Maybe it’s true that Victorian is the new modern, ’cause I keep seeing terrariums everywhere.
I’m not really into Victoriana, but I am obsessed with terrariums. Not exactly with keeping or creating them; just in looking at lovely ones online. You know, the lazy kind of obsession. First there was the sleek-n-sexy Terradome (above) from ModernPast.
Then Mighty Girl showed us how she created her own (those are hers, above).
Mighty Girl also led me to Paula Hayes’ handblown glass ones (yep, that’s her gorgeous creation above). Check out Paula’s Flickr site here to see more of these ethereal beauties.
Pretty inspired, eh? It’s almost enough to make me step away from the keyboard and go shopping for bromelaids. Almost.
Visit the Terrarium Museum or check out other peoples’ creations on Flickr.

I would like some of those, but they seem to delicate for me. also, I have no more flat surfaces. *sigh*.

Yes, it does seem that terrariums are hot these days!
I posted this week about a big terrarium I have not yet planted. I’m going to follow some of these links you’ve provided to see if I get some help/info on what to plant in mine!
Oh I love terrariums and have wanted to make my own for some time. Thanks for the links, I’m bookmarking this.
i can’t believe this! i too, am obsessed with looking at pictures of terrariums online! i thought i was the only one out there. eventually i will get around to making one myself. meanwhile, i am letting my imagination go wild while looking at other people’s creations. thanks for your website.
