Easter Weekend Treats

These are a few of the things I have been doing, looking at and buying this weekend so far. Including the May edition of Living Etc and Elle Decoration magazine, both of which are incredibly inspirational this month. Well worth a purchase.

Gap has some beautiful scarves for this Spring;
James and I have been looking at making a Terrarium, which was a very popular way of presenting plants in glass containers in the 70's/80's. There are some beautiful glass terrariums around, in the traditional 'wardian case' style, which was the original Victorian way of making a terrarium.

The pictures above are all traditional ways of presenting a wardian case. Here are some modern terrarium below, and what you are more likely to see in modern homes.
Elizabeth Barnett's website, fabulous textiles including a few terarrium/wardian case related pieces. 

I bought a couple of cases of this Chablis from Tesco, it's gorgeous!
