It's been sunny and warmer here for the last fews days and it's taken me a mere twenty-four hours to dispel any lingering thoughts of winter. I've started thinking about plants and flowers and ways to bring nature indoors. I have some great containers and display stands that I received for Christmas, along with a cache of garden cloches and interesting jars to create terrariums. The IKEA window boxes that I left outside to age are finally weathered enough and I'll bring them indoors to plant wheatgrass in...Can you tell I'm ready for spring? I bet you are, too - which makes it a perfect time to create indoor gardens.
I received this terrarium for Christmas and I'm completely smitten with it. It would be easy enough to etch the type on a jar, but there's something about the metal lid that I love. It's all about the details!
Another of my treasured gifts from Mothology. I think this is the perfect way to use it for spring and I've got just the right vintage pots for it.
I think this apothecary jar terrarium from Terrain is lovely, but check your bargain stores first! I find apothecary jars (and cloches) all the time at TJ Maxx and Marshall's.
I love these vintage pickling jars from Pottery Barn and I like the open effect of the jar - a nice twist on the typical terrarium.
If you decide to go the terrarium route, there are plenty of tutorials online, like this one from Design Sponge.
Have a wonderful weekend!
