Mother's Day Terrariums

All because I found a 
centerpiece brandy sniffer at a garage sale. . .

I stopped after work at a garage sale and picked up a $2.00 brandy sniffer 
because I thought it would make a great terrarium.    The elf above is another garage sale find.

I came home and talked my son and husband into going to the plant store to make a it a family project.  Unfortunately, our local greenhouse didn't have miniature plants. 

However, I told my husband if he would go back to the garage sale and pick up the other two brandy sniffers they had for sale, I'd make our mom's each a terrarium for Mother's Day.

Since he hates going to garage sales, I was surprised to get a call at work that he actually had gone and bought the other two!

A garden center near my work had a terrific selection of small plants.
My son and the kitty helped put together our presents.

They were so easy.  Layer of rock, layer of soil, plants, and moss.  Done.
Now I want to make MORE.
