The Rest of the Story:
1: I'm sure y'all have heard that fairy gardens are all the rage and that they are being put together in all manner of ways in all of the out of the way places you can think of. And rumor has it that the fairies stop off along their flights to sip a cup of tea if it's left out for them, and have been known to even rearrange things in the garden so that you know they have been there.
2: Well, little Lilly really wants to see the fairies and has stayed up as late as she can and even got up really early and snuck outside before dawn and tried to find them, but no such luck. Then she heard about these fairy gardens that were becoming all the rage in the more metropolitan areas and she did herself some research. "Why, it's just like a garden, only smaller" she thought. "How hard can that be?" So she went about asking any and everyone she met if they had anything she could use for props in her soon to be fairy garden.
3: She gathered, sticks, stones, glue, brush, fabric scraps, plant clippings, broken mirror pieces, and even some Barbie cups and set about building her version of a fairy garden. She had heard that they liked to stop off mid-flight for some refreshment and she planned her garden to be a little fairy teahouse for surely that would entice them to stop for a bit.
4: She spent days playing, and puttering, and building, and planting, and painting, and finally she thought it was almost ready for visitors. So every morning she would try to get up as early as possible and race to the window to see if she could see any fairies. And she checked every little element to see if anything had been moved. No such luck. "Give it time" everyone said. But Little Lilly wasn't known for being patient and she was really feeling frustrated about the fairies not liking her fairy garden teahouse well enough to stop by.
Bright, cheerful, sparkly, fun, and be brave kinds of wishes. Fairy wings and pixie things are all invited too.
