Those little things are always the most fun!!!

I hope you are having a FABULOUS time, and enjoying every minute with your friends. I love how Sugarwings sees the world. She will inspire others just the way you do. Reminds me of how I do alot of glittering outside myself, and catch glimmering specks here and there when I look out my patio doors. Have a great rest of the week, and thanks for working hard before your trip so we can enjoy posts while you are gone!


How fun; brings back fairy house memories. My daughter n' I
did this when she was little down at the shore. A lot of shell furniture, we used flowers, acorns and sea glass. It
was a magical time~

My hubby is in CA...Navy related! Enjoy your time away~





Looks like a perfectly lovely time to me!! One of the perks of being a grandma!


What a fun time you both had!! Very pretty and magical!!...and I'm sure that the fairies love it.


Looks like glittery fairy fun! Congratulations to you for being chosen as a winner by "Where Women Create"! ~ Angela


I love the glittery rocks. Way to go, Sugarwings!


I just know you are having a fun time... but nothing like the morning depicted here... building castles, glitterways, dreams, and memories with your fairy grandbaby!

Looks like the rocks and the glitter make a magical combination when waved over with creative hands!


Thought for the day: You can NEVER go wrong with glitter!
Looks like you had a grand time of it. I do understand the rock fetish though. They look so cool and then you bring them home and uh...hmmm...whadya DO with 'em?????? Looks fun.


Zita - Mlle Magpie

Sounds like you had a fabulous time at the "craft spa". Btw, your new hair color looks fantastic (saw your pic on Beth's blog)!


What a fun grandma you are! Looks like you both had a great time. Now I need a fairy garden!

I saw some photos from the Sirens - looks like a blast!


It looks like a perfectly fun way to spend a day to me! I visited your blog during Where Bloggers Create and have been following since and i just read the big news - congratulations on winning a spot in Where Women Create!!!!!


Hi Karla, Thank you so much for all the posts that you
prepared during your vacation. I hope that you are
having the best time and can't wait to hear all about
your adventures when you return. The little rocks do
look like peanuts!! : ) I'm sure Sugarwings really
had fun with you and all of the lovely glitter. The
pearl earrings are very pretty. Love them!!

Jordan AJF8

Sometimes, I pride myself on this beautiful garden.


You are the best Grandma Karla! That picture with Sugar Wings and the purple glitter is so sweet. I can't wait to share times like that with little ones. Oh wait, yes I can...my oldest is SO not ready to go there!
