Ahhh, I believe in the States they're called Popsicles.


They are indeed, though that's the brand name.
It's similar to how we call tissues Kleenex and bandages Bandaids.
Technically we supposedly call them "ice pops" but no one actually does.

We also have creamsicles, which are popsicles with vanilla ice cream in the middle.
Not sure if we export them over there or not, but they're quite tasty.

We are? Never heard of it. :)

Love the ideas so far! :D Well, most of the ideas. :? :lol: We did try to make a fence with popsicle sticks, but it didn't survive the weather. Love the sign though! We'd just have to make it out of something sturdier. Here's a picture:

That's lovely, but you need some miniature trees I think. :D Maybe some bushy shrubs that look like fairy-sized trees. And plant some mossy type things in between those stones. How about some curly-leafed parsley. That would look quite exotic I think.

We did try moss around the stones, but it was too dry and sunny there. Just wouldn't take. There are these little succulent plants called hens and chickens (I think?). Thought we might try those. Wish the little house were bigger so that I could put a few things in to make it look like a fairy has moved in. It's actually a birdhouse. I got that instead of one of the fairy houses for two reasons. First, it was made to be outdoors. And second, it has a door that actually opens! It bugs me to no end that the fairy houses for sale have fake doors! :| How are they supposed to get in?

My kids used to spend hours making fairy gardens. That's really sweet. Coloured cocktail umbrella's taped to wooden skewers can make a groovy umbrella forest. They don't do so well if it rains though.
Solar lights would look a treat.

Anyway, hope you have fun.

You're diabolical btw Batty.

Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

What about a shop that sells furniture for dolls houses?
ImageYou could place tiny chairs or furniture amongst the plants?
