green under glass...









It might be because I'm currently obsessed with glass containers.

Or it might be that I want to bring a little more greenery inside this winter.

either way...

I want to put together a few terrariums...

I love terrariums too. I recently did a post and made up a few of my own. Unfortunately they didn't live, but they were so lovely while they did. Guess I need to do a little more research on creating the right environment next time. Good luck with yours, I can't wait to see them...I'm so craving some green myself. Hugs-Carrie

Check out the offerings at West Elm. They have some beautiful, simple glass cloche-like containers right now and some equally lovely putty colored pottery bases.
These are just gorgeous.

Oh, try succulents under glass but in a bright spot in your home. They are SOOOOO easy and look so "cottagy" and modern at the same time. The trick is the light. They must have it! The beauty is they hate to be watered. Yes!

You are so right! In the middle of winter, I long for something, anything green! These would be perfect!!

Happy Tuesday my Dear! xo

I really like the looks of showing off objects in glass too. I tried a twist on this idea. I recently bought some Asian looking lanterns with glass sides. I placed my antique Japanese teapots, one in each of them. I wanted to move away from having clusters of knicknacks. I love it! So many ideas from bloggers!

Yes, bring the green in my friend!I have always loved terrariums and apotechary jars. A very elegant way of displaying plants and branches.

Tons of hugs,

I love terrariums, there are also perfect in a living space. I want to do a large one with an orchid inside.
