When I first moved to Tennessee I was in High School. Yes, it was awful to be moved out of state and leave everyone behind.
There were no cell phones, skyping, Facebook, Instagram, Google+ any way to connect with friends. Just old fashioned writing letters. (that got old quick)
I had no friends and was ready to start in a new school. Then, a blonde hair beauty showed up at my grandmother's house one day. We were living with my grandmother till we found a house to move into.
Her name was Carol. She became my friend and I survived my transition. We had a blast! We laughed and did things we probably shouldn't have but we created some great memories.
We are still friends today.
This past weekend was Memorial Day festivities. We usually have a huge party but with all the travel we've been doing, we decided not to this year. Carol is always at our parties. We usually sit long after everyone has gone and talk and laugh and share our thoughts.
This year she had a party and I got to visit her and have fun at her house.
I got a treat! She made this adorable miniature fairy garden. I have made things for my garden before like this garden art, but never anything like this!
The details are amazing!
Every little twig carefully put together to form the furniture for the fairies.
I canopy bed complete with mosquito netting.
I loved all the details like the clay flowers on the arbor.
I enjoyed seeing another side of her. I knew she was creative but never seen anything like this.
I had to share it with you.
Isn't it just adorable?
Reminds me of my Barbie Days..... making furniture
I really enjoyed our day together. Even read what I wrote in her yearbook.
You know "Friends Forever" and all that stuff.
Who knew back then that we would still be laughing and making memories?
A good friend is hard to find! When you have one like that you put it in a special place and treasure it.
like a fairy in the garden
Thanks for being here friends!
