First came the cement drawer, which I bought over a year ago off the sale rack at Hobby Lobby. Then came the baby fairy, which was suppose to be for my granddaughter. The baby was bigger than the fairies in my first fairy garden! It was just to big for her fairy garden, so I kept baby fairy and bought her another fairy. That is just what Grami's do! The drawer, the baby fairy, the hedgehog, a left over little house from a long-ago swag, moss and a variegated mini Ficus and I was ready to make a mini fairy garden. (Of note - I bought the baby fairy and hedgehog from My Fairy Gardens.)
I then planted the miniature Ficus, which I found at a greenhouse/nursery in Topeka, KS. Most greenhouses are now caring miniature plants, you can also order them from different sites on the web, (Glasshouse Works) this is one I have looked at but never ordered any plants from as yet. The Carolina Wren's bird nest I found in our Japanese Maple Tree, it was perfect in the fairy garden.
