Terrarium Tuesday

 Today was Terrarium Tuesday!

So my friend Andi had a few of us over for lunch and to make terrariums today!

She made a yummy Chinese Chicken Salad for us. You know it's tasty when everyone has seconds!

Andi invited us a few weeks ago so we all had plenty of time to gather our terrarium ingredients. It was fun to see what we each "brought to the table" for the project.

Yes these are funky cell phone photos, they are all I have

Andi picked up a super cool glass bowl at World Market to use for her terrarium. It has a concrete base.....darn it I didn't get a good picture to show the base of her bowl. The picture below is Andi's terrarium. She made great use of all her goodies!!

Next (in the photo below) is Darby's terrarium. She has had her terrarium container for awhile. I really wanted Darby's container after I saw it. Isn't this great??

In the photo below is Paula's planter. She had picked out a terrarium container similar to Darby's to use. Then as she was backing out of her garage to come to Andi's she spotted this cool vintage teapot a friend had given her years ago, and inspiration struck!! So her terrarium became a container. We all love how unique it is!!!

Hey I just noticed that you can see the concrete base of Andi's container in the upper right corner of the picture below!!

Lastly in the photo below is my "terrarium."  The idea to use a birdcage was inspired by a picture my sister sent me.  I love the way it turned out!!!

Thank you Andi, what a fun day it was!

I hope the dirt I spilled cleaned up OK..........
