Olive Loves: Terrariums

Green leaves and moss, tiny trees and miniature jungles… don’t you just adore bringing the outside in?

On a dreary day there is simply nothing better than losing yourself amid the magic of a terrarium.  Created in all shapes and sizes, these beautiful glass boxes are just the best!  Personally I am absolutely smitten with these models from the design company, Score and Solder.

So, how to populate your terrarium world?

Just go ahead and use your own unique creativity to explore the inner workings! Plant or place your favorite things inside. Living greens are the usual, but don’t hold back – let your imagination gallivant!

You can add rocks or gems or moss or fern, no matter what exquisite objects end up inside these sweet little treasure boxes, you’ll be sure to be enchanted.

When you’re done, just place it on a windowsill or a mantle piece and voila´- you’ll have a bit of the backyard in your living room!


Olive Goil: Flora Grubb

Miss Grubb enjoys getting her hands dirty and she’s taken that love to the height of heights with a whole darn biznez of growing and glowing!

As the proprietress of one of the finest plant nurseries in all the land, Miss Grub (that is her name, truly!) is the real darn deal. She’s been featured in magazines around the globe for her greenest-of-the-green thumb and the community of plant lovers she’s gathered around her magical horticultural headquarters in San Francisco!

All that and Miss Grub is so darn young and rosy cheeked, a gal of real refinement, big accomplishment and a knack for soil and such. If you’re in Cali-for-nia you can stop by for a visit at her Flora Grub store and if you’re not quite the adventurous type, you can easily shop at her online garden for all sorts of goodies – like pretty little glass terrariums and wacky wool wall hangings perfect for putting a jungle right in your living room.

You know how I adore flowers and ladies with spunk?

Well, Flora Grubb is a bit of both and more to boot!
