Fairy Garden Competition

I got home so late last night that I had to bring in our fairy garden that we just completed last weekend to take pictures for the Fairy Garden Competition

This is the overall view of the garden

This is my favorite part.

My cute little stepdaughter made the house and the fancy four poster sea shell bed with flower canopy and fancy pillow as well as the squigley pipe cleaner plants

This homestead is linked to a private bathroom with this bridge

Our Fairies Welcome sign made with branches, bark, glitter glue and hot glue gun.

Here is a good view of the bathroom compete with lighting.

This is a note that "S" wrote to the fairies with another view of the bridge leading to the bathroom and if you look closely a little clothes line is behind the bridge so the fairies can do laundry but there are no clothes hanging today (it was raining).

The cute note basically says that she has always believed in them and that there is no need to worry we will not harm them so to enjoy the garden in peace and quiet and take full advantage of the amenities.

This is the bathtub we made with a sea shell hidden behind some thyme.

 The competition ends today but I recommend everyone who loves fairies make a fairy garden. It was an escape and a pleasure to work with my extremely enthusiastic adorable stepdaughter. We had fun and have plans for many more to come to see more incredible fairy gardens go here.

Weddings and things

I am planning a party so I have been looking up events and I am just finding the most gorgeous wedding pictures. So I decided to share because the color combinations are so beautiful and the original ideas can be applied to other things.

This is the cake in the movie called Rachel Getting Married the set decorators for this movie were amazing. The wedding scenes were gorgeous and inspiring and there was a lot to take away from the movie whether you're having a wedding or another event. The cake is phenomenal I just wonder was it edible or made out of cardboard?

I also found these bouquets...

I love the bromeliads in this bouquet.

and these bubble pictures

Here's another cake that I love

I found this rainbow wedding dress

and this pretty dress

and these pretty dresses and accessories for weddings or not

These outdoor festive looking dining

Finally last but not least check out Junk Gypsy Co.'s blog They did Miranda Lambert's wedding which is just full of ideas on why to keep your grandmother's old lamps and tables and what to do with all of those tin cans I've been waiting to "upcycle". This is the caravan they travel in I couldn't resist adding it because I LOVE it.

Here are my favorite pictures but for more go to blog link above
