Today at lunch I was scrolling through my Pinterest feed and ran across a Fairy Garden:
So, I did a search, I was wondering how many people actually did Fairy Gardens.
Apparently a lot of people! You can even get a Fairy Garden Camper.
Or a Pirate Fairy Garden House!
And this is all very cute – but I have to wonder…
HAS EVERYONE LOST THEIR MINDS? Fairy’s are not nice creatures! Fairy’s are known for mischief, and malice and the stories about “wee people” are always ones of how to survive an encounter! What ever you do, don’t eat the food!! If you eat food offered by a fairy, then they will enslave you and you can never return to your life.
Fortunately, you can defeat a fairy if you are close to being ensnared. If you spill salt, a fairy must stop and count each granule, thus giving you time to escape.
I’m not sure what type of people are inviting fairies to move into their yard, but I can tell you – it’s not me!

When I studied in Ireland, I learned about fairies. Fairies are definitely not to be trifled with. They steal babies.
Yes!!! These people need to stop building fairy gardens!! Keep them in Ireland!!! Lol! 🙂
Hahjahahahahaha!! Now that’s brilliant!!
Feel free to get that trending.
But the plants put together with little things are adorable and something real to look at and the people who have them call it a fairy garden because its a small person size but the USA doesnt have any real fairies so maybe in Ireland you wouldn’t want a fairy garden if u have a fairy baby stealing problem… Maybe it’s immigration laws but maybe because we like to destroy nature to build banks and such, those lil trouble makers wont migrate here. If they did, the government would probably stuff them on some reservation in the middle of no where.
Do fairies even live in Kansas? It’s so dry and hot in the summer and still cold though not as snowy in the winter ❄️🥶 as it used to be.
I think that people love fairy gardens because they appeal to their inner child – the one that loved to play with dollhouses and that tiny furniture. I would be totally open to having a fairy garden – but not for fairies. I would invite pixies to live there instead. Pixies are thought to be pretty much harmless, mischievous, and attractively childlike. According to lore, fairies are their enemies – so having pixies living in your garden would actually be a good thing!
Okay, I could do a pixie garden! I’ll take kind spirits – but I’m still afraid that a fairy would move in! 🙂
Too cute! Love the Camper Fairy House! Thanks you for sharing at Whatever Wednesday on Thank You Honey! Hope to see you again next week!
I have been wondering about the camper van house and how to make one
Love how you worked Supernatural so seamlessly into this ! I was still trying to recover from the picture of the fairy campe.
I know, the fairy camper was so cute and scared me at the same time! 🙂
Blame Disney for everyone thinking fairies are wonderful. I really have to get back into Supernatural. I can’t remember where I left off. I remember Sam coming back and being evil. I remember Dean leaving his gf. I think that was Season 6, but I don’t remember much after that. In your expert opinion, where should I pick up?
Season 6 sounds about right! I would have to check to be sure.
And you are right, Disney is to blame! Lol.
I’ve heard a little about this but overall imagine fairies being so nice and sweet. And we actually had little fairy houses in our old house in the backyard…and I’ll admit I got a little lost in the aisle at Hobby Lobby where they sell all that stuff, just looks so fun to put together! haha!
I’ll admit – it does look so fun to put together, but then I think about an evil creature actually moving into the place and that freaks me out! Don’t let Tinkerbell fool you! They are not nice and sweet!!
On the flip side, gargoyles, which look and sound so scary are actually very protective creatures and very positive!
Go figure. 🙂
good point. Maybe I’ll go Goth Minimalism this next time around 🙂
Oh, you’d be in so much trouble if I were to tell my daughter about this post! She would give you all there is to know about Tinkerbell. And she’s not evil. After all, she can fly! 😉
Hahahaha – I was telling my son about the post and I said “Fairy’s are not nice!!” and he goes “Yeah, all people think about now is Tinkerbell!”
Haha! This was precious, Kate. Thanks for the smiles. 😎
🙂 I’m so glad that you enjoyed it! I really was scrolling through and saw the inspiration picture and then I was off and running with it!
Seriously, I think you work Supernatural into your blog at least one every three posts. You should try and get a job writing for them. You are obsessed!
😀 I am obsessed and very happy about it! LOL.
It was really funny, the post just came to me as I described, but as I was writing it – I remembered about the Supernatural episode and HAD to include it!
Just remembered it – yeah sure. The show seems to always be on your mind.
Oh this made me laugh and I needed that! Fairies are totally evil, at least we can now tell whose house to avoid if they have a fairy garden 🙂
That’s exactly right!
And, you know that gargoyles are actually good creatures, they protect against evil! Good reminder about not judging a book by it’s cover!! And a sad point that too many people don’t read! LOL
I love thinking of the fairy house as an Advanced Warning System… that’s brilliant!
Oh my. I didn’t know this was a thing. Now I’m scared.
I knew it was out there – but I didn’t know it was as big as it was!! Now I’m scared! LOL.
The little houses are so cute, and I really want one – but not at the risk of an actual fey moving in! 🙂
While those all are adorable, all tiny things are adorable to me. If I need a tiny things fix, I’ll just go ahead and pull out my miniature My Little Pony collection from the 80s …
LOL! I loved My Little Pony! I do think miniatures are just totally adorable, and I want a tiny doll house just so I can collect miniature pieces to fill it with!
But I’m not making a fairy garden, because just in case they are real, I don’t need that drama! 🙂
totally cracking up! my mother-n-law has massive fairy gardens!!! lol. But I mean that camper, it’s so adorable.
Yes, the camper is totally adorable!
But, ACK! I couldn’t go into your MIL yard for fear that a fairy had actually moved in and I would step on it’s house and then it would have a hold on me and then visit me in my dreams, and then it would offer pizza and I’d forget not to eat and take a bite and then I’d be trapped!!!
Obviously I have issues.
Cornwall, where we live is supposedly known as the land where fairies, pixies and other creatures live 😉 This is no joke, btw. It really is! I think I like my fairies only in books and Disney films, just as I like our garden made for us, not for them.
I just don’t think people do enough research anymore – they just go ‘Oh, that’s cute’ and don’t stop to think that it might be trouble!!
And yes, I’m talking like Fairies are real creatures. I’m sure they aren’t, I’m sure. But just in case they are, I’m not walking on their house or building one in mine for when they immigrate!!
I’m choking with laughter … must get a drink! I’ll got to my fairy kitchen and see what they have in their little fridge ….
I’m telling you! There is amazing stuff out there for little fairy houses… why do people do that?
Your guess is as good as mine Kate. There is so much that people are into that I don’t get at all!
Ha! I was thinking “please let this not be a sarcastic post title”. I love the camper but yeah, it’s all a little too “twee” for me to deal with LOL.
Fairies are not nice creatures – who keeps thinking it’s a good idea to invite them to live in their yard?!?!
Like we don’t have enough drama, let’s add a leprechaun to the mix!!
