I mentioned on Facebook a few days ago that I have been getting magazines in the mail that I haven’t signed up for or have paid for. I didn’t get any responses and I still have no idea where these are coming from. But. I’m glad that I’m getting them. One of them is “Fresh Home” and it’s all about design and decorating. I’m in love with it. I’ve spent days poring over this magazine. There are so many cute ideas that I want to try out.
On the top of that list to try out is making a terrarium. I can’t have pets in the dorm, and I’ve been craving something that I can take care of. Also, outside is so grey and slushy and yucky and I want something colorful in my room. A terrarium pretty much covers this for me. Not only do I get to put it all together (and I love planting flowers), but I get to choose plants I love and little bits and pieces to make it mine. In the magazine, there’s an article describing the plants you can use, what stuff you need to make it successful and other little tips to help you out.
I’m moving out of the dorms tomorrow, and I’ll definitely be on the lookout for things to use in mine over the holidays; plants, glass containers, and little odds and ends to make it pretty. When I move back into college, I’ll have my own little “garden” and I won’t feel so lonely with something to care for.
