Merely Me's idea of distracting ourselves from depression made me think of this fairy garden I started last year with some "buildings" I found in a catalog and little animal and fairy figurines discovered here and there, including Target. It's hard to see the details here, I know, but there are chickens, a lamb, a cow, a horse, a gnome, a fairy riding a horse while holding a baby, as well as some furnishings like a bench and wheelbarrow. My husband helped me by putting up the circular wall around it and filling it with dirt, pea gravel and moss. Today I bought a few more things to try to add some color to it which aren't in this picture. Anyway, it reminds me of something medieval and magical and makes me smile when I see it from our porch window.
