The Fairy Garden Workshop for this weekend, Saturday, July 28th is filled. But that doesn't mean you can't come by and take a look at our fairy garden supplies. Lots to choose from with benches, bridges, and birdbathes. Next month we will have another fairy workshop; stay tuned for the date.

Next Fairy Garden workshop will be July 28th from 1-3pm. Call to reserve your space.The Lakshmanan Fairies sent in a picture of their garden. Emily is one of 3 granddaughter that enjoys this garden. Mischief is made each day in each hiding place and path. It seems fairies even celebrated the 4th of July with an American Flag.

During their visit that day, they noticed the girls did not have simple necessities, like sheets for their beds, towels, or shampoo. Of course Andrea went to the market the next afternoon and bought shampoo, soap and hair bows, but the bigger problem was buying sheets and towels for all the girls.
One friday night when they got back to Charlotte, Andrea and Larrie had a spontaneous hot dog night at their condo and started talking about Ingrid and Maria and Carmen. Larrie showed the others pictures and simply enough they raised unexpected $650!!
Now the girls will have sheets and towels and extra cloth to buy a sewing machine that each girl will have time to use to learn the trade of sewing.
More money has been raised and is being sent down this month. The funds are being sent to a friend, Nancy, who buys what the girls need. Just a little grass roots effort helping 19 precious girls.
More pics and stories to come.
