Fairy Garden in a Guitar Case

I have put fairy gardens in old wash tubs.....wheel beds.....but never a old guitar case!   When I decided to put a fairy garden on the buffet in the sun room,   I realized that I didn't have a container to put it in that was long and narrow.   I had just bought this case at a yard sale for $1 and I thought.....why not!

We drove over to Amarillo Texas Saturday to eat lunch and go to a few yard few you say?.....they had 65 sales advertised in the news paper and there are always tons of signs along the major streets advertising yard sales.   Needless to say,  we didn't get around to all of them!
