research on them and collected the best advice I found into the
blog post "Terrarium Tips".  I show pictures of how I but the
tips into action in making terrariums for my own home. 

If having to maintain real terrariums is not your thing, here is

  1. Woke early this morning and was browsing blogs, found yours on the 'Sea Witches' site. I love both of you blogs, hers for her prose and images. And yours for your tutorials. My absolute favorite is your sea fan from cedar branches and also your aged paper wreath. I will be attempting both. Thank you for sharing and your detailed tutorials. I am a fan....


Thank you SO MUCH for taking the time to comment on my blog!
