Thank you very much for the compliment! It's actually my camera, it takes amazing pictures very easily. And I love detail, my house is just brimming with it (some might call it clutter.)

Having a terrarium is like having a miniature eco system for your viewing pleasure. The layers, I think, are fascinating to look at, and watching plants grow is always interesting- at least to me! They were really hot in Victorian times and the 70's. It can be an art form too, as you arrange the plants, the objects the way you like. There are some really cool examples on Flickr if you are so inclined.

That's Mickey and he's a scoundrel.

Not at all! I threw this one together pretty quickly. You just have to put rocks at the bottom (get em cheap at $ store), then some kind of moss (got it free from my trees), dirt, then you can plant small plants or green moss (I collect moss from sidewalk cracks!) Jam it all in a jar and there you go. I got this big jar at Target for $14. You can also do it on a smaller scale, but then you have to work with a smaller opening. Just keep it watered and with a lid, condensation builds up- you just have to watch that things don't get overwatered. If you go to Flickr, you can get some real kicks by searching "terrariums" there are some awesome ones out there!

Thank you and thank you. What was I doing wrong with the HTML?

Damn it! I'm going to get this on here if it kills me.

I made this terrarium yesterday, I am obsessed with terrariums lately.

Oh my goodness, I love the Royal Tennenbaums embroidery. Very inspiring!

My children take piano lessons. My hope for them is to have a greater appreciation of music and to be able to play show tunes and pop hits at parties in order to delight their fellow guests.

This song makes me feel EXACTLY the same as I did when I was five years old riding to school in the front seat of my mom's yellow VW Bug, probably not wearing a seatbelt. It gets me every single time I hear it- it's like a mini time machine!

I know how you feel. I got really excited when I got a star on G. TV, until I realized they gave them to everyone and it didn't translate to any other G. site. And I was always frustrated for never getting a star on the "real" site. I felt like I was saying some interesting things sometimes and I just wanted to be in on the conversation. It became this really dumb goal to get a star- and now I couldn't care less. Crasstalk has been great, because I finally get some interaction. Just after a few weeks and I feel satisfied that I have some sort of voice- I haven't been back to the other place since. I only ever went there to read the comments anyway!
