Elliot and I decided to make some terrariums, so last week we headed out to our local plant store and picked out some nice specimens. It took us a whole week to gather the supplies (giant jars and dinos from Target, everything else besides plants from Downtown Home & Garden), and we put them together this morning. I really struggle with houseplants because I am fickle with a short attention span, but I have great hope for these because I read online that most terrariums fail due to over watering. Well, they clearly haven't met me. (Husband chuckles)
The dinos were originally intended for a paludarium in Elliot's room, but he wanted them in the kitchen, and actually I quite like them. Elliot and my husband (do I ever say his name? his name is Scott) ran to Target for one more dino and a smaller jar for his room. I would show you a photo of that one, but its rest time, and of course, one does not interrupt rest time.
Science is so cool, why did my teachers have to make it so dang boring?
This one is my favorite. I love the way that guy looks like he's eating the plant. Scott says this one doesn't eat plants. I say only boys care about such details.
I keep forgetting to tell you, a local friend of mine started a blog, and she is super sweet as well as the queen of crochet. Check it out...here.
Update: These jars are the 2 gallon Heritage Collection at Target (by Anchor Hocking) for $12.99. They are around 13" tall. They are in the kitchen department, and there are many others there that would also work. I chose these because they looked vintage, instead of looking like they were "trying to look vintage, but not quite."
