What would I do without friendly neighbors and neighborly friends?
Michelle S. who lives at the corner of 10th and Benton shared a picture on my timeline a couple of weeks ago…
And I was off on my little tangent.
Fast forward a week or two and I had all of the necessary supplies.
I found these adorable tiny little bottles with corks:
and I also bought the little metal eyes to go in the tops of the cork so I can run a chain or ribbon through the eye hook and make a necklace out of it.
I had picked up some medium sized stones and ordered a ten pack of these tiny tillsandia air plants:
I made a couple of the terrariums, even adding this little bottle to one of them with a tiny rolled up paper inside that says “Help!”
And then I went and picked up Em from her LEARN Math and Science class.
I asked her if she wanted to help me make some and of course she was excited about it.
She was captivated by the tiny bottles and asked if she could have a few. How could I say no?
She ran and got her gemstone collection – which she has accumlated over the years by “panning for gems” at various kid-centric events.
She added sand and tiny pieces of moss to hers, along with carefully selected gemstones.
So stinkin’ cute!
And while I was taking so many pictures, here is my ‘succulent’ project. It’s almost done!
