I found a fairy at the Goodwill for 99 cents and that spurred me to get busy and make a fairy garden as I had been planning to. I
went to Michael`s and bought a bird house and painted it as her house, popsicle sticks for a fence, a dog pet from the Dollar
store for $1, had a container on hand, bought a few plants, and dug up some moss from my yard, was a very inexpensive
thing to put together, and fun! I was going to add a small solar light but decided not to because I liked it as is and secondly
put it under a tree for protection from a hard rain so it would not get enough sun for a solar light.

You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because they have roses!

That's really cute, Linda! That's another project on my to-do list... I grew some birdhouse gourds last year and want to make one into a "house," and I certainly have plenty of moss to add for decoration. Maybe one of these days I'll actually get around to doing it Hilarious!

Thanks for the link! On another note, were you ever a member on a Yahoo group called Womenwanttogab? Your screen name sounds
so familiar to me!
