Of all the booths at Greenfest, one of them got my attention for being so original, creative, and fun that I just had to devote a post to it. Yes, Books, Bottles, and Bulbs Terrariums was awesome enough that, as soon as I saw what they were selling, I knew I had to have one and take it home:
Putting terraria in things besides glass tanks is nothing new. My first terrarium was a soda bottle, for example. The Morgan recently had us make jar terraria in honor of Earth Day (in April). All you have to do is get a little creative if you want your own indoor garden. Look for old jars or...anything else that can hold water and dirt, really.
B3T's works take that same idea and apply a whole new level of creativity. There are liquor bottles, lightbulbs (warning: these can spill) and other miscellany that can be made into perfectly fine containers for house and water plants. Basically, whatever the artist can find can become a terrarium if it can hold water and a few aquarium rocks. Then it's up to her (in this case) to make it look aesthetically-pleasing.
And mine? Mine's just a small bottle with a little bit of Japanese moss in it. Not very complex or spectacular, but still pretty in the same way a 'sand candle' is. The water needs to be changed every few weeks to keep things healthy. Yay for instructions!
