...I just adore apothecary jars
~ 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 ~
early this week
I will be posting about my new pink aviary!!!!
