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 you to all those who liked, commented, and sent me messages yesterday. I am overwhelmed by your love. I would like to share one more thing. Since 2013, I have used my blog as a creative outlet and my Instagram account as my diary. I feel it’s a much better platform to reach out to others, and to be more truthful (if we dare). I try to only follow those who don’t always show the ups and highs of their “perfect” lives. While I think that the more popular, beige square, ad-infused, California chic, glam mother accounts are beautiful, I also find them to be depressing and unoriginal. A miscarriage is real. It is nothing to be ashamed of. If you don’t choose to discuss yours, that’s totally fine! I needed to share mine in order to begin my grieving and healing process. I am now a mother to two children. This is something that I did not want to, nor will I ever hide. Yes, our second child came much too early and did not survive, but that does not make his/her life any less worthy. Our baby was alive at one time. Our baby has a soul. Now, our baby has a name and will forever be part of our family. We are a family of four- three on earth and one angel in heaven. So, thanks again all. Sadness. What a difference a year can make. Last holiday season, Remy turned 10 months old. She had just gotten her first two teeth, and on Christmas morning, had learned to crawl. This year, we are mourning the loss of our second child. I suffered a miscarriage this week, and it has left a deep void in our family. This was going to be our Christmas card where we revealed to friends and family our joyous secret. Now, it remains one of our only photos as a family of four. Because of this, I want to share it with the world. Give your children an extra hug and kiss for me tonight. You are so blessed to have them. All my love, Emory.
