Gnome Fairy Garden in a Beverage Tub, 2018


Today, I will be sharing my Gnome Fairy Garden in a Beverage tub for this Summer Season!!!!

But first, I want to Thank Amber, over at Follow The Yellow Brick Home, for featuring my post, Rose and Tea Cups, from the special party, It's a Spring Tea Link Party that she hosted along with other Bloggers.....
Thanks so much, Amber!!!

I also want to Thank Karren, over at Oh My Heartsie Girl, for featuring my post, Fairy Garden in a Galvanized Tub, from last week's Friday Feature Linky Party!!
Thanks so much , Karren!!!

Please stop by and link up to these wonderful parties!!!

 For several years now, I have had a Gnome themed Fairy Garden that I set up in a Beverage Tub......
   It sits on the side of the patio that I call Joe's side, right at the edge of the garden.....
   You can see my Cottage Garden beyond it.......
 But that will be for another post......
  I did add a few new things to it this year........

Because I decided to set up a Fairy Garden on the mantle of my faux fire place in the Sitting Room........
Click HERE if you missed that post......

I used some of the items that I had used for this Fairy Garden in a Galvanized Tub for the indoor Fairy Garden.......

So I bought a few new Fairy Garden items at Big Lots for this Fairy Garden......
Click HERE if you missed that post........

And a few for this Gnome Fairy Garden in a Beverage Tub......
Let's take a look, shall we??????
Over on the left side of the tub, is a new Solar lighted house!!!
I love the colors of it!!!

In front of the house, is an area of "grass" that I made using green gem stones from Dollar Tree!!
A sweet little Wishing Well sits in the "grass"......
 I also made a "pond" area using blue gem stones from Dollar Tree.......
 I planted "Hens and Chicks" as they tend to not take over the Fairy Garden and can be thinned out easily.....
 Next to the house is another new item, a gnome swinging on a swing!!
   He looks to be a Baby Gnome........
So we will say that Momma and Pappa Gnome are out in front of another house that I bought a few years ago......
 They seem to be getting ready for Afternoon Tea........
 A tea pot and tea cups are sitting out on the table.....
 All these items were bought at Big Lot's over the past few years.....
 So this is what my Gnome Fairy Garden in a Beverage Tub looks like for this Summer Season......
  I hope you enjoyed seeing it.......
As I mentioned in the beginning of this post, the Gnome Fairy Garden sits on the edge of the Patio......
Other years, I had it sitting on a different base.......
This year, I bought this garden themed patio stool to put the beverage tub on......
I bought it in Ollie's........
I like the way it looks with the Gnome Fairy Garden in a Beverage Tub.......

In my next post, I finally will be sharing my Summer Front Porch......

We actually had a day without rain and I was able to take pictures........
 So I hope you will be back to visit again soon.......


This is in regards to the issue with Blogger not sending the comments on posts by way of email to the owners of Blogs......

Since there have always been bloggers who commented in the past who I did not receive an email in regards to their comment, I have made it a practice of checking the comment section on Blogger or checking the comments under each individual post so I did not miss a comment.

I try to respond to ALL comments on my posts in some way......

Since those who commented took the time to do so and also took the time to visit my post, I believe that the right thing to do is to respond with a comment on their Blog post....

In other words, I believe that I am returning the favor of a visit and I have always believed that this is the proper thing to do instead of responding by a Thank You in an email......

I will continue to do this by looking at the comments on each post or in the comment section on blogger.....

If you do not have a blog or I can not find another way to respond, I will reply on the post that you commented on so PLEASE check back......

This is something that I have been doing for some time now and will continue to do even if blogger fixes this issue......

Thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me!!

If you do not have a blog, PLEASE  give me some way to reply to your comment, maybe by including your email in your comment.  If I can not find a way to reach you, I will reply on the post where you commented so please check back......

  1. I love this fairy garden. These are so cute and such a fun find in gardens and patios! Have a great weekend Debbie! Do you have any fun plans? Denver is going to be hot! laura

  2. Debbie, your Gnome Fairy Garden is so sweet. Gotta ask if you drilled drainage holes in the bottom of your container? I made one in a big resin flower pot saucer last year and it kept collecting water when it rained. Consequently, it kept filling with rainwater and I had trouble trying pour the water off without upsetting the gnomes' home and garden. You probably have a sheltered area that you are able to move it under. I did not.

  3. Debbie, how darling is this gnome fairy garden! You are so creative, and I love the whimsy of a fairy garden! Thank you for sharing at Gardens Galore! Have a wonderful Friday!

  4. I've seen fairy gardens in teacups but I've never seen them this large! I love how you utilized the extra space! So adorable! =)

    Have a great weekend! Melanie | Toots + Dill Blog

  5. OMG! This is so, so cute.. I love it..

  6. This is so cool, Debbie, I know that the gnomes and fairies will happily ever after there.

  7. I love the gnome's fairy garden and you've given me a great idea. A couple years ago the H and I acquired a large a set of pool steps which he transformed into a planting bed. Our plan was to use it as a terraced strawberry bed. Unfortunately, we can't make the soil deep enough, and the plants burn up in summer, and die in winter. Annuals look nice, but they are expensive for the amount we need to fill it and I have to pay close attention to make sure they don't burn up, or drown. No one is will to admit it is a fail and remove it. We keep thinking we'll think of SOMETHING. I think your Gnomes village might be a fun idea.

  8. Love your new tub garden. I also think the stand is adorable.

  9. I love the little swinging gnome! He is absolutely adorable! Thanks for sharing your fairy garden with us at Merry Monday this week!

  10. I love the idea of putting a fairy garden in a beverage tub! It's actually pretty ingenious. My daughter and I purchased a few fairy garden items at our local store and have yet to build one. I think this will be perfect! Thanks for linking up to the Make Life Pretty Monday link party! Hope to see you next week!

  11. Your fairy garden is like a fairyland...love and love! Thank you very much for your sweet comments

  12. Too cute! I love fairy gardens.

  13. Oh my word! I love this! What a great idea. #wonderfulwednesday
