My love for terrariums runs deep...but lately I've been a little terrariumed out. Don't get me wrong. Plants under glass always look magical...but once everyone and their mom jumped on the bandwagon it was all terrariums all the time. Plants in jars...plants under domes...plants in hanging orbs. There's only so much a girl can take!

But my love has been reignited. When I spotted this vintage stained glass terrarium at the Saugerties Antique Center I knew it had to come home with me.

I'm super into all things geometric and faceted right now (water prisms, anyone?) this cut glass version is really speaking to my interests. And it's a welcome change from all of the blown glass varieties I see all over the place.

I got this sweet little potted succulent arrangement to put in it...

And here's the terrarium in its new home above the desk in my studio...

  3. Dear Darbie,
    since months I am checking your blog everyday. Your decorating, writing and Bishop Allen music has become a great source of inspiration and joy for me. I hope you are doing fine and enjoying the summer.
