Finding spring blooms...

I miss flower beds...there I said it. I think I even miss weeding! Here on the hill we just have mud. I used to work in a greenhouse and I had a big yard so spring was a busy time. But now I must go in search of spring blooms. My sis Tami said she had snowdrops so I sneaked over to her beautiful garden and took a few pics. You may know her as theladyinthestonehouse. There I found snowdrops, crocuses and helleborus. I added my own little tiny props to the shots:) Happy Spring!!

It's called a terrarium...

You will need:
-a terrarium container, you can find these at TJ maxx, thrift stores and garage sales.
-potting soil
-rocks of varying sizes
-moss, Hana and I went out and harvested moss and sticks.
-plants. I love the maiden hair fern in mine. I got it at Safeway.
-mini stuff, There is tiny stuff for your terrarium for sale on etsy.com.
Some of the miniatures we bought on etsy. Also we gathered some sea glass and small shells last summer at Birch Bay so anything goes.
I love the three kinds of moss Hana used in hers. She took these pictures. Lovely.
We are no experts at making terrariums. But it was fun making them together. I just love my crafty little daughter:)
