Parisian Flea Market Birdcage Terrariums

You don’t need to wait for Spring to “sprung” to add some bohemian color and charm to your décor. Picture a Parisian flat in the 1920s: Long strands of pearls, brass cigarette holders, beaded dresses… and these fabulous birdcage terrariums. They put a girly twist on the modern indoor garden. Filled with moss, airplants and maybe a faux butterfly or two, they make a sweet centerpiece for your next party or permanent decoration for your dresser or mantel. The best part? This piece looks expensive and sophisticated but it’ll only cost you about $20!

Mary would like to thank the lovely, generous people who gave me stuffed toys for her while I was on book tour. As you can see, she thoroughly enjoyed them last night when I returned home. Would you mind coming over this morning to clean up their guts, which have been strewn in every nook and cranny of our apartment. Thanks! 😘
