For years, I identified myself as having a “brown thumb.” (I did kill a succulent once, however, and that isn’t easy.) With our “New Perspective” in full effect here at the BSP this January, I decided to stop putting the energy out there that I can’t live with live greenery in my home. I have started collecting plants here and there and telling myself with confidence that I will keep them alive. It is (mostly) working. But the point is, I am starting to actually SEE myself as a woman who lives harmoniously with plants. A big part of this was that my absolute love for terrariums overrode my fear of being a plant killer. Once I got my first, I was hooked.
Moss + Twig is a personal favorite, friends. Lisa Yen grew up around plants and her love for greenery followed her to New York City. Without the space to cultivate a garden, Yen began creating a tiny “rainforest” in her apartment and these gorgeous terrariums were born. Utilizing wood, cork, and glass, Moss + Twig is chock full of the kind of adornment your space needs. There is something absolutely electric about curating an ecosystem and caring for it in the comfort of your home or office. And the easy maintenance makes this the perfect gift for your green challenged friends. (Hint, hint.)
