It’s a Spring Thing Link Party (and a Spring Terrarium)

While Mother Nature is taking care of bringing green back outdoors, I’m adding a little green to our indoor space. Now, I don’t have much of a green thumb but ever since I scored this beautiful Victorian-style terrarium/miniature greenhouse at an antique shop, I’ve been wanting to create a small fairy garden.

Putting it together: Because my terrarium base is a wooden tray, I kept my plants in individual containers. I started by lining the bottom of my terrarium with foil topped with moss. I potted the small house plants in pretty planters and placed them throughout my terrarium. Since my plants aren’t of the flowering variety, I added spring color with a floral pick from Jo-Ann Fabrics. Pebbles create a winding path. Then ‘decorated’ with my accessories.

Aren’t the fairies sweet?

It’s not easy photographing glass. 🙁

Finally, I got to add the beautiful terrarium top…

I keep the terrarium in our sitting room where it gets plenty of sun and do remember to water the plants about once a week and a month later – they’re still alive! Maybe I’ll be a gardener yet!

It’s no secret around here that I’m suffering from spring fever.
