Thursdays are YOUR Days + Terrariums Reimagined

Before today's link party, I've got a fun book to tell you about called Terrariums Reimagined by Kat Geiger. 

But, first, I must apologize for last week's absence. I had a wicked case of strep throat (which was misdiagnosed, so no antibiotics for 4 excruciating days. Ouch!) and I was TOTALLY off my game on Wednesday night. Truly, this party slipped my mind as I focused every brain cell on NOT swallowing. Ha! I'm MUCH better now, thanks to Amoxicillin :)

But, on to the topic at hand...TERRARIUMS!

Any terrarium lovers out there? I think there is something really special about creating little living worlds in beautiful containers. And, this book has 24 unique ideas! 

When I received this book, I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised! The book is FULL of useful information and step-by-step instructions. Plus, the photographs are so pretty. It's the perfect coffee table book (uh-humm...good thing I've got some coffee table styling tips to share) ;)

The first terrarium on my to-do list is this Lush Landscape in an empty wine bottle! Perfect, huh?

You can pick this book up at Amazon (not an affiliate link, FYI) for around $12. Besides being fun to own, this would make a perfect gift. Perhaps packaged with all the supplies for one of the projects?? Maybe even a FULL wine bottle for a little extra love?! You know that would make for a happy recipient!

**Just so you know, I was given a free copy of this book to review. All opinions are 100% mine. (Including the full bottle of wine, gift basket idea. I take entire credit for that.) ;)
