Way back at Christmastime, John took off on his own to do a little shopping for yours truly. He headed to terrain knowing that he'd have his pick of gifties that he knew I'd like. In my glowing review of this store before, I told you all about their section of terrarium supplies. And you know I love me a terrarium. And John knows too because he hooked me up with a sweet little "vessel" (big glass jar) as well as some giant tweezers that you use to move your tiny plants and things around down there. He's awesome. He also bought me a terrarium class and made sure I called up my best blog girl LB to come with me. She obliged and off we went this past weekend.
Now this isn't my first time showing up to the terrarium-making party. I made quite a few of them awhile back but only used plants I found in my yard. This time I was going to do it up right and not just wing it...as I have a tendency to do. So terrain has a huge selection of teeny little plants and flowers and both LB and I chose some hot pink action to grace our vessels. You were able to grab as many plants as you wanted them bring them over to the workshop and plant & pay for what you used. We learned that when in doubt, use less.
LB bought a pretty sweet container while we were there. It's a hanging orb of sorts that she plans to hang in a window.
There were some interesting choices in vessels by some of the other folks. One guy brought an aquarium. The guy next to him brought something that can only be described as an 80's chandalier. Brass and glass. Glass and brass. Either way, I expected seeing it hanging in a foyer.
You're just the cutest little plant, I could just pinch you!
So thank you John, you sure know how to make my dreams of filling the house with little woodland treasures in jars come true. And if any of you guys have a hankering for building your own terrarium, I did a little tutorial of sorts way back when. They're super easy and amp up the cuteness in your house.
