...sooooo it seems "terrariums" are becoming really popular again....what goes around comes around is certainly true! I made my first (and only) terrarium 40 years ago. I keep seeing terrariums being advertised in different catalogs. Some of my friends, from a retail blog that I am on, have been selling these bobbles for a while now. (I am always a step behind)!! So I decided I would give it a try again - in (of all things) a clear Christmas ball.
The scavanger in me - went outside - stoled some soil from a summer pot - some moss from under a tree - and the tinest little sprig of johhny-jump-up that was still alive. (my johnnies are still blooming)! After "maneuvering" them into the tiny hole in the Christmas ball, I hung it in a window at the store....two weeks and still thriving!! Maybe my thumb is starting to turn green after all this time!!
