Linda was terrific in mailing this to me. She also included 3 Handmade Reversible Ornaments, a package of Snowglobe Stickers, a card and an Andes mint that Lucy sniffed out, but did not get to eat, lol.
Linda, "THANK YOU!" I have the terrarium sitting on a table and I am mulling around in my mind what to put inside it. There is a collection of sand castles and a bowl full of seashells- I thought they might look nice inside. Or, maybe a couple of souvenier dolls and knick knacks. Or, maybe I should start from scratch and go to the dollar and thrift stores for inspiration. Linda shares lots of crafts on her blog and she has used dollar store items many times. Recipes, crafts, and lots more to inspire on her blog.
Check out the elf who picked my ticket and here is the terrarium on her Mom's mantel decorated. Linda and Carol are blessed to have their mom, who is 103, yes, 103 years old and still active, sewing, baking, and with a genuinely lovely smile.

I'd love to have a walk round her "Junk Garden." The pink bike is so lighthearted and fun, and the statuary and whatnots bring a smile to a stress filled day.
After the Sandy Hook School murders Linda was inspired to make 26 angel paintings and put them on the roadside at the way into the town. You can see her post with images, "Angels of Newtown" here. A labor of love.
Thank you, Linda! I am delighted with the terrarium and know it will be a reminder to me of your talents, kindness, and generosity of spirit.
If you haven't visited Linda's blog, I hope you will. ♥
