new year’s resolution: more green

by Grace Bonney

i’m not a big fan of new year’s resolutions (mostly because i can never keep them), but i am a big fan of setting small short-term goals each month and working towards them. so this year i’m “resolving” to make more of my short term goals plant-related. i’ve started to notice that even the teeniest bits of green in my life make me exponentially happier. so when is saw these miniature terrariums from tortoise loves donkey at etsy (around $5 each) i was inspired to indulge in my new found love for baby plants (i got 6 mini baby’s tears plants at terrain last month!) and terrariums at the same time. i’ve been scouring my kitchen this morning looking for tiny vessels (vanilla extract bottles? vintage glass pill bottles?) to fill with mini plants like these. they would be the perfect thing to surprise friends with- small enough to carry around, but cute enough to count as a “just because” gift. click here to pick up one of these from etsy, or click here to learn how to build your own terrarium from tassy of sprout home (just scale down the amounts to fit your tiny vessel).
