The Look of Fall

I added some fall touches to the terrarium in our den.  This style of terrarium is known as a Wardian Case, and you can read what I wrote about them Here.  I haven't tried real plants in mine, because I don't think they would survive; this corner of the den gets almost no sunlight.  I just substitute other things for live plants -- do I know how to have fun, or what?  :-D


I'm still working to learn the DSLR camera.  My husband says our den is a real pill to photograph in, and I would have to agree.  It's very cozy just to hang out here with the soft lamplight, but there's not enough light to take really good pictures.  I think we need to consider track lighting for this room -- over the fireplace and in this corner would make a world of difference.


As you can see, the left side is in shadow here, and the right side has bright light from the lamp.  However, I think you can still get the general idea here.  A teacup and saucer from my Johnson Brothers "His Majesty" dishes, a faux deer antler, some leaves dried in glycerin, and faux acorns.  I like the way it turned out.  Happy Fall Y'all!  :)

  1. Very nice. It is fun to have a piece that you change around to switch up the look of a corner, giving the whole room a new look.

  3. I confess that I've never heard of a terrarium (a home for trumpets?), let alone a wardian case (a condition that comes after being an 'ed case?) - but they both look really nice! You have a wonderful, cosy looking, home Denise! PS Also impressed by the adjective, above, 'fallified'! Sorry - it's been a tough week...hugs from across the Pond.
