Indoor Garden Ideas- An Indoor Fairy Garden?

I have only two criteria for this project:
1) It had to have all the things basic to fairy gardens (house, plants, outdoor furniture & a fairy)
2) It had to fit in a small container (nothing bigger than a frisbee)

I considered many different containers but was having a hard time choosing between
EMF 6100-8 8" Bamboo Steamer Base | Nella Onlinethis or this  

I have both and they are around the same depth but I think the steamer is a little larger in size, on the other hand, the container has a solid bottom and the steamer doesn't so I would lose some depth using the steamer. Still haven't fully decided!

Once the base is decided on you build them up just like you would with a terrarium How-to-Build-a-Terrarium2
Once that is done you add your fairy decorations and you are done. I know that buying fairy garden stuff can get expensive so I've collected a whole bunch of DIY pins. Three actually: Fairy Doll, Fairy House & Fairy Furniture. There is also a fourth board that will spark ideas for design.

I guess I should give you a heads up, I don't know how long these boards will be available since they were created via a Google + account and they have closed that down. I am working at getting as much of the information moved to a new site but there are 240 boards to move with an average of 20 pins per board to move so it may take a while. The new location is cmarois6143.

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't.

If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time.

Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a fear of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic fears the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public.
Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment: Cognitive behavioral ther…

My Fair Lady

Eliza Doolittle Day is celebrated by fans of the musical My Fair Lady, a musical based off of George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play Pygmalion. In the musical, Eliza Doolittle is a Cockney flower girl who wants to learn to speak properly. At the time the story takes place, proper speech was a symbol of upward mobility and education. Eliza meets Professor Henry Higgins in Covent Garden and he agrees to give her elocution lessons. Higgins believes he can transform her from someone who uses words like "ain't" to someone who can fit in with London's elite.In the musical, Eliza dreams of meeting the king. She sings a song, "Just You Wait," to share her thoughts. It is in the song that the date for Eliza Doolittle Day comes from:One day I’ll be famous! I’ll be proper and prim; Go to St. James so often I will call it St. Jim! One evening the king will say: 'Oh, Liza, old thing, I want all of England your praises to sing. Next week on the twentieth of May I procla…

Women's Heart Health

February 1st - 7th is Women's Heart Health Awareness Week and I felt it would be remiss of me not to include some conversation about it here given that the professor suffered a heart attack a bit over two years ago and that I am a prime candidate.

Let us start with why I am a prime candidate - Obviously being 100 pounds overweight puts me in the high-risk area immediately. Add in High Chloresterol, physical inactivity, diabetes, post-menopausal and over 55. Since only two of those are needed to put me in the at-risk category that I have six means that I am very high risk. The only way it could be worse is if I still smoked or drank and still lived a high-stress life. Thank goodness for small miracles.
