My Fairy Blog Mother

Meet Linda from Life and Linda

First, I want give a big shout out and thank you to Linda at Life and Linda for the chance to win one of her blog make overs. I was one of three lucky winners selected in a random drawing and I chose fresh new touch-ups and a new header. Linda also tweeted TFH with a few tech issues I was having. Now, thanks to Linda and my lucky day of being a winner my blog is humming and happy. Thank you Linda, I love the changes. If any of you are interested in a blog make over or touch-up you can contact Linda here

A Fairy Garden Centerpiece
A Pink Hydrangea in an ice cream cone is perfect for a fairy garden

When I saw this Meri go Round Fairy Wishes Centerpiece set marked down it jumped into my cart! Made to use for birthday parties I decided it would work for a fun project with my fairies.  I put it away and forgot about it and while I was organizing the pantry I pulled it out. I didn't want to store it again so I decided to set it up. I added plants and collectible fairies for a fun and sweet centerpiece to enjoy in the breakfast area of my kitchen  

Made from heavy cardboard, with magnets

 Slots and letters make for easy assembly

Fairies are from The Fairy Collection

Plants make the garden and trees

Such fun, fairies and flowers. Every time I look at  this I smile and I think I saw the fairies smile back! Hope you enjoyed my fairy centerpiece. Thanks for your visit, please leave a comment, it's the only way I know you stopped in.

Leaving you with a happy feeling, click on the video
