What Do You Think?


There it was, in the distance, but I didn't say a word.


As she inched closer, she began to lean in...
as if in disbelief.



When I watched her come and get her Dad and Mom, I knew it was a hit...:)




When my son, DIL and Mia came out for a visit, I couldn't wait to see Mia's reaction.  After examining it closely with her parents, she said, "Nana, want to enter a Fairy Gardening Contest with me this year?"  

She loved every square inch of this place including the tools, the "secret door" and the wood pile (not pictured).  Nestled at the base of the gnarly roots, I not only transplanted some mosses but also planted a few flowers and seeds to keep him (and me) busy!
Mia loved it and that made Nana very, very happy!



So, what do you think?
Any suggestions for a name for the smiling old fellow?

Sharing simple happiness with you and those at

Looks wonderful! I like the little doors and the tree root.

my favorite part of it all is that gnarled tree.. is that the root? i love it.. i can imagine they joy in the eyes of a little girl. i loved doll houses when i was young and this is kind of the same thing.
Old man In the Garden is my name

Now that's a really cute fairy garden! What a sweet spot to place it too. Sorry, I'm coming up blank with a name for your gnome.

Please let Mia name the garden gnome. What a precious idea for you to do that! I must admit that I was looking for wildlife in your first shot. But the fairy dwelling is so cute! Linda@Wetcreek Blog

What an adorable fairy garden! At first glimpse I wasn't sure what to expect. Grandma rocks!

Liz @ Sit With Me In My Garden said...

It's so intriguing! I expect a critter to come out of the openings of the trunk! I saw a blog that ran a contest for a name for a Gnome- there were some fun offerings. I'll include the link- http://www.pkmeco.com/familyblog/2007/06/name-our-gnome.html

What a glorious thing you did for Mia!! Heck, I'd think it was glorious if done for me! As for a name....hmmm....how about....Henry.

Enchanting! You should name this enchanting world "At Your Service, Princess Mia" and the little happy fellow, hmmm... how about Papa Jolly?

Ann said...

I'm horrible at coming up with names for things but I love what you did with the fairy garden. It looks awesome.

A good job on the fairy garden grandma - your Mia and ours are loving the fantasy of fairies we've created.

I had to look up Mia's garden since you commented about it on my blog. I missed this post. I LOVE this fairy garden! Adorable! Lucky Mia.
