Granite Setts are incredibly hard wearing, making them a great choice for high traffic areas such as pathways like in this garden pathway design by Thorburn Landscapes. Nice design to use for narrow patio area outside french windows.
Elf house on a tree! That would be cute in the garden, especially in the tree over grown with ivy. How about some battery tea lights in the windows during outdoor parties. I hear the fairies/elves whispering "home school project" in my ear.
