Pixie Hollow

Yes, I do love a pixie...

Pixie Hollow is almost done, but since the houses are so fragile 
(I will re-do them as they fall apart)

I decided I better show it at it's newest,
even before the flowers and
ferns have had time to grow.

The girls and I decorated fairy houses 
a while back
for all of the fairies we know, 

I have
been told by more than one person
that Pixie Hollow is not for the 
grand girls but
for me....
and I must say there is more truth
in that statement then you know.  

I realized that I have
been decorating the play area 
as if I was going to
play there myself.  

I guess I must still be 
a little girl at heart.

Why is every little girl's favorite color Pink?

not orange....

not green...

...but pink!!

As I was taking a few pictures
of Pixie Hollow
a fairy flew by 
and offered to take this
of the new seating area for me.

A Fairies Eye View...

Some fairies don't like to have 
their houses in the
some just moved 
straight into the tree itself.

The little crocodile holding
the rose was my Grandmother Rose's.

My dad captured it from her yard after
she passed away.
He knew it would be perfect for me some day.

We have fun sparkling things hanging
from the branches...

and comfy pillowy places to sit
on butterfly shaped pillows...

 and little donkeys hiding behind trees...

This guy
was in my Grandma Mary's garden...
and now is in mine.

This little girl size bench was 
in my mom's garden 
as well as the
butterfly and dragonfly hanging on the trellis.

So you see this garden doesn't 
only welcome 
it welcomes memories and holds treasures 
from all the little girls
in my life....
old and young....
but most importantly.....

forever young at heart....

and forever little girls.

Weekend Happenings and a Bunny Spotting

We had a little luck this weekend...
the rain was only a little misty 
so we were able to get 
our patio covers up.

We were getting a little worried 
about the raw wood,
so Kevin painted
the beams to make sure 
they didn't warp and twist.

This is the
so nicknamed
by Madi...
from her own little imagination.

It stuck, so now we will be referring to
this area as the 

Here's the 

and here's the

"maybe we need a 
nickname for this area too...perhaps...
"The Dragons Lair"
or not"

and this could be the dragon

Here's the 
(of the Dragon's Lair)

and the
of the 

(Do you think somehow I can
put little castle-like flags on the corners
and a small turret or two ???)

We even had lunch there after 
Sean and Kevin hooked
up the was soooo nice.

A few other happening....

Grapes have been spotted on the vines.

The garden is completely in and planted
(Doesn't look like much
is happening right now does it?)

and we have finally had a
bunny sighting.

Just in the nic of time 

A little new spring feel on the door. 

and a carrot or two or three...
just to entice a few more bunnies.

We're almost
ready for the Easter
festivities on Sunday...
