Sometimes you just get the urge to make a mini terrarium, you know? Like yesterday, when I was meandering through the lighting department at my home improvement store, and spotted the exact glass-pendant-light-cover-thingy that Flickr member gemmafactrix had used quite some time ago to make her mini terrarium. Unfortunately, her pics seem to have vanished from her Flickr account, but I always thought her mini terrariums were so cute and clever, and I've been meaning to rip off her design for-EVER! Next stop was the gardening department where I purchased one of those terra cotta-underneath-the-flower-pot-tray-thingers (for the amount of time I spend in the home improvement store, you'd think I'd have acquired a better vocabulary by now...), a variety pack of mini succulents, and some "dish garden topping" (yes, that's actually what it's called). So, over coffee this morning, I whipped up a mini terrarium! Now let's hope it doesn't die. And if you're one of those Green Thumbs who just took one look at it and spotted the fatal flaw, so you know already that it's gonna die for some reason...don't tell me just yet, ok? I still want a little time to revel in the cuteness.
