~Wash Day in the Garden and Simple & Sweet Fridays#55~

It was wash day in the miniature garden today.

Even the fairies need to do some laundry.
Of course, I always find new things to add to the garden,
the herb garden rock,
the thrift sale truck,
the little blue teapot. 
It's fun looking for new treasures for the garden.

The clothesline is a fun addition to the miniature garden.

I had to share some photos of our wisteria in bloom this year.
One is next to our house.
We also have one up on our hill.
So beautiful.
I had to share it with you!

Hope you all had a great week creating new things.
Can't wait to see what you've been working on!
Thanks again for sharing all your inspiring projects!

Happy Thursday everyone!

    Thanks so much for hosting!!


  18. What gorgeous wisteria and lovely bits out on the clothesline today!! (Says I who just came in from shovelling during a blizzard.) Great features too. Have a super weekend!! :)

  19. I SO want to be sitting in your magical garden - instead of putting a winter coat on still to step outside!
    THANKS SO MUCH for the feature Jodi - I'm more than honored -
    and thanks for hosting another great party!
    Much love,

  20. Hi, your garden is gorgeous. Thanks for hosting this party...Connie

  21. Oh I just love your mini garden!! I did a fairy garden for the first time last year and I'm hooked. Not sure mine will expand as big as yours but it is an inspiration. I have spring fever and posted about my garden from last year. Thanks for hosting, Laura

  22. Hi Jody!
    Your garden is absolutely amazing. The wisteria is so lush. How fortunate that you live in a climate that gives you an earlier Spring. I love your cute little clothesline. It's one that your fairies can use. Your garden is a wonderland filled with so many sweet touches.

    I am honored to have my cottage guest room chosen as one of your features this week. Even though red is my favorite color I consider my guest room as my favorite room in my home. I love slipping away and catching a nap in the soft pastel surroundings. Thank you, Jody.

    Have a lovely weekend, my dear friend and thanks again for thinking of me.
    Carolynn xoxo

  26. Jody, I just had to share a story with you that came to mind when I saw your beautiful wisteria. I had a vine that we inherited with this house...and it NEVER bloomed. I read somewhere that it had to be distressed to bloom so..I got a baseball bat and whacked that vine several times...and the very next BLOOMED!! probably out of fear of being whacked again..LOL this is a great party..on my way to get my post so I can link up too....happy gardening to you..

  27. This is so beautiful. I have to share this with my mum as she has a little fairie glen at the bottom of her garden and she has a miniature washing line too! She will love this. Have a great weekend. Chel x

  28. Hi Jody! Thank you so much for the party, I'm a new follower and I'm looking forward to future posts! Have a great weekend!

  29. Spring break is just a week away and I see myself in the garden copying some of your ideas. Thanks for hosting the party.

  30. Your miniature garden is so precious, Jody! I have that sweet little Hummel -- little girl with the geese. It had belonged to my sweet MIL, and I'm lucky enough to have several pieces from her large collection. Love the wisteria. I saw some at a garden nursery yesterday and would love to figure out a good place to plant one here. You had some wonderful features from last week, and I cannot wait to check them out. Thanks so much for hosting!
