A tea house for fairies

The May/June issue of the magazine I edit, Newnan-Coweta Magazine, made its way to the printer last week, meaning that the deadline rush is over and I have more time for fun things like gardening and tea time! One of the stories in our upcoming issue is about a local woman who has placed numerous fairy houses throughout her garden. Naturally, I was inspired to think about adding a "tea house" for the fairies to my own landscape. When I saw this teapot for $4 at an antique store on Saturday, I knew immediately what I would do with it!

From the happy little bird perched on top ...

... to the watering can for fairy gardeners ...

... and the tiny little front door, I knew this was *just* what I needed!

Butterflies are welcome too, of course.

And the spacious opening at back means the fairies won't have any problem moving their furniture inside.

So, here's the fairy tea house at its new location at the base of a mossy tree. (Fairy landscaping plans are still being developed.) If you happen to know of any fairies looking for a new home in the South, tell 'em we're open for business!

Hi Angela
Isn't that the cutest little teapot. I'm sure the fairies in your garden will be investigating it.
Good find.

I love fairy gardens. I have a very neglected fairy garden at my house but I plan to help the fairies out & get it cleaned up for summer.
