This book looks fantastic. I bought teeny little deer and even teenier little mushrooms last month, and when Brandon saw and asked me about them, I sheepishly told him that I was going to make a terrarium for Eleanor. I think he thought I had gone a little nuts. I’m going to need this book for some inspiration (and to show him that terrariums can be cool).
p.s. The publisher is having a giveaway for Terrarium Craft, along with a DIY terrarium kit here until June 30.

Hello! I’ve made terrariums since I was 13 years old. They are beautiful gardens planted inside unique glass containers and are self-sustaining if done right. Have fun!

I love teeny tiny terrariums, but I never seem to think of them except when I’m drooling over someone’s!

I am ALL about terrariums. I’ve blogged about them in the past and coincidentally I have a blog about them coming out in the next day or so. I’m totally hooked! Can’t wait to see what you make =)

Oh, I too slip into shy and sheepish when discussing what seem like random objects for somewhat-unspecified upcoming projects!
“Honey, why do we have all of these clear cylinders? Aren’t these what your prunes come in?”
Me: “Yes . . . they’re going to BE something . . . something very pretty . . .”

This is so cute! Love it. I completely understand your sheepish grin to Brandon thing – I will have to start secretly collecting for my own mini terrarium :)

I made three terrariums last month :) and have been checking out etsy for miniature pieces to put in them. I haven’t splurged yet; I haven’t found the perfect items. :) This book looks awesome!

Hmmm. I might need a bit of convincing, too. But I am excited to see what you create.

They just covered Terrariums on CBS Sunday Morning; check out artist Paula Hayes. Some really amazing stuff.

Oooh, so happy to hear this! We just built one not too long ago!
And then it died, and then we resurrected it :)
Can’t wait to see yours!

Awesome! Glad to hear you resurrected it. It’s too good to have been a loss.

I love terrariums! There was a whole piece on them on CBS Sunday Morning recently. Awesome!!

I have such a weakness for these things! I should really make one for myself :)

I’ve been looking for a glass container for a bit now to make the perfect terrarium in. + I need to find objects to put it them. Where’d you find your mushrooms & deer?

An Etsy shop: Caramelos.
