{Thursday} Terrific Terrariums

Thursday, 12 July 2012

For the apartment dweller who may lack the space (or skills) to cultivate a full container garden, a low-maintenance terrarium may be just the thing to inject some greenery into your home. 

The process is fairly simple -- selecting a unique container; layering rocks, Spanish moss, and potting soil; and then arranging a collection of small plants and objects inside the container to your liking. But if you're more of a social learner like me, ARTiculations (an art venue in the Junction) is hosting the Miracle Thieves for a terrarium building workshop on Wednesday, July 25th from 7-9 pm.  The cost is $30.00 per person and the event is a fun way to spend a girls' or date night out while making use of all those quirky Kinder Surprise toys you've accumulated over the years.  

Not sure if you ready to take on the responsibility of plant ownership?  Well you're in luck since Oregon-based stationary shop Quill & Fox offers a beautiful collection of terrarium postcards too. 

Priced at $2.25/each or a set of 4 for $8.00, these full colour prints on matte-coated white card stock would look lovely framed and displayed in a library, sun nook, or wherever else your future terrarium may live. 

Until next time, happy planting!
