Last week I was out shopping and came across this cute little glass jar. Well, it was fifty percent off so naturally I put it in my cart and off I went. I have been wanting to make a terrarium for some time now. You see I cannot keep a house plant alive and someone told me that these little fellas are foolproof. So I am stepping out in faith.

Today I went out and bought the plants and soil along with gravel and charcoal. First I layered a little bit of the gravel, then came the charcoal (I found both of these at the pet store), some soil and then last but not least the plants.

What do you think?


  1. It looks cute!

    Thank you for coming over and the congrats on my store! I'm so excited and it's wonderful to have the support here in blogland!

  2. I love it! So beautiful! Do you remember making them in school? I vaguely do... I think my favorite part was putting those little ceramic animals in there that you use to get in tea and making it look like a mini enviroment.
    That was funny about giving the colt a hot sudsy bath! lol I can just see that now. LIke bathing a cat with it's two wildcat parents clinging to your arms... I wonder how dirty the water would be?!?! lol
    Great project, beautiful containter. Half price? wow!~ My kind of shopper. Do you have Tuesday Mornings where you live?

  3. HI there! I wanted to stop by and say thanks for following my blog. I looked back a some of your older posts. Your quilt blocks are beautiful!! And Libby looks like a little sweetie!

  4. Hi
    Thanks for dropping by my blog. I like Libby already and hope we can be friends. My mom is a christian too and like you she cant keep anything alive either. LOL She has a craft site so I will have her get that to you too.


  5. Hey Nancy, Thanks for comming over to donnasbusyhands. I have read some of your past posts and will continue to follow you on your everyday adventures. Love the terrarium. Hope you will not water it to death like I once did. Hugs, Donna

  6. I have faith this is going to grow for you and you won't be giving a plant funeral anytime soon. Hope you will keep us updated on its progress.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and following. It is wonderful to make new friends, especially those who follow Christ.

  8. That is the cutest thing! What a great idea...I've seen them but never tried one. I'd like to put one on an end table just like you did. Any watering to do? Keep a pic update of it! ;0)
