Terrarium In A Jar

During the winter months, I like to have fresh flowers and green plants around the house to remind us of the promise of Spring.

{While I'm away on Christmas vacation, please enjoy this 2011 post re-run}

This weekend, I made a trip to the greenhouse.

 I found a Rosemary "tree" half-off.  The scent is fabulous. 
It will be great for cooking too. 

I also fell in love with this sweet little plant, Baby Tears...awe. 
I had to buy it just for the name. 

I've been wanting to put together a few Terrariums.
Like this:

I went thrifting in search of glass cloches.
No luck, they were either not available or too expensive.

I went home a little disappointed and then it came to me.
 I had a few glass jars stashed away...

and the little plants fit in them perfectly.

With the exception of the plants, I was able to assemble my Terrariums using what I already had.  
Don't you just love it when that happens?

In Michigan, a little bit of green goes a long way.
Thanks for visiting.  


  1. Very pretty! I love the baby tears!

  2. I have each one of the plants you posted except the baby tears. I have to have live plants and love to group them together in one larger container. I have not done a terrariums in ages - yours looks great I think I will give it a try after I clear out the Christmas decor.
    you always have such great ideas - thanks for sharing.

  3. How long can you keep the lid on the terrarium before you have to let air in?
