The Diaper Fairy

I'm coming in at the wire with this challenge from "Anything But A Card".  The challenge for this fortnight was 'fairy' and I knew immediately that I wanted to redo one of my moss gardens into a fairy garden... a very particular fairy garden.
But it has been sooooo hot lately and I just didn't want to take the hike to go get moss.  I finally couldn't wait anymore, hot or no.
The stones have come from many places we've traveled... Alaska, Washington, Scotland.  The rings are broken limpet shells from Scotland.  The fern just came off the 'pitiful rack' as Lowes.  ;-) 

My family has a joke about the 'diaper fairy'.  I bought a bunch diapers when Little Bird was born and left them stacked in the foyer.  Sis asked in surprise, "Where'd all the diapers come from?"  My reply... "The diaper fairy came by."
Here she is making another delivery!

A Walking Shoe Gather No Moss

As my studio makeover progresses, I'm able to actually start using it and start creating again.  I'm loving it!  To walk over and pick up what I need...from where it belongs.
Oh yeah...
Jenn's theme for the Artist's Playroom was 'shoes' and at Crafting For All Seasons was 'with a tag'.  I had a pair of Himself's boots that he left outside and 'our' silly wren made a nest in one of them.  After being lived in by a brood of birds he was no longer interested in wearing them!  So they are now mine to alter as I please.
One of my new cactus, some dried moss, plus my tag and I know have a fun piece to set near the window. 
Soon it will be cool enough to start our hikes again!
