I absolutely love terrariums. They are so earthy, so fresh, so charmingly cool to look at. I’m not much of an expert gardener either. That surprisingly enough is more of the husband’s territory. Recently I came across this darling terrarium at a nearby Salvation Army store. I think I got it for under $7! A few aisles away I say they also had a matching stand for the terrarium. Score! I can’t wait to figure out what to fill it up with
Warm Country Meadows has a darling DIY terrarium kit I have my eye on. If you want you own they are just $20. Not a bad deal considering it has just about everything one would need to start a terrarium and it even comes with a cute little mini mushroom!
I also fell in LOVE with this wonderful little terrarium kit called “World’s Away” from Augury It comes with complete directions and even the gorgeous glass orb
World’s Away Kit, $28 by Augury

Incandescent bulbs may be a thing of the past by 2012 due to a congressional mandate, and compact flourescents are poised to replace them. One artist however, is making sure that all those old incandescent bulbs aren’t just forgotten and thrown in the trash though.
SteamedGlass by Tim Witteveen, breathes new life into incandescent bulbs. Perhaps one of the most elaborate creations from this artist is “Professor Alexander’s Botanical Vasculum“ You simply must visit the shop to read Tim’s creative (and historic!) description of this organic work of art. It’s an incredibly detailed work with an adjustable magnifying glass, and even a solar powered LED bulb.
Professor Alexander’s Botanical Vasculum, $150
I am completely charmed by these unique works of art! While they are completely stunning, even more wonderful is the fact that Tim has taken recycled art to another level, and also incoporates actual living organic material inside!
