Terrariums are being sold locally!


I am very excited to announce that Theodore and Mabel will be selling terrariums at the wonderful Wasco Nursery. Prices average around $109-$149, but we have a few in the $39-$69 range that make for the perfect housewarming gift! If you are interested in purchasing your own secret garden,  stop by Wasco Nursery located at 41 W781 Route 64 in Saint Charles, IL.  My friend, photographer Ryan Moore, went to Wasco yesterday and took all the beautiful pictures below. For more information on the amazing work Ryan does, visit his website I have been so blessed to have the most supportive friends and family help me out through out this new life venture. So, thank you Ryan for giving up your Labor Day to help me out!

If you have any questions about any of the creations you see or would like to personalize a terrarium, please feel free to email me at

My mother is a lot like Mabel in that she loves flowers, gardening, creating–using nature as a way to express herself. As a result, my childhood was filled with long hours at flower shops, spending time in the yard, and watching my dad carefully follow my mom’s instructions as she expanded her garden empire in the backyard. Growing up I resented having to participate in these weekend yard work rituals. Putting sticks in a bag and raking leaves is not fun when you’re 10. But now I appreciate her talent and the hard work she put into these wonderful creations and I’ve enjoyed having her teach me how to create my own secret garden. She’s teaching me to turn this:

The Backyard

…Into This!

The Terrarium!

Here are some more shots from the garden and the resulting terrariums.

That chair is calling my name. Better than my desk chair!

Just a few for summer inspiration.

More patio because it is oh so beautiful!

More terrariums. Soon to be for sale!

Remember Ted&Mabel will always be cat friends.

Sneak peak of our fall line!

To get the ball rolling on Theodore and Mabel, mom and I are collaborating. In the next month or so, we’ll be coming out with OUR VERY FIRST LINE OF TERRARIUMS…our FALL line.  So keep watching this space for some sneak peaks. In the meantime, if you have any requests, suggestions, tips, comments, or compliments (these are my favorite), then send them my way:  I’d love to hear from you.
