I made a terrarium today. It came out exactly like the picture in my head! I think the lack of wine while crafting added to the outcome. Ha!
I had two small orchids hanging out on my kitchen windowsill all summer long. I had one of them in a terrarium I made last year out of a goodwill find. It was the cutest glass jar with lid. I looked and looked for a picture of it with the lid on, but I guess I never took one. This will have to do.
That orchid lived in there about a year, but I knew it needed a new home when I brought home this guy.
Being the cheap bastard that I am, I knew I wasn’t going to run out and buy a big glass jar with a lid. Nooo. I was going to wait until the cutest most perfect jar appeared at Goodwill. It took a while, but I found it. It used to be a drink dispenser, but I just turned the spigot to the back. I’m clever like that. Snort.
So I filled that bad boy up with some rocks, pea gravel, a little activated charcoal, orchid mix, then the orchids. It looked a little bare in front so I ripped some moss off the ground from the front yard. Again with the clever! Sometimes I amaze myself. I added a tiny ceramic pony for the cute factor.
I was quite pleased. I plopped the lid on and put in on the kitchen counter. Many hours later I came back to find this.
What the fire truck is going on in there? What’s with all the lines? So I get reaaaal close. That’s when I discovered my leeetle friends.
I guess I’ll add snails to the list of pets in our house. Now, what exactly do I feed them?
