I was asked by my friends at Skyhorse Publishing to review these books. I love miniature gardens so of course I said yes!
"Fairy Gardening: Creating Your Own Magical Miniature Garden" by Julie Bawden-Davis and Beverly Turner has lots of ideas for setting up little scenes.
I love this idea of changing them out for the seasons. I am so doing a Halloween version this Fall. (why didn't I think of that, I can use my pumpkin idea)
The Christmas/winter garden idea they have will have to be an indoor one (gotta love Canadian winters).....it would be a great centrepiece for the Christmas table though.
There is also a section on the best mini plants to use. A great book to inspire you.
"Fairy Gardening 101" by Fiona McDonald has wonderful ideas for including the kiddos.
She also gives you the 'how to' on making your own furniture and accessories. A great resource.
The impromptu Fairy gardens and the "in the wild" ones are especially nice. Great to make on an afternoon hike this summer.
Both books are a treat and up for a giveaway.
If you want a chance to win you need to do one of the following:
