Eco gifts: beautiful pear terrarium
I don't know about you, but when I see things I like I make a mental snapshot to put in my mental "I'd Like to Have This Someday" list. So imagine with me, you are walking through the Tuesday Morning Close-Out Store, picking through all of the stuff in the bins. You move to let someone pass in the narrow isle, when you spot.....


YES!!!! I did a double take. It was a moment where I swear a light was shining down from heaven on these lovely pear terrariums. I almost knocked a woman over trying to get to them. And to my delight they WERE SO CHEAP!


They are not identical but I sort of love them even more than the ones at Viva Terra.
So, let's make some terrariums!
I washed mine out with soap and water before I started.


Put some rocks in the bottom for drainage. You don't want any weird, stinky water standing around.


I bought some baby succulents from Home Depot for a few dollars. I am seriously addicted to these little guys. Every time I go I get at least one. They are super easy to care for too, and because they like to stay on the dryer side, the rock drainage will help.


I put a little bit of soil in to see how much space I had to work with. You can always add more after you stick the plants in. Break up the roots a bit and plant them in their new pear shaped house!!


Viola!! How great are these?! Since planting, I've moved the little baby pear into my kitchen where he resides by the fruit bowl.
