Winter Festival

Queen AmberLynn and her daughter Jezelle have returned from their tour of other fairy communities. Many fairies have gathered to welcome them home.

The two are quite pleased with the festive decorations adorning the Queen's Throne area.

Happy the Snowman, Geraldine and Gerald (L to R) help to add more presents under the tree.

Fairies have begun to exchange their presents. Samm and Tink are ready to open theirs, Rose is watching the train go round the tree, the younger fairies are playing in the snow and Grace is hiding amongst the ferns, watching everyone enjoying the celebration.

Violet and Roselynn are ready to munch on the Gingerbread house they made, but not before offering some to the rest of the community.


Winter Festival Prep

Before decorating for the Winter Festival the fairies cleaned up the Queen's Courtyard, in anticipation of her return.

The Tree of Wisdom looks at the new park area, full of colorful decorations.

A train set circles around the shiny Christmas tree with presents strewn about.

Two of the Fairy Council members, Diana (on the left) and Alvina, introduce the community to their new winter guests. Geraldine (left) and Happy the Snowman wave to the crowd while Gerald sniffs around, exploring the winter scene.
The winter guests enjoy each others company while the rest of the community continues to make final preparations for the Festival.


Swinging In The New Year

Ever since the fairies showed up in my garden, the lemons on my lemon tree have grown bigger and bigger. They're almost the size of my head! In the background you can see the origins of my fairy garden.

Here is Myleene. She grabbed my attention this morning while I was making my way through the garden and asked me to take a video of her, 'swinging' in the new year. I suppose all the other fairies were still resting from the Winter Festival (photos to be posted soon).

Teapot Glen

Just in time for Winter, the fairy community pulled together and managed to erect Teapot Glen for the newest arrivals; Grace, Iris, Petunia, Roselynn and Violet. I was able to take a few pictures of them by their respective homes.

There was concern that Petunia might be too young to live alone so Missy the Rabbit is going to be her housemate. This worked out well since they've already become close friends.

The fairy council took notice of Grace's shy demeanor and decided that her house should be placed furthest in Teapot Glen. The community is confident that Grace will socialize more as she becomes more comfortable with her new surroundings.

Iris enjoys the front porch of her new, brick home.

Violet and Roselynn were given the opportunity to live together in this quaint thatch-roof cottage. After touring their home, they decided to relax outside with some pumpkin chai tea, discussing what they've heard about the upcoming plans planned for the Winter Festival.
Here is an overhead shot of the majority of Teapot Glen.


New Arrivals - December

My best friend, June, called me earlier this month with a request.

"I found five little fairies who have no place to call home. Do you think you have room in your Fairy Garden for them? They are so sweet and would be very grateful." I replied "Of course! there is always room in Grandma's Fairy Garden for new faces! I'll tell the other fairies, they will be so happy."

I drove down to Brea to pick up the new arrivals while the garden was abuzz with activity and excitement. There was also a meeting held while I was gone regarding where the new arrivals would stay and it was decided that construction on a new town would begin very soon.

Violet and Roselynn (L to R) - These two fairies were best of friends from the beginning so for them, the move was a bit easier because they have each other.

Grace is a sweet, gentle fairy who is very shy. She is having a difficult time coming out of her shell so she has spent most her time here so far hiding in the fern.

Iris is a sweet little child, outgoing and friendly. With a personality like this, she has had no trouble at all fitting in from the get go.

Petunia is the cutest little thing you have ever seen and the youngest of the new arrivals. She loves playing with all the other fairies and is excited to call this her new home.
