Barnyard Fairy Garden

I picked up some little piggy fairies at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago and couldn't wait to use them in a Barnyard Fairy Garden on the front porch.

I used three wicker baskets to create individual gardens for each of my little pigs    Then I put my fairy baskets on the buffet that sits to the side of the front door.

I hung a Farm House sign over my fairy baskets

I used a basket I purchased recently at a yard sale for the "center" piece of my vignette......

I filled my basket with mushrooms......little piggies.....ferns.....moss......

I sat a moss covered fairy house in the center of the basket and sat a fairy pig on the front porch.

I kept on filling my basket by adding a tree......a bench....and a fairy grandmother to the side of the pig and his house......

I placed a bull under the basket on one side......

and on the other side,   I made a Pig Pen and filled it with a mama pig and lots of piggies!

The basket on the left side of my vignette is a handled basket that you saw me use at Easter......

I placed a fairy cottage in the center of my basket......

Then I sat my second fairy pig on the front porch......

The third basket on the right side of the buffet is reflected a mirror that is hung on the wall right as you get to the front door......

This third little pig is fast asleep on the front porch of his fairy cottage.

The porch rules.......a rusty basket is hung on the wall and filled with ferns.......and on the floor is a birdhouse and a metal boot puller.  

There are two drawers beneath the buffet top that I filled with plants and greenery......

I sat a fairy cottage on one side ........

a pile of pigs is in the other side!

This vignette completes the summer decor in the front porch entry way!  

  Thank you so much for stopping by today.....come back soon!
