You have probably already seen the Fairy Garden in the old birdbath….but if you haven’t…
Well I was at Tonkadale Nursery the other day….and I was lusting after the Fairy Houses….
I found the perfect one….
It even has a little moss growing on it…
And a little root extension….
I was ready to get started…
I had an old cocoa mat….and thought that would work…..
Mr. S: “that looks like a really bad toupee!”
Me: “Well. do you have a better idea?”
Mr. S.: “Can this wait until later? I just got home!”
a little later……
Mr. S: “Okay…how big does this thing need to be? What angle do you want for the roof? Have you measured the stump? I can cut some of those wood blinds and you can attach them like shingles”
Me: “Well….no….I thought I could just eyeball it.”
Mr. S: “sigh…..I’ll go get the tape measure.”
Goody Goody….it was time to use the power tools…
Mr. S ran the saw….
Mr. S ran the tape measure…
Mr. S did the math
I did the power
I love me my power stapler/nailer!
It worked perfectly….
Maybe the wine was inspirational….
The solution was in the wood pile…..
I could just attach some pieces of bark to a piece of log that was split to have a peak…
Like a roof!
