Garden Fairies!

It's Friday already so it is Show and Tell day at My Romantic Home again. Today I am sharing some photos of a little garden fairy and her baby that my daughter gave me a few years ago.They are enjoying the sunshine and flowers in the sunroom!

Aren't they the cutest?

Enjoy your weekend.

p.s Are any of you going to see the movie Dear John? I am really looking forward to seeing it next week with my daughters.I read the book twice and loved it.It is a Nicholas Sparks book. I went to see The Young Victoria with a friend and enjoyed it as well.

The new colors for your blog go perfectly with your header and I adore your garden fairies. I need to learn how to do a photo mosaic. I love how yours always turn out.

Linda said...

You and I have the same garden angel. Isn't it a small world. My hyacinths are now blooming as well.Have a great weekend.

Your garden fairies are adorable. The expression on the "Mom" is perfect - deep in thought, but all knowing.

I so enjoy your blog. It's a bit of a treat with my morning coffee. Love the new header.

Hi Carolyn,

You changed your header! It looks like you are ready for spring as well! I have several books by Nicolas Sparks in my cupboard. I like the movie they made of The Notebook. It is one of my favourites! I haven't heard of the film 'Dear John' yet in Holland, but I will try to see if I can find a trailer on internet!

Wish you a happy weekend!

Lieve groet, Madelief

Carolyn, they are so pretty, and must always give you a smile.

I really want to see The Young Victoria, and there are several other movies out now that I want to see. I think I'll rope my husband in for this evening.

Carolyn...I love your garden fairy! I love those type of statues and garden decor! I do want to see "Young Victoria" but it was not being shown in my town. I will probably wait till it is out on dvd. I am just hearing about "Dear John"....let us know how you like it! We are in the midst of a winter storm in is like a "snowglobe" here!~Patti

Lovely weekend to you!

Hi Carolyn
Love the new header and background colour, it suits you well.
I'm probably the only one that is going to say this, but I have trouble with the blank staring eyes on white figurines. I usually paint mine, some with detail and others just a solid colour. (probably just me :-)
I still like your fairies though and the charm they add indoors and out.

June said...

Hi Carolyn, Your daughter knows what to give a gardener's soul doesn't she? The faeries are beautiful and cheer up the space so well. The hyacinth is so pretty. I love having blooms in the house in Winter. It always elevates my spirit.
I hope you have a great time at the movie with your daughters. It sounds so fun. You'll have to let me know what you think of the show. I don't get the opportunity to go out much with my husband because we can't leave Landon very often, so I typically never go to the theater. I don't like going alone much, unless it is really worth it.

Oh, your little garden fairies are so, so sweet! And I imagine that your hyacinth smells wonderful!!!
Have a wonderful weekend, Carolyn - I hope you all enjoy the movie!

Dining Delight said...

Those fairies are so darling and go perfect with all your flowers! I love the expressions on their faces. Hope you like the Dear John movie. I find when I've read the book, I'm usually disappointed in the movie - it seems they have to cut a lot out to fit the time or the characters are not as you pictured. Still it is fun to go see it - Enjoy!

Hi, Carolyn,
