We are a small family business based in MD Foothills, serving Calgary, Foothills, Okotoks, Dewinton and surrounding area. I say we as everyone in my family is involved in some way. My husband and sons run errands, help with heavy lifting, and assist with all things mechanical (my husband tells me that I am mechanically challenged and I am especially grateful for this help). My mom and dad are quality control and every piece is approved by them before going to market.
After 25 years in the Finance and Investment industry I found myself at crossroads due to corporate restructuring. Initially I had mixed feeling about this change but soon came to realize this was SERENDIPITY and I had just been handed a once in a lifetime opportunity to reinvent my career path. I was very lucky to be able to combine two of my passions - gardening and design. I now spend my days tending my garden (in Southern Alberta this means indoor gardening for 7 months of the year) and creating whimsical gardens and terrariums.
Our gardens are fairy gardens with a twist - many years ago when I built my first miniature garden I referred to it as a fairy garden and my youngest son asked, "Why is there no fairy?", I explained to him that's because only gnomes can see fairies. This theme stuck, thus, you will never find a fairy in any of our gardens.
Each and every time I finish a piece it brings a smile to my face and hope that it also brings a smile to the face of everyone that makes a purchase or receives one as a gift. We would love to hear from you and encourage you to let us know if your garden or terrarium makes you smile.
