via Photo Challenge: A Good Match
Ben Huberman on the Daily Post challenged his readers to come up with a “good match.” Mine is a bottle arrangement I made in my bedroom. I’m crazy for bottles, and I love colors, so this is a perfect decor statement for me. My OCD kicks in from time-to-time and makes me rearrange the locations of the bottles within the arrangement, but that makes me happy, too.
Here’s how they look:
Can you tell my tastes fall somewhere between Gypsy, Bohemian, dumpster-diving?
I have been in love with these sweet little gardens since I began seeing them on Pinterest a few years ago. I love to make things like this with my granddaughter, but we just have not gotten around to this project. I think maybe this summer we might make a fairy garden on the covered porch so it will be protected, because I can’t imagine letting one get damaged in any way.
Having never really been into miniatures, I can’t figure out what the allure of these little neighborhoods is for me, but for me they really have an intrinsic charm.
It seems they can be whimsical or downright intricate, both of which are just fine with this girl! And there are variations on the “broken pot” look.
And they can be a themed garden, like this farm miniature:
You can even get the, as we say in the South, store-bought versions, but for my money, that’s like cheating and not nearly as much fun.
If you have made a fairy garden, please share it here. If my granddaughter and I get one made, we’ll certainly share our project.
I feel a bit happier just thinking about these tiny treasures. Hope they brought a smile to your face, too!
