Why go out into that June heat to admire a garden when you could look at one under glass from the comfort of your own home. I’m talking about terrariums people and in case you have not noticed they are all the rage. Apparently terrariums never actually go out of style because I have combed through my stash of vintage craft, decorating and gardening books to find primo examples from as far back as the 50’s. Our journey back in terrarium time kicks off a week long celebration of our favorite mini eco-systems in a jar. Tomorrow look for a fun how-to with fry baskets (OK not a terrarium, but equally cute), Wednesday we have a terrarium web roundup, Thursday is I Love to Create with a faux terrarium shadow box picture frame and we wrap things up Friday with shopping for terrarium goodies.
Dang that is a whole lot of terrarium goodness!
