I am not the gardening type...hate bugs, but I do love plants and flowers. When all the green is gone from the trees, I have to go out and buy some new plants for inside my home.
I had a glass bowl, a rusted lantern I picked up at an estate sale, and hit our local florist for some small plants and one fern.
I planted the fern in an old bowl I had and placed the lantern in the center. The lantern has a long screw sticking out from the bottom which is what started the idea of adding to a plant. All I had to do was
stick it in the dirt.
Then I added a cream candle in a
shallow candle holder and placed it
inside the lantern.
Next I added 3 different smaller plants in one pot to create a simple arrangement.
Then I worked on my favorite idea.
I found this florist in Paris through Pinterest that makes terrariums that are so sweet. I was thrilled when I found a oversized glass bowl at a thrift store for $3 so I could try it myself.
It was so simple...I added 2 small plants purchased for $1.45 each and one miniature African Violet that cost $3.
I mixed the height, color, and textures of the greenery to make each plant stand out.
Then I added some river rocks and
litle bits of moss.
Having the green back and these
sweet little flowers
makes me feel happy!
