over this past weekend i spent as much time as possible doting on my new begonia, hellebore, and oxalis plants, trying to get them through this serious sunlight drought we’re having right now. while i’m really loving my larger plants, i’m still nursing a major obsession with miniature plants: babys tears, snow roses, and geraniums. so when i was building today’s under $100 table lamp guide i was immediately tempted by this bell jar table lamp from west elm. though its $149 price tag put it above the budget of today’s roundup, i couldn’t resist posting it this morning, as i’m dying to use it as an informal terrarium for some of my miniature plants. i’m wondering if the heat from the bulb will be too hot, but i think it might be worth a shot, especially considering how easy it would be to move a tiny potted plant in and out of the lamp base. if you’re looking to start a mini lamp garden like i am click here to check out the bell jar lamp at west elm.
