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!

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️

This photo was taken the day my mom brought me back to the US from Panama, where I was born. She had jet-black hair and a tan, whereas I was basically translucent, with white hair and big blue eyes. Security guards stopped her in the airport because they thought she was smuggling someone else’s baby out of the country. So, I guess it’s time for everyone to come clean. I was indeed stolen. I am actually a Norwegian prince. Where’s my 👑, Terri?!?! Where. Is. My. #%^*ing. 👑?!? 🤪 Happy Mother’s Day!!! I love you. Sorry I’m so weird. ❤️
