Plant a Tree

Or, if you live in an apartment, make a terrarium.

About a month ago, I came across The Little Red House and couldn't stop reading. When I found her Outside In post, I knew this was a project I wanted to tackle. Saturday morning, we ate yummy Italian at Joe's and headed out to add a little green goodness to our apartment.

We visited the local thrift store to grab a third jar (the first two were given to us by Eric's sweet mom, who scoured her Goodwill to find the beauties). Then we trapsed half-way around the world to gather the rest of our supplies: rocks, dark potting mix, active carbon, succulents and moss. (Okay, slight exaggeration - everything was easy to find except the active carbon - the pet store is apparently where it lives).

We made a fun mess in the living room putting these together. Eric has quite the green thumb (for which I am grateful) and suggested that we pot the moss seperately since we were happy with the mossless terrariums. These plants look lovely in our apartment and the old jars give it such a homey feel. Enjoy!
