven't had time to make anything new. Here's what I have been up to:

I organized all my fabric into "Made to Order" rug kits! Pick a color scheme, size and shape, before you order your toothbrush rugs. Each kit has been bundled together with a note (for me) to remember all of the details. It took a lot of work to get it all done, but all the fabric will be so much easier to find now!

Here are some of my favorites:
Autumn Bouquet


Silver Leaves

Soft Dreams

Sweet Sally
I'm not sure what I love more about making rugs, naming them or the adventure of never really knowing what the finished rug will look like until I am half-way into it. Fun Stuff!

And speaking of fun....Here's an arrangement I made from a few succulents, an old Christmas tree stand and an awesome pitcher type container with holes (I have no idea what it is for). I picked it up in a shop while on an artwalk.
