Spring Terrarium

Miss E was up extra early today and the hubs
is off to Asheville to help at a wedding, so we
got started with the birds this morning.

I thought it would be the perfect day to try to
make a dent in my projects to-do list.

So off to Home Depot we went to get our supplies
to make our very own terrarium. I got the idea from

I'm not sure I got the right plants for this sort of
thing, but I really like how it turned out. Even
though mine is small, I think it adds a little
something to my sparse mantle. (We're keeping it
simple because our house is currently for sale.)

So, what do you think?
I added the ribbon and fabric flower to give
it a special decorative touch, which turned out
just the way I hoped it would.

**Did I mention my thumb isn't
even a SHADE of green?**

Lots more projects to think about, but while
Emma's napping I'm going to clean up a bit
and rest up. We've got a 2-year old party
to go to later and I think I'll need my energy.

Have a happy Saturday!


  1. I LOVE it! It's fabulous! It makes me want to go out and try my hand at it!

  2. Love this Teresa - I think it looks great! I love the added ribbon and flower - super cute! You need to link this up to tonights Sunday Showcase party if you get a chance! The plants look like they will do well. I really like the one in the center {do you know what the name of it is?} Thanks so much for sharing - love it! ~ Stephanie Lynn
