i am sherlocked

IMG_1.jpgPlants and terrariums are my latest obsession in life. I’ve always had a brown thumb, so what I’ve learned about keeping plants was completely through trial and error. Nowadays, I tend to prefer succulents over anything else. They require the crappy, rocky soil that is found in my backyard, little or no fertilization, medium light, and a watering once to twice a month. All of those conditions are what my tiny and dark home provide. Terrariums are a whimsical and one-of-a-kind way to take your plant collection up a notch. I just adore them!

Can we talk about the series Sherlock for a minute? Fans and Cumberbitches alike will have understood the meaning behind the title of this post. If any of you haven’t yet seen the hit BBC show then I can only say one thing, go and watch an episode right now! I promise that you will not be disappointed. It has complexity, class, humour, action, excitement, murder, a sense of modernity combined with the old, and much more. And the theme song? It’s nothing short of brilliant.

Now let’s discuss this DIY that I have set before you. Highly inspired by this terrarium, I thought what better way to display my two latest passions than to combine them in a glass setting? So I went on eBay, ordered my supplies, and waited about a week for them to come from all over the world. It was incredibly easy, incredibly inexpensive, and incredibly fun. I have to say that this has been my most favourite DIY yet.

A glass container

Moss

Rocks

London phone booth

Magnifying glass

Sherlock book thimble

Smiley face pin

IMG_3.jpgInstructions:

Line the bottom of the terrarium with rocks. Lay down a bed of moss. From there, add the remaining objects and decorate according to personal taste and style. Don’t forget to put on your chosen show for inspiration.
