My Fairy Garden

I almost hesitated because I didn’t have a girl to enjoy doing it with. But I’ve never let that stop me, so I got a couple things I liked. My son, Drake and I have the best time picking out supplies and accessories to order on Etsy. And it was like Christmas when each one arrived. Drake and I really bonded over these tiny little miniature creatures which now live in our little garden. It’s been an unexpected cherished memory between my tween son and me.
