We are definitely in the thick of my least favorite season, and I'm in need of some sunshine in my life! Anybody with me?
I found this gem on Pinterest the other week, and have been craving green plants ever since. I have plants in my house, but most of them aren't really doing anything exciting. Even though my orchid has been working on a flower stem for a few months, it's slow going.
So, when I happened to find myself in Homegoods this weekend (am I the only one who runs out for something totally unrelated and just ends up there?), I happened to find a few terrariums! I picked up some generic succulents from Home Depot and ran home with my green goodies.
Here's one terrarium that I picked up:
And here it is once I stuffed it full!
Doesn't it just look happy??
The other terrarium I bought is a little more like the picture I shared, but that one just has some decorations in it for now. I want to fill it with something a little more special.
Also, remember that slow-growing orchid I mentioned? The day I brought these home, he also opened his first blossom! I guess he didn't want to be outdone! :)
Usually I think of orchids as delicate and beautiful, but this seems to have a ferocious side:
See?! Doesn't it look a little monster-like? Maybe it shares my hatred of winter?
Anyway, hope you all are finding little ways to brighten up your life in these dreary months too!
One last note- you'll probably notice that my posts will not feature any really large projects for a couple months. I'm once again in a busy season of life, and so the projects I can take on right now are a little smaller (notice the large pile of textbooks in the background of the first picture...). Believe me, I'll be back to heavy duty DIYing in late April. Until then, I hope you will also enjoy some smaller ideas!
