woodland creations~

I'm still at it today ... working on little miniature woodland creations for the fairy garden.  I plan on putting it in this spring with my granddaughters ~ if and when our snow ever goes :)

~ a little gnome home ~
made of bark and moss
~ the bird house ... magnified 50% ~

 ~ the door panels are the inside of a milkweed pod with a juniper berry doorknob ~
( to give you an idea of the size )
 ~ a little tree to plant in the yard with a little nest holding 2 eggs ~

~ a rustic chair with a woven seat for comfort ~

 ~ the pretzel stick house ~
( they're really twigs but they remind me of pretzel sticks )

I'm still not sure how this will all turn out ... but I'm having fun making these.

The Grandlove's weren't even here to help today.

I just couldn't hold off and went ahead without them.

You're never too old to play.

Even if it's with yourself ... haha

Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.


  1. I am loving this and can't wait to see it all put together!

  2. We had a GNOME HOUSE in our woods when our girls were growing up. You are right. Never too old to imagine and play. Take care.

  3. Oh my, so clever and creative! :)

  4. you go girl, I just cannot wait to see Bailey's reaction, watching for the woodland fairies. Clever Grandma, you are dear sister. Lovin' these memories you're making for your GrandGirls!!! :)

  5. That has got to be one of the cutest things I've ever seen. Your granddaughters will absolutely love this!

  6. I wish I had the knack to do those things but I don't. Very nice. Not only can you can, cook and make delicious pies but you are talented in the arts to.

  7. You are right about never too old to play. I know the grand loves will have a ball even AFTER some creations.
    You are building memories, not only for yourself but FAMILY.
    You are made of good stuff your self. Slim probably even likes you!!! LOL

    Love from down here.

  8. Very cute, bet the grandloves will love it. Helen

  9. Nope never too old to play. Especially with such cute things.

  10. Oh Mel, these are so darn cute and clever! My ideas are still stuck in my head waiting for the big thaw.
