When I was little, I vividly remember visiting my grandparents’ house and sitting on their screened porch at dusk. All curled up next to my grandmother on the porch swing, we’d rock in the summertime breeze as she recounted stories about “fairies” that visited her house. Wide-eyed and ripe for dreaming, I’d gasp as she pointed out into her garden: “There’s one right there! Did you see it?” The little flashes of light (coincidentally quite comparable to those of lightening bugs) appeared and disappeared fleetingly as my imagination ran wild.
Although older now, the enchantment of fairies is still near and dear to my heart. Whenever holidays arrive, my family always keeps an eye out for miniature fairies, figurines, and other fairy-themed gifts for my grandmother to remind her of the fond memories we have of those times spent dreaming on her porch. These delightful little fairy houses we’ve found will truly bring magic to any garden and welcome a sense of wonder—no matter what age you are. After all, what kind of hosts would we be without offering our tiny houseguests a place to stay? Whether putting on your D.I.Y. hat or letting someone else’s hands do the work, we invite you to bring these playful fairy gardens into your home and share the magic with little ones of your own.
