Bella's Fairy Houses

I picked up 2 of these on clearance last year

painted them purple and pink

bought purple and pink rope

twined it through all the wires

made flowers from buttons and wired them on

cut leaves from flashing for the purple one
cut strips of flashing for the pink one 
glued them all on for the roof,
has lots of sharp edges so I 
then put caulking on so there would
be no sharp edges, filled in the gaps
painted them purple and pink
and added little ladybug buttons

the finished fairy houses

I'm working on a table and chairs and a swing for her tinkerbell fairies to play on.  Got the planter ready this past weekend and should have everything done by next weekend and Bella will be ready to play.

Rhododendron, Peonies & Iris in Full Bloom

After a cold hard winter our peonies are blooming better than ever.  They definitely liked the colder temps this winter.
