Fairest Fairy Gardening with Department 56

We are taking a break from our beloved miniature gardening this month to explore a little fairy gardening. ** We’ve launched our Sophisticated Fairy Gardening eBook, version 1.0, to help you connect the fairies to your garden in more creative way. We have discussed using fairy moss in the living fairy garden, and we have lined up a fairy garden workshop next month with our friends at The Fairy Store. Very, very fairy!

But wait. There’s more. Click any of the images to enlarge.

Today, it’s time to get in the garden with our new friends at Department 56 and their new line of fairy garden accessories. They have sponsored us to help promote a sweepstakes to win $500 worth of Enchanted Guardian line. Can you imagine receiving $500 worth of fairy gardening accessories all at once? How fun is that? How many boxes is that? Pick me! Lol!

Go ask Alice, I think she'll know. Queen Alice rules the fairy garden. A very sweet, life-sized bunny with beautiful fairy wings.

It’s happening through Pinterest here. Pin your favorite garden photo or inspirational image and you will be entered to win. You can write letters to Queen Alice to tell your own story of your fairy gardening. The photos can be any garden-related or garden-inspired pin that strikes your fancy (or how about from this blog post? ;o) No purchase is necessary from Department 56 or the Enchanted Guardian line so there is no excuse for not entering.

Department 56 has created a story around all their new fairy accessories. If you are familiar with their well-known highly collectible miniature holiday village scenes and accessories, this new line follows the same love of a good story. Each character has little bio included with them, or you can formulate your own story from the figure itself. Animal soldiers and a knight-gnome patrols and protects the garden. The fairies and their brothers, take care of the seeds and flowers. Each fairy animal has a purpose that can easily be turned into a sweet little garden lesson for the kids too.

So here is the pinterest board, click here – remember the photo can be any garden-relates or inspired pin so pin away for a chance to win. Oh, and we want to – no-wait-a-minute – WE HAVE TO – see a photo of you surrounded all those Department 56 boxes when you win. Lol!

** The difference is miniature gardening is based in realism and created for growing the garden and the plants. Fairy gardening focuses on setting a scene for fairies to inhabit – but we love to make it as realistic as possible in a very fairy way here at Two Green Thumbs.

See all the new Enchanted Guardian line here.

We loved how this wee fairy is loving the lady bug. We've moved her around the garden and the office - she sits so well!!

Spike! He's very cute. And he has wings too. He looks after the garden at night and sleeps during the day. We had to get up early to get this shot before he went to bed.

With so many characters, making up a story can get very creative.

  2. I feel like this is a really ridiculous question, but can the entry for the 56 contest be any picture with a fairy garden in it? I know that’s what you say above, but on the Pinterest page there are only pictures that include items from Gallery 56 in them (and sadly I don’t have any yet!). I would feel weird if I don’t follow the contest rules and post a picture that doesn’t belong 🙂 Thanks!

      • LOL! Okay 🙂 I just felt like it might be like going to a costume party with a crazy costume on, only to find out it wasn’t a costume party at all! I didn’t want to be the one to stand out! 🙂
