*I have always loved terrariums, like little, tiny, worlds trapped in a jar. But they all seem to be pretty expensive, so I thought I’d attempt to make some for myself. I had a few large, antique, ball jars that I had collected and I thought they just might work. Below is how I did it…
Start with some oversized ball jars and fill the bottom with an inch or two of small rock rocks.
After adding your plants to the jar, take the lid and drill a large hole in the center slightly larger then the width of the rope you will use to hang the jars with. Then drill three smaller holes around the larger one for air flow.
After your holes are drilled, slip your rope through the larger hole from the top and tie a tight knot on the bottom side. Then close the lid on your jar and we are almost done…
Finally take some screw hooks and securely screw them into the ceiling. Tie a noose knot with the end of your rope and hang your finished hanging terrariums at different heights for all to see and enjoy. To water your plants simply unscrew your lid and pour in some water.
*As many of you might know, I was in California a couple of weeks ago helping out with a sales trip for work, and I’ve been promising these pictures for far too long.
The Pink Taco, pretty gross name for a restaurant but pretty great restaurant to eat at. Yum ^_^.
I fell in love with Venice and its adorable little beach bungalows.
I also fell in love with California’s plant life. This giant weird tree was covered in intimidating thorns and spikes, like a massive rose steam.
We got to eat at some amazing restaurants while we were there. I even got to try my very first oyster! You’d think, living with a fish monger, I would have already done that…
Doesn’t it look like coral!
We got a chance to check out Gallery 1988’s new Venice location, and I picked up a copy of the Cult Movie Art book for my parents!
We bought these amazing Harry and the Hendersons trading cards, out of a weird vending machine, at a bar, in Silver Lake called, Cha Cha. They even came with a complimentary stick of gum circa 1987, hard as a rock!
Andy, I’m sorry, I didn’t cheat…but I may have cuddled with this adorable mass of love, Rambo!
*A special thanks to Laura, for taking these pictures for me with her fancy Iphone. (Don’t worry I will be stepping into the 21st century come May)
And to Mandy, Pat, Rambo and my Kristin for showing us a great time!
…I miss you already California…
