concrete planter for fairy garden via seejaneblogWith temperatures consistently in the sixties here in Utah, Sela and I spent six hours playing in the fairy gardens yesterday. It was time to take down the festive Christmas items and be a little creative…

We decided to go with a woodland theme this time, probaby my favorite. And with a bundle of branches and some hot glue we made a homemade swinging bridge and ladder:

christmas in the fairy garden!

November 16, 2014


Last weekend we had what is probably our last few days of warmish fall weather, so Sela and I spent most of our Saturday outdoors. We walked around our home snipping sticks and leaves off bushes to use in her fairy garden. Then we decked the gardens for christmas!

This is without question, my favorite toy/kid activity that our family has engaged in over the years. Thomas the train, dinosaurs, board games, Barbie, dolls, blocks, all the phases we have lived through in almost seventeen years of parenting – this is my favorite. I enjoy it ever bit as much as Sela does!





We have been adding to our fairy garden collection for over a year now –

flamingo birthday party via seejaneblog

Our baby girl turns EIGHT today. It has been the fastest eight years of my life. Sela thinks she has waited f-o-r-e-v-e-r to be eight. Like: we started talking about this flamingo party last SPRING. She was already putting in her request for another doll party. And deep inside as much as I love observing her love of all things doll – I did not feel like planning another doll party. So, as we continued to discuss ideas I tried to think of the most pink-girly-things that would intrigue her… sans barbies, etc. – when the flamingo idea came to mind! At this time, I hadn’t seen anything new or trendy with flamingos.
