Got this for a bargain yesterday.


Found this lamp/terrarium at an antique store in a small town I was driving through yesterday. I'm fairly certain it needs re wired and deemed safe by a professional but even non functional I think it's my favorite purchase in a long time. It's about two feet tall and a foot wide.

That is so cool! I wish I had one you should post a pic after you get it all set up with plants inside. I would love to see what you do with it...my little girl would have me put a fairy garden in there for sure.

Yeah, I'm going to look for an electrician to rewire it and do whatever extra to keep it safe etc. Once that's done definite fairy garden going in there. Any ideas for the taller plant to go in the back? I'm set on low growing plants but lack ideas for a taller one. Ohhhh maybe Joseph's coat "party time"

That "party time" is really pretty! I don't think I've ever seen that before...I just had to look it up

Hey thanks. A friend far away is working on it and I probably won't get it back.
