I love Terrariums!

I found this here...I thought it was sold out but then I checked again and there was 1 left so i bought it!!

I've been wanting to make one of these for a long time now...I need to gather some miniature animals and little things to make an enchanted forest in a jar. Here are some of the best ones I've found....

This right here was the site where I first learned of Terrariums back in the spring...there's instructions on how to make them too!

and here is a blog that featured a whole week of Terrarium stuff! She even made a terrarium picture frame which is pretty funny.

Cool Tea Set!

“One warm spring afternoon on the garden table she sees more than her own tea set. She discovered that its shadows could not be separated from the shapes of the set and that they constantly played their own game with them.”

Cantos Music Foundation

The first Thursday of every month there are free tours of the collection of pianos and other piano-like instruments. Definitely check it out! There were some of the coolest or oldest or weirdest instruments I've ever seen! And Cantos is building a new building to host the National Music Centre of Canada. I think its so great that Calgary is going to have something like this and can't believe one doesn't already exist somewhere in Canada! Especially to house all of these crazy instruments.
The architecture and design concept look pretty incredible. You can see he architect explain his design here.
