In a Teacup

- gazing ball pic - Similar (purchase here)

Rated: Very Easy Arrangement
This is a fun planting you can put together inside, even if it's been raining for three days, or snowing. Can you hear me whining? You can find shamrocks in the stores now and pansies in the nurseries. The 9 oz. teacup gives you a little extra room to plant in, as it is larger than a regular teacup.
The fairy, a collector's item, is fine hand painted porcelain, and made from the drawings of Cicely Mary Barker, who was born in South London in 1895. Her Flower Fairies books that were published in 1923, became famous all over the world. Recently, the factory closed where the flower fairy porcelain figurines were being made. The artisans who made them and hand painted them were getting older and the newer generation wanted to move into the city. So the figurines are becoming rare. Next week I will have links where you can find them.
If you have your teacup, fairy, gazing ball and plants, let's begin.
