Doozey popping in to show a new succulent fairy garden, and other good things...

Hello from the Dooz-in-ator!!! She is looking directly at the camera for the first time ever!!! DIL took this shot as she was sitting...I believe she got such a result due to food being involved! Of course.....

Doozey would like to present her Mama's new cleaned and organized screenroom succulent area!

Many were just plain dead, many were used to make the new fairy succulent garden below, and so I had to do some shuffling, throwing away, etc. It was all good though and now it looks so spiffy. It lead to a good cleaning of the whole room, which was SOOOO GOOD!!!

Before I show the fairy garden, there is some other breaking news.....guess who has lost not one, but TWO baby teeth this week???

DONOVAN the magnificent!!!

So here is my new creation today! I had saved all my fairy garden making supplies, so I dragged them out, washed up my large shallow dish, and got some brand spankin new cactus soil. I took a few cuttings from the outside tire gardens as well, and most from the shaded screenroom. I will need to water daily for a while until roots are established.

Here are a few close ups. I love it...makes for a lot of happiness!

I haven't been posting a lot lately...been doing a lot of catch up after quitting my cleaning, doctors appointments, etc. I hope to do better...trying to search for a job too...everything is so time consumming...but as my friend always says "EVER ONWARD..."
Hugs and kisses...Julie

Love your fairy garden! I get tempted when I see these creative creations....I really don't need another project. We spent four hours today pruning roses, shrubs and trees... Maybe, I do need a fairy size garden!

Oh boy, the fairies are back!! Gosh I haven't seen them in so long. Your gardens and plants are beautiful. It's just like Cactus Monday.

Doozey, you are so darn cute!

Two teeth gone, gosh, he is getting old right before our eyes.

Enjoy your busy time off before you find that job.

Your fairy garden is just gorgeous, Donovan must love it. Dont the littlies always look cute when they start to lose their front teeth.

You have done a great job with your succulent corner and those lovely white shelves. it looks so fresh and new.

Your new fairy garden is sweet. Lucky you having all those succulents. Doosey is a cutie. So is your toothless little fellow.

Doozey is adorable! Same look my dogs have when food is involved.

The succulent area looks so lovely and neat. The fairy garden is awesome! I wonder if the tooth fairy will visit Donovan? TWO teeth needs some reward, right? :)

Good luck with the job search, Julie.

Love and hugs,
Serena xo

Hi Julie,
I hope you will find an another job soon, but enjoy the time you have with your family and all the things that you enjoy doing. Thanks for alway sharing your family, garden and your adorable Doozey girl.
Thanks for your comment on my blog. I find my dollar stamps at Michael's and Jo-anns. I keep checking the bins to see if they got any thing new. They should be getting in their Spring stamps. Michael's dollar bin has gone up to $1.50 but that is still a good price for a stamp. I have also heard that a few Wal-marts are carry some dollar stamps and other goodies too.

Hola Julia, me alegra ver que estás tan creativa y con tanta fuerza, el jardín de hadas es una preciosidad, con todos sus detalles, bonitos todos, la hada durmiendo, la regadera, la valla, el colorido de las suculentas..... todo me gusta mucho
