A New Plant Terrarium

 Gift Bags 007 

If you were shopping in the TJ Maxx in Burlington, NC earlier today, that was me you heard squealing with delight when I came across this gorgeous plant terrarium!  It is just perfect and looks about 100 years old.  I planted my lavender seeds in the stone pot today (the same set I blogged about earlier this week that was free from American Greetings Cards with any 4 card purchase) and added it to the terrarium along with a couple of ivy plants.  It should help keep the plants warm and moist…just the way they like it. :)

Our sunroom is finally starting to look like a sunroom.  At least more like I have always wanted to to look.  I am getting ready for a paint change in there though.  Right now it is a color called “light sage” but it’s looking more like “seafoam” to me lately.  I am paranoid about it looking “seafoam” since it was my favorite color, once upon a time…along with “peach” back in the 1980’s from when we were first married.  Am I alone?  Any other former “seafoam and peach” addicts out there???   Now, I am just not sure what color to paint it.   I want something up to date and I want it bright and cheerful.  It’s a great room.  One of our favorites.  The name “Sunroom” really applies.  It is a bright and sunny room and we spend a lot of time in there.

So bit by bit, I’ll keep working on the sunroom and start looking at paint chips.  I am all ears when it comes to color suggestions!

Call it turqouise and blame pantone! I love the terrarium, my plants are suffering through an indoor winter so I think I need one of these :)

TJ Maxx, you say? : ) Love it, it's beautiful! What other colors do you have in the room, Lisa? Furniture and accessories?

Thanks. I have a sofa and love seat that are a white/cream background with a dark blue wide plaid. Some khaki in the plaid with the blue. A small amount of green in it too.Big floral pillows...(would like to replace). The walls are light sage right now. The coffee table is light pine color on top with the legs painted cream. Same on an end table with a lamp. I ended up taking my "Boulangerie" clock out and moving upstairs and the chair is no longer in there anymore either. Anyway, wish I could replace the furniture but no funds for that with kids in college. And besides they are really, really comfortable. Any ideas? Thanks Kathy!

OOhhh cute! I saw one of those somewhere last week, Marshall's probably. Still too rich for my blood right now at $70. Would pale yellow work in your cozy little sunroom?

You lucked out girl. What a great find but your post makes me sad. I want some greenery (live) around me. Some sunshine would be nice too.

I use to have a peach & seafoam green guestroom about 23 yrs. ago. YIKES! Also had blue carpet, hence my adversion to blue in my house now. Still am not over that one. LOL!

I love your great find! Wonder if there are any in the nearest TJ Max for me?

I love it. It makes me think that spring is really on it's way to see a little plant popping up-even if it is indoors.

Great find.
