Have you got a fairy at the bottom of your garden

Hello Everyone.......Brrr...winter is fast approaching in New Zealand,thank goodness I have my fluffy slippers this morning.

Had a good day at work yesterday...and finally met 'My Lady 2"...she would be the tiniest little thing I've ever 5ft 10"....she would be lucky if she was 5ft..,,,,I knocked on the door and a little voice said'come in' in I go...and it was like walking into a dolls house, really, everything was so tiny...I called 'where are you' and the reply 'in  the bedroom'...well that I followed the voice and all that was in there was a big bed and some drawers...

I stood and looked around and said 'where in the bedroom' and this tiny head popped up from under 30 quilts and she said 'here I am'..bless..she was cold and had crawled back into bed.....after a chat, I got stuck into...did dishes, vaccumed and cleaned the bathroom.....she hopped out of bed and went outside for a ciggie....then it started, come and talk to me, the floors are not dirty, I want you here, leave that, dont worry about my 1 1/2 hours went quickly...and I ended up chatting with her....and I think thats what quite a few people

While typing this waffle, the heavens just opened up, and I cant hear the TV for the rain...6.30am and pouring down...

Anyway, I have a card to share today, and by the title was wondering if any of you out there have one of these at the bottom of your garden..................

I found this one, and she is soooo pretty, and she is going to visit her wee friend who lives here..

This is a wonderful freebie from SPYDER 

I coloured with Faber Castell pencils...added glossy accents to the windows and glitter on the mushrooms...spellbinders leaves behind the image and my cheery Lyn fence.

The I needed a fairy, and I had nothing at all, small enough, so went searching and found this little pet, who I shrunk down several times to get her the right size, then cut her out....

and popped her on foam dots, glittered her wings, and there she sits waiting for her friend.

And there is the side view...

I want to visit her too! I could sit under that tree all day. :) The specks of green on those leaves and the hues of the bark look terrific Chrissy.
I had a great laugh at your 'Alice In Wonderland' visit with lady 2. Did we sip from the 'Drink Me' bottle on accident before entering?
Fabulous and entertaining post as always!
Big hugs,
