Meeting New Friends at Little Jo's Fairy Gardens

Every year the dolls at Grandma's house look forward to a party celebrating new friends and remembering old friends who have moved away.  This year the party will be In late September or early in October.  American girl Samantha, Broken Pot Fairy Garden, Container Gardening, Doll Stories, Dolls, fairy garden, JLY #16, Just Pretend doll, Laurel The Wood Fairy, Stardust classics, Raised container Gardening,
That being said,  it should be noted that the dolls do have minds of their own.  Our three newest dolls decided that they wanted to see the fairy garden that was outside the window where they sit.   They wanted to watch the hummingbirds that played above the fairy gardens.  The birds were enjoying their freedom to soar in endless swoops and dives.  It does seem as if the tiny birds are playing outside the window from the time the early morning sun rays spread across the dew kissed gardens until the shadows of evening start to cloak antics.

Laurel wanted to see what was outside of the window for herself.  She connived with Cheetah (the families huge cat) to sneak the door open long enough for her and Lit'l Bee (our new Effanbee baby doll) to escape for a little while.  Sammie (our new AG cousin) was watching as Cheetah stretched his body as long as he was able to so that he could reach the latch on the door.  Once the door opened Sammie scampered out the door right behind Laurel and Lit'l Bee.  Cheetah closed the door quickly behind them Just as Grandma saw the girls escape out the door.  Grandma smiled and grabbed her camera so that she could take pictures of their adventure.

The Fairies keep a dragon by the front door of their flower pot home to help keep the garden spiders out of their house.

Laurel enjoys watching after Lit'l Bee.  Sometimes Sammie likes to watch the Lit'l Bee Doll Baby too. Lit'l Bee looks a bit afraid of the dragon that guards the entrance to the fairies cozy Flower pot home.  Laurel made sure to stay close to Bee's side to help her to not be as afraid of the dragon.

Sweet Sammie held the Lit'l Bee baby doll until she quit trembling from fear at the sight of the dragon in the fairy garden

I suppose the dragon would seem very scary to such a little doll like Bee

My goodness!  the fairy gardens do look so pretty from above - almost like the Emerald city from the Wizard of Oz.

It's time for the girls to go in now that the evening air is starting to feel chilly.

Here are a few sneak previews of the post Grandma will post over at Plum Creek Place this coming week, (after they are posted a link will be added to this post so you can see for yourself).  First there are a few peaks at the new Mermaid Fairy Garden

And there is a small Mermaid Garden with a big conch shell for the fairy to live in.

There is a little Pirates Cove Fairy Garden too - my it does look like the Black Pearl is sneaking out of the cove to head out to the high seas.

We hope to see you over at Plum Creek Place next week.

Laurel, Sammie and Lit'l Bee along with Little Jo and all of her cousins will be back in a few weeks for their tea party.  See you then!


  1. So cute! I love all of your little fairy gardens. What kind of doll is Laurel? I am not familiar with her, but she is very pretty.

  2. What a lovely post, your three newest dolls look great and who doesn't like a fairy garden.
    Happy September Wishes

    All the best Jan

  3. Oh my oh my oh my - everything is so wonderful. Love the three new dolls - such pretty hair. The fairy garden is just fabulous - so much more than I expected - though not sure why I didn't expect such a beauty from you - you always do the greatest designs and clever set ups. I love the fairies and the dragons and the plants - everything is so wonderful. And how nice of the big girls to take care of Lit'l Bee so she wouldn't be afraid of the dragon - I'm afraid of scary ol' dragons too. Everything is simply perfect. Can't wait to see the tea party. Have a great week ahead my friend.
