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.

    I have to admit, I love this project. But I did sit and watch the videos at the bottom for a LONG time. * happy girl sighs *

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • Thank goodness for breastfeeding. My darling caught her first flu yesterday. I tried giving her bland foods and drinks all day- she wouldn't touch them. Then I tried her favourites- still nothing. Instead, all she wanted to do was nurse round the clock. That is how we spent the majority of the day- nursing, bathing, cuddling, barfing, repeating.
My goal was to breastfeed Remy until she was 18 months old. After that I had no plans. As she is nearing month 19 earthside, I've discovered that she has no intention of stopping. 
On the rare occasions when she's sick, I'm reminded of why we have kept it up for this long, and why we keep on going. I'm almost certain that she would've become dehydrated yesterday if it wasn't for me nursing her. So although fed is best, the breast is truly a gift. My little lovebug doesn't always want me for naps lately, but when she does, it makes me feel warm, loved, and needed. Also, look at her hand tucked inside of my shirt. I'm melting.
