...my Sunday project ~

...I just adore apothecary jars
Don't you??!

~ and there simply is no limit to what they can hold inside!
I'm loving how this terrarium turned out!
who knew a few pebbles (one the very bottom for drainage)
 some charcoal (the kind you use in fish aquariums you find at the pet store,
spinkled on the pebbles so your rotting plant leaves don't mildew!!)
some nice organic soil and lovely green plants (all from my local hardware store ~
what? ~ aren't you curious how your beloved can spend soooooo much time in there?!
I usually head to the plants OR the paint chip isle...
I just can't help myself and often wonder how one lands that job
you know, naming all the pretty paint colors?!!!)
back to the terrarium! 
and of couse my apothecary just wouldn't be complete without a little whimsy
so a fairy sits inside with a toadstool table!!

If you'd like to try your hand at your very own mini wonderland ~
may I suggest one very helpful book:
The New Terrarium: Creating Beautiful Displays for Plants and Nature
by: Tovah Martin

very inspiring indeed!!!

Well, that's all for now ~
but ~
early this week
I will be posting about my new pink aviary!!!!

come again, as I sooo enjoy when you stop by for a visit :)



  1. Oh Rosemary...this is lovely! I am so hooked on these jars.

    Have a lovely rest of the week!


  2. Your terrarium turned out wonderfully! I am glad you had such a wonderful time with your mom visiting. What magical times you must have had!

    And you have a pink aviary? I can't wait to see that!

  3. I have many empty jars, I need to fill. Now where do I find the time? LOL Thank you for sharing your beautiful creation with us. I once saw a bit of moss in my back yard and now it's gone. I should have grabbed it up.

  4. Hi Rosemary,

    Thank you for visiting my site & glad you like the giveaway - it does look yummy!!

    Love what you did with the apothecary jar. I have alot of those at home & fill them with lots of different shells. They're so fun!!

    Have a great day,

  5. I love the way that you fill it and looks so pretty. I know you had a good visit with your mom. Didn't the time just fly by. Have a wonderful day.


be kind ~ be graceful ~ be beautiful ~ be you!
