Gnome garden

This year I decided to branch out from my usual fairy garden.

It was time to let some men of the gnome variety into the mix.
I used one of the hypertufa houses that Mr. Enchanted had made for me, and added in some cute pieces that I found at Hobby Lobby.  I always get such a kick out of looking in the hypertufa houses because chipmonks winter in them and they are always FULL of acorns!  Last year one of the little guys was actually looking out the window at me :)

I used a bag of river rock from The Dollar Tree to make pathways.

And then I added an earth home, or hobbit house, or whatever it is called.  I built a mound of dirt, pressed a door into the front, and then topped it off with some succulents.  
I may replace the succulents with moss - what do you think?


  1. Hi Lisa, I finally put some things that I had been collecting in an arrangement just the other day. I have some herbs, succulents and flat leaf parsley and the rocks from $ Tree, too. I'll have to post mine someday. Yours looks so cute and I love the house your hubby made and also the little dirt one that you did. I need a little gnome or fairy!

  2. How cute! Your fantasy garden is just darling! Love the gnome! Thanks for visiting!
