Terrarium in A Light Globe

OK So I told you I saw this creative way to make a terrarium using glass bowls. Well this is what I found on Pinterest. http://pinterest.com/pin/216876538275040190/

So I posted my wonderful treasures that I found while out at the sales this weekend. One of my treasures was this clear globe fixture that goes over a light. When I saw it, I remembered the pin above on Pinterest. The one they are using appears to be a bowl as it does not have the lip that the one I found has. Anywhoo........I purchased mine for $1.

I went to one of my favorite stores today............The Home Depot............and I found these baby succulents. I don't know about you but these things look really weird and almost prehistoric like. I purchased three of them for about $5. I wanted my bowl to lay on it's side like the one in the pin but it is completely round. I figured if I shifted the weight of the soil, plants and rocks, the bowl would stay in place on it's side. Well guess what????? It DID.

My plants are tiny but with lots of TLC I think they will grow to be nice succulents. And the bowl looks great in my purple bathroom.......Yes I said Purple.

ciao for now
