It's snowy here in my northwoods today. We got a couple of inches overnight and now the sun is trying to come out a bit. But don't let it fool you! With the windchill here today it feels like about 20 below zero! Hope you're staying nice and cozy. ;)
I wanted to share a "little" miniature fun with you today. Why is it that miniature anything just equals magic? Especially with kiddos. It just seems to easily spark imagination. Pretending you were shrunk to miniature size and jumping in that doll house, or fairy garden, or other magical place. It's a love that my Annie and I share. Well I found some fun Christmas miniatures and surprised her with a new decoration in my dining room cupboard the other day.
I found some neat miniature items on Etsy, but you can find adorable fairyland kinds of miniatures in so many places these days. Craft stores, garden centers, and gift stores. I took the wagon and carefully set the little potted tree in the back, and then carefully stacked the presents in front of it. I then topped it with this sweet little fairy Santa hat and then poured some fake snow over all. And added a few fun snowballs too!
I had some cotton (fake snow) batting and placed that in my teacup and draped it over the sides. I did add a little piece of cardboard on the top of the teacup first - for stability for the wagon.
And placed that sweet magical teacup in my dining room hutch among my other teacups and dishes.
And then found some miniature lights to top of the tree - because what's a Christmas tree without lights?
And sometimes I catch Annie just gazing at it. I think she imagines she's pulling that wagon on a snowy cloud with a fairy by her side. Do you feel the magic?
