Return of the Garden Fairies

After a long winter, the garden fairies have
returned to brighten our garden and create
their magic.

They inhabit every nook and cranny in our garden
and bring such delight to me and to the little ones.

We have them living in metal chairs,

 and in planters on the fence,

and in their own dedicated garden.  Of course, they
decided there wasn't enough room for them just in
the garden, so every year they continue to spread out.

But we don't mind - they are welcome everywhere.

They beautify the spaces of our garden

and plant crops.

They even invite us over for treats sometimes.
Fairies create magic wherever they decide to land.


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. So Nice ....like the elf on the first picture....love from me Ria x ❤️

  2. What a sweet tradition! I'll be the grandchildren look forward to the appearance of the elves every spring.

  3. Your fairies are so sweet and I know the little ones enjoy them. You have such a fun collection. I love the swing and stone garden path, adorable. I have a few I set-up in a large container on our veranda. I haven’t added any new ones in a while so this has inspired me...

  4. How much fun!! Just like playing with dolls! How do you keep the littles from touching or do you let them?

  5. Fairies do create magic wherever they decide to land! I'm sure your little ones love seeing them. I remember my grandmother's sweet garden ornaments very well :-)

  6. I want to make a fairy garden. Our tiny little library has been featuring fairy gardens and fairy gardening books to encourage patrons to make them. Yours are fabulous!!!

  7. Love that tradition and love the fairies!!! Have a great week, Jackie.
