While planning the reading kit for this month’s Borrower menu, I wound up stumbling across a LOT of cute miniature things, especially fairy gardens. I’d heard of fairy gardens before—miniature outdoor displays set up to look like fairies live there—but I had NO IDEA they could get so elaborate. There were ones carved out of rooted tree stumps, embedded in stone walls, and even built from scratch to look like real, miniature homes! They had me wishing I could live there, so I made a list of my favorites to share with you. Here are my Borrower dream homes!

Have you read the 68 Rooms books? They’re about the Thorne rooms at the Art Institute in Chicago.
Sorry, I realize I didn’t connect the dots. The Thorne rooms are Borrower size miniatures of real rooms throughout history. The 68 Rooms books are about 2 kids who have magical adventures in them. They combine tiny people / rooms with time travel.
I’ve never heard of those books! They sound awesome—pretty much exactly the kind of adventures I wanted to have when I was a kid. 🙂
So cute! Fairy gardens are so cool. There’s a local artist near me that does some beautiful ones.
I don’t know if you’re familiar with Martina from the Eat Your Kimchi Youtube channel, but she just decorated her whole garden with mini fairy stuff. And she has a mini town by her kitchen sink. I was so jealous!
I am not, but that sounds so cool!
These are so charming! Of course I’d have to choose the teapot to live in. Though a close second would be the campground with the little caravan! (Although, I’ve never actually been camping before, so I’m not sure if I would succeed at “roughing it”).
I’ve only been camping a few times (and I’ve got major allergies, so I was pretty miserable). But I figure if I’m small enough to fit in that caravan, grains of pollen are probably too big to bother my sinuses anyway. 🙂
