The Perfect Pear Terrarium

April 9, 2009

Do you remember last Fall when I showed you my newly renovated kitchen and a pear terrarium I had purchased in Germany, with plants, for $10 at a home store there called Hornbach (similar to a Home Depot)? So many of you went crazy for it, I received a ton of emails after that post asking where you could find such cuteness in America. Look no further, I’ve found on for you!

Yesterday during lunch I was flipping through the latest Viva Terra catalog and the second I saw their new terrarium I immediately turned back the page and put it on my desk so that I could share this darling terrarium with you today. I know this little guy will make you very, very happy, though after paying $10 for mine in Germany the price tag is a little high but who knows, perhaps the quality is better than mine or something. The point is that you can now own a sweet pear terrarium of your very own and that is a good thing, right? You can purchase this recycled glass terrarium either with plants ($79) or without ($49) — I like that Viva Terra gives that option. I hope that you enjoy your terrarium find today!

    I just bought two of these glass pears for 9.99 each at Tuesday Morning. Way cheaper than Viva Terra!

    they are verry nice but the one who have little stones is wrong becouse the little stone would have to be under the ground because that’s the way they are the layers of the earth naturally. the way in this example are plants will not grow well.
    anyway, are very cute to decorate a home. good luck!!!
