Irish Fairy Garden

A friend of mine gave me an old suitcase after she saw the dog bed I made out of an old suitcase.  Wasn't sure what I'd do with it but then Pinterest managed to present an idea.  

I turned this into a miniature Celtic fairy garden.  My original idea of turning a pot into a rock cottage with a "thatched" roof went horribly wrong. I'm still trying to get the Gorilla Glue off my hands. 

The Befores

The inspiration

The disaster
Miniature standing stones

Final touch some mini rocks and sheep:

Early Morning Knitting

The best part of the day...having very early morning breakfast and tea on the back deck and knitting a little bit before hitting the ground running :)  Still plugging along on my sock yarn blanket.

Summer Gardening

I've had the old window for years. When I saw this idea on Pinterest, I thought I'd give it a shot.  Hoping the lavender comes in nice and full. I have my usual flip flop flower pots on the back deck and containers of herbs along the deck rails.  Love the smell of lavender, basil and rosemary out there :). Finally summer!!!
