my mom bought a terrarium from the sunflower farm when i was home in connecticut a few weeks ago. and then several days ago, annie was talking about making one and putting a deer figurine in it. i said that i wanted to make one, too. but then i remembered the cold hard facts. i live in manhattan. where would i get the soil? where would i get the rocks? the plants? before i forgot how much i wanted to make a terrarium, i went so far as looking up rocks to purchase online. and then! in the 99-cent store store that i work above, while buying a tacky picture frame on my lunch break, lo and behold! forty assorted rocks in a mesh bag.
but, until i find the motivation to get the soil/vase/plant-life, i must find another use for them.
