The past two days have been magical around here! The weather has been beautiful, warm, and sunny. And because of that, my empty pots are just begging to be filled with flowers.

I hit up a few local greenhouses this weekend for both some Mother’s Day and personal shopping. My goal was to finish a little fairy garden I started a couple weeks ago.

So, I’m sure you remember this cage of sorts I found when I went antiquing. Well, inspired by all the miniature gardens I’ve been seeing floating around Pinterest, I decided I need a little fairy garden of my own.

After a little shopping and a little work, this abandoned cage is now home to a different type of creature.

Without further adieu, I give you my Enchanted Fairy Garden.

Let’s take a peek inside…

You’ll find fairies watching…

Mini birdhouses and gathered acorns.

Ivy, bacopa, and lemon thyme weave around corners.

While stone paths guide you around fences.

Rusty metal dragonflies flutter above…

…and below.

In my enchanted fairy garden the sun always shines.

It’s a place where arbors welcome visitors,

and benches make them stay.

Thanks so much for visiting my little mini garden.

You are welcome any time!

Now if I could just find where they make little mini glasses of sangria.


Exciting things are happening next week on Inspired by Charm!!

Stay tuned for more details.

    This is truly my favorite fairy garden that I’ve seen. Mine is the regular old in the milk tub kind and yours is COMPLETELY unique!

    This is the most charming idea, I think it’s lovely and only wish I were small enough to sit on the bench inside. Very creative!

    Very Cute. Etsy has a few artists who do amazing doll house miniatures that work great for fairies too. I have seen sangria there before 🙂 I would love little things like that but critters roam our garden under the tree.

    Leave it to you to take fairy gardens to a whole new level…..especially with the mini-sangria cups…I have no doubt you’ll find some! LOL! Love it all! I was going to mow today but maybe I’ll have to make a fairy garden instead…you’ve got me going now!

    This is indeed magical! Love it! I also had wondered what you would do with the cage. I knew it would be something fabulous but never imagined a fairy garden. It looks so lovely and peaceful in there. Your imagination and creativity never cease to amaze me!

    I too love to create fairy gardens. I am in my “zen” place when I do. I created one last weekend that’s on my blog. Getting ready to do another in an old wash tub. Yours is so unique!
