Bringing Spring Inside: Terrariums

As made obvious by our last few posts, Rebecca and I are longing for spring.  But where Rebecca has a good eye and a green thumb, I'm lucky that my daughter has survived this long*, let alone any plants that I may try to grow.  But that doesn't stop me from trying (as evidenced by my poor little lemon tree who is currently clinging to life as we speak).  I figure that winter is not quite over yet, so actual gardening is out of the question right now, but I can alleviate my desire to grow things with a terrarium.  Not only are they beautiful, but, bonus- they are pretty self-reliant (much like my daughter).  Here are a few that I have my eye on.  I see a diy project in my near future!

How sweet is this re-purposed French-press (mmmm, coffee!) from 1001 Gardens?!  I love it, especially with the little wildlife grazing in the greenery.

This one is entitled "Uncharted Territory" and is perfect for the adventurers out there.  It is available by the terrarium artists extraordinaire over at Twig.  They will also create custom terriums for you, upon request.

I just love all of these; I have always loved miniature things, so I guess it is really no surprise that these are right up my alley.  And the ladies over at Twig are ridiculously talented, making world after perfect little world.  They even have kits for sale so you can create your own.
Or, in case you are interested, here are some instructions to help you make your own terrarium.  I think it would be a fun way to spend what's supposed to be a very rainy Saturday!
I hope you have a fantastic weekend,

*I am completely kidding about my daughter surviving this long- I love my kiddo and take every step I can to ensure that she is well taken care of and loved.

  2. I have wanted a terrarium for the longest time. I may be redecorating my office at work in the upcoming weeks. Maybe I will finally get one then.

  3. The french press terrarium is actually from www.leveloneteam.tumblr.com

    It is my own work and has been posted on 1001 Gardens with no proper link to its original source.
