Love the terrarium pictures and have just checked out your etsy shop - I'd love to buy every single piece - unfortunately, I am currently "skint" - so I'll just have to settle for visiting your beautiful blog.

what I love about these jars that you have on your etsy shop and here..(and in some of your other work that I have seen on your blog) is the lovely roots that you have exposed. They are beautiful shapes and conrast to the pretty layers of dirt. I just love how you see things! I love your organic shapes and your color choices. Hugs! Jen

Beautiful. I like how the root systems look like skeletons, fish skeletons, and that the dirt is similar to a medical illustration of skin layers. Gives it a depth that complements your illustration style.
