Anticipating Influx of Spring Faeries

 In Southern CA. with the mild Winters,esp in Rancho Cucamunga, We need to get Our gardens ready now.

I have cleaned out their homes,swept,washed and rearranged their yards.

 I'm surprising  them with new plants they have previous requested.They wanted several they could extract water from,so I included more succulents.

They also wanted more color so I hope these wildflowers I'm keeping warm will be here soon enough.
I still have time to paint their old main gathering place-with the frog on top.I also want to surprise them with some beautiful extra glimmer shimmer and shine too before their arrival date.They have always told Me how much they appreciate their original grape vine from their large home before we downsized. They've expressed how much they love all the birds,so feeders of all types are in place.
While I'm waiting I'm  busy making several Valentine tags and ATCs. Here's just a few.Trying to explain to My Husband what His long time lover and Valentine is up to in Her later years.His"with it" young wife,chef to His little girls, shopper of important items for family life is gone.His new lover yes is so different yet the same.It's hard to explain to a man.It all just makes Him laugh  and happy for Me.

My newest Valentine-Maddie Kaye
I do know My priorities though.She will learn all about faeries,gnomes,brownies. Of Course last but NOT LEAST and most important I've been very busy teaching Her GOD IS GOOD.....JESUS LOVES HER.... ect ect ect. LOVE and HUGS-Denise       Partying with Valentine Party Over at Bargain Decorating.Also What to do weekend party at Craft's a la Mode. Make it pretty Monday party by Kathy is on My sidebar, I'm also joining Her blog at Dedicated House.Please jump on over to Her party too.

Auntie Denise, you saved the best for last. "The first shall be last and the last shall be first".

I think the Faeries are going to love their new homes and gardens.

It's too cold to think about outdoor planting but we are making a list of what we want to plant - lilacs, Lily-of-the-Valley, Johnny Jump-ups, ♫ these are a few of our favorite things ♫

Heaps of Hugs
Prudence ♥

Hi Denise, I love the redecorating you have done and continue for the fairies in your garden. Your tags are darling and your sweetest Valentine is a bundle of cuteness.

Enjoy the weekend and thank you for stopping by to the party.
Blessings and Hugs

My faerie garden is buried under 2 ft. of snow! I can't wait to see spring. The valentine's look sweet. Your little Maddie Kaye is adorable. That's how my middle name is spelled too!

Good morning Denise, I'm thinking about my fairies and gnomes these days and how I'll surprise them this year when I place a new play ground in the garden for them. I enjoyed your pampering today and like your wee little plants you have added. Perhaps a water bottle and spray them a couple of shots then cover them in the sun for a couple of hours to pirspire, sounds like a sauna and fun,

Hello there sweet Denise! Fairies, garden gnomes and creatures...everyone is getting their Valentines ready to distribute! teeheheehhe....oh, how my garden is buried under so much snow, but I know that the day will come when we can see our moss again and feel the summer breeze. Thank you my friend, for coming to visit. May LOVE overflow from your life! Anita

Denise I am loving your post today. I so want to make a faerie garden in my yard. Your pictures are so inspiring to help me get started. I had everything ready to start an indoor faerie garden except the inspiration. Now I feel inspired! Thank you!

Your little Maddie Kaye is the sweetest Valentine of all!!

Diane said...

So nice to see "green" things! We won't see that for a good couple of months yet. Your ATCS are cute!

Lady Linda said...

Hi Denise...we have had a return to winter and are still under snow and ice! I haven't been out of the house since last Thursday.
Love your tags...you are so talented.
Love your thoughts about your hubby...I can relate.

We will not be seeing any signs of Spring here for some time especially with well over a foot of snow on the ground!


One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
