lichen and work in progress

I replanted my terrarium and added a bunch of new lichen.


It’s very fancy lichen.


These are called pebbled pixie cups.

And a bat in progress.



  1. The bat is amazing, will they show up in your shop or can a person place a bat order?

  2. Oh! A bat!! I can’t wait to see the finished critter! 🙂

    And your photographs are absolutely lovely; a nice little respite from my harried Monday! 🙂

  3. Beuatiful terrarium!! I’ve been meaning to make one forever…perhpas I will now! Where does one get such snappy lichen?

  4. These look so gorgeous. The tiny organic forms are quite inspiring… their structures could make quite nice little print designs.

    Sigh, I saw one of your birds yesterday here in Melbourne, Australia. Although I suspect it wasn’t one of -your- birds. I wanted to say something to the shop owner but wasn’t sure – The shop is called Douglas & Hope (

  5. wow, those cup lichens are amazing…I have never see anything quite like it here on the west coast..just your pedestrian usnea/old man’s beard and the strangely beautiful rock lichens. my 8 year year old son and I have started our own terrarium thanks to your inspiration: baby tears, moss and such.

  6. What a wonderful terrarium. By the way, I think your birds are fantastic. I’m going to go check out your etsy shop now.


  7. your terrariums have always been lovely. i scored a book on ebay about building terrariums over a year ago. i have yet to open the book. sigh.

  8. Wow, your terrarium is beautiful. I have always wanted to do one, but I haven’t a clue where to begin!

  9. oh please, can i live in your terrarium?!? where oh where does one find ‘pebbled pixie cups’? pray tell, and happy new year to you!

  10. i LOVE your itty lichens! super super jealous! i keep trying to get a terrarium going…. but sadly, they just don’t like the Texas heat *sigh

  11. I am starting my very own terrariums this week. 2 with just one plant each (a irish moss in one and a small vine-y tropical in the other) and then my hope is to start a moss and lichen one in this great shallow fish bowl i got some time back. Any tips on gathering and transplanting specimens? Your beautiful mini garden is one to be envious of! 🙂

  12. OMG! A lichen terrarium! I am in love with that beautiful miniature garden. You are so talented! The bat is amazing.

  13. I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you design this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz respond as I’m looking to design my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from. thanks a lot

  14. Most of what you say happens to be astonishingly appropriate and it makes me ponder why I hadn’t looked at this with this light previously. This article truly did switch the light on for me personally as far as this subject matter goes. But at this time there is just one point I am not necessarily too cozy with and while I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual core theme of the issue, permit me see just what the rest of your subscribers have to say.Very well done.
