Terrariums on EtsyPosted: January 26, 2010 Filed under: Treasure Island 1 Comment
I like the idea of a terrarium – but am too cheap to buy one and too lazy to make one (let alone care for one, regardless of how “easy” they are). Instead I’ve been admiring some of the best, in my opinion, available on Etsy.
By the way, the Romgi just referred to terrariums as “fancy Chia Pets.”
You may have noticed that I don’t care much for the embellished terrariums – which often include miniature gnomes, deer, toadstools, etc. This is a good example of one I dislike.
(You may have also noticed that the square terrarium costs $300. That’s why it appeared in this post instead of its own Today’s Gift post. I’m so considerate!)
I like those teacup ones. Terrariums (Terraria??) were very popular when I was at BYU. Especially really big ones where you had to have special equipment to place things–like building a ship really in the bottle. I learned early on that I had neither the dexterity nor the horticultural sense to make it work.
