Pocket Letter, Bluebells and Fairy Garden.

Hello! We have been enjoying the sunshine in the garden and I have been making a few crafty things.

 I made these little seed/letter pockets using some Victorian seed catalogue and flower illustrations. I used a blank card to make up the pocket and stuck the edges down with some pretty washi tape,

Before sticking the card down I cute out a window to see the seed packet inside. The top was left open and sides and bottom washi taped together to make a pocket.

The garden is looking pretty now with quite a few flowers we have put in.

We have also created a little fairy garden complete with Fairy hotel. I will show more of the garden next time as it isn't quite finished yet. The Fairy Hotel started as a Country Store - nice but not that pretty...

Alpines and some succulents in our new Fairy Garden.

...So we gave it a make over!

The Sparkles had some fun at Lepe Beach flying a little butterfly mini kite.

I made up this pocket letter for a Happy Mail swap. You can buy the plastic wallets on Amazon, they are for baseball collector cards. I filled mine with tropical themed pretties.

We had a fantastic time at Micheldever Woods to see the Bluebells. It really was a beautiful sight.

 I hope you enjoyed this post and that you managed to see some Bluebells too!
