When you see such beautiful vintage items you think two things:
1) Why do we throw so much stuff away when it'll look gorgeous on your fireplace mantle in forty years?
2) I want to keep everything so in forty years I can use it as home decor or sell it on Etsy
Terrariums are so great because my cats eat any potted plants. ):
I'm sure if I bought a cactus my cats wouldn't eat that either ;)
