What I Heart Now: Terrariums

Winter gardens is what they call them – terrariums. Call them what you want but in my dictionary, they’re called gardens-that-keep-me-from-being-a-total-and-complete-bitch-from-December-through-April. It’s kind of a long name, somewhat of a run-on sentence, but when I’m a bitch, anything goes. Capiche?

Back to terrariums. Winter gardens as you call them have been on my mind lately. Why? Because in addition to my main role as a “professional blogger” (seriously. I love my job), another one of my roles is to schedule and attend workshops that my company hosts every Friday during “lunch” (we fashion folk don’t really take lunch). Hair braiding, fish deboning, martial arts, scrapbooking, the workshops cover it all (if you follow me on Instagram, you probably have noticed that I upload photos of me attending workshops and how-to’s OFTEN. This is why). Recently and coincidentally, many of our workshops have been about gardening – Kokedama string gardens, mounted staghorn ferns, etc. Getting my hands dirty in the subject and hobby, literally, makes me think that maybe I can do this whole planting thing. Having greenery in my apartment during the upcoming treacherous winter months might keep my spirits up. I should at least give it a whirl, eh?

    Those are beautiful! I have a soft spot for succulents. I’m following you on instagram now. I’m so jealous of your lunchtime workshops!

    I’ve been looking into making one for our home too! I’d really like a big, low one for our coffee table. Now to find a fun container for it, and of course picking out all the plants.

    I’m a big fan of indoor plants. I really love to putter around my house on a saturday and water them, pick off dead growth, trim… Succulents (like those in the terrariums) are SUPER easy to keep! And also really easy to sprout new plants from the clippings – so you could just buy one terrarium and then make new ones from those plants!

    I love these! I should probably invest in some plant life for the cold Minneapolis winter months. I also continue to love your job, too. Professional blogging sounds so amazing! As do those workshops that you get to take every Friday!

    wow, these are so cute! I once tried to make a terrarium necklace, but it broke after one day πŸ™ but I will make another one now! And the second picture is totally awesome! When I was a child, I always made little terrariums with ants or bugs in it. I have been fascinated by terrariums as long as I can remember! (:

    I love making Terrariums! I think succulents are just so fun and uniquely beautiful. It was my favorite part of my job to use different containers to create little gardens and they don’t need too much tender care.
