I’ve always loved miniatures. When I was young, my mom bought me this tiny set of cartoon characters. She said I played with them for hours and hours. This is when my love of them began. As an adult, I love to use them to create little fairy gardens and vignettes.
For fall, I have several of these little vignettes. The first one is a fall fairy garden. I filled the container with soil and added small pebbles and moss. Then the fun begins, I love to arrange what I’ve collected. A fairy sign, fall trees (one lights up!) various pumpkins, a basket filled with harvested veggies and of course, a fall fairy (who is perched on a pumpkin.) I love this little scene (shopping sources listed below.)
The next vignette, has a fall scene from the Hundred Acre Wood. I really enjoy changing out elements of this for the different seasons/holidays. For the fall, Winnie has a whimsical pumpkin house with a stone path leading to it. Pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns complete the scene. The little white picket fence was painted by my mom. This vignette lives in my hallway. A quote from Winnie, “If you live to be a hundred, I want to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you,” hangs above. (shop sources listed below).
The last vignette is a bit bigger in size. The scene is of Cinderella about to get into her pumpkin coach. The carriage is sitting in a bed of vines surrounded by cute little pumpkins and fall trees. Another quote (you might be realizing how much I love little quotes by now!) says, “Live like there is no midnight.” That is a motto I try to live by. Another way to put it is “Carpe Diem” which means seize the day! We only go through time once, so I like to live all out and love all out. Celebrating the magic of each day…this little scene reminds me to do just that. (shop sources listed below)
