Tiny Terrariums

While doing some 'window' shopping on Etsy (My favorite haunt) I found these wonderful little terrariums. I've tried to make a few myself, but have always used orchids (which I promptly kill... I'm a serial orchid killer).

madebymavis on has created this little beauty, and has several for sale. I've also heard (although I can't confirm) through the grapevine that she's very open to giving you suggestions and helping you create your own little paradise.

I'm going moss hunting this weekend!

wow. flashback! I grew up in my grandmothers house and there was a giant one of these that my aunt had made in the 60's or 70's and it was about 12" of layers, she had little grass sprout shapes and then little ceramic frogs on top. Being a stupid dumb kid I of course played with the frogs which consequently effed up the whole terrarium.
hahhaa, thanks for reminding me that I really should make one for her, lol.

Ha. I too confess to being a serial orchid killer. Although, I tell myself that they're committing suicide. This terrarium actually looks do-able for me :)
