    I actually found these exact vases at Tuesday Morning after eying them on the VivaTerra website. I got a large one for $12, medium for $8, and small for $4. What a steal! Now I am just trying to find some good terrarium tutorials…

  3. Nikki says:

    Oh my goodness I never knew terrariums could be so cool, I love these!

  4. You certainly do love terrariums! And I can see why–these pear ones are gorgeous!
    What kind of sand etc is recommended? I liked the white sand from the last terrarium post particularly.

  5. This is so cool! I just need an orange shaped one for my husband since he eats like 4 oranges a day. lol

  6. Em says:

    So cute! I’m really intrigued by terrariums lately, I have so many pictures of them saved I think it is time I commit and get one. I’m just afraid I would kill yet another poor plant and then be left with a sad empty container.
