41  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / another lace rib cage on: February 06, 2014 09:21:15 AM
I cant get enough of rib cage shirts ,   from spray paint to antique lace so many things can be used to create a unique rib cage shirt
 I upcycled this 80/90s v neck sweatshirt using antique lace and a rosette heart !



 thanks for looking and have a great day

43  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Micro Terrariums and biospheres from recycled jars Now w/ tute on: January 22, 2014 11:46:30 PM
Hello , I hope this si the right board . I usually post clothing

Being trapped inside this snowy winter I find Myself becoming obsessed with plants and My window garden

Recently I recycled a mason jar an old flour jar and a wine bottle from My hubby and My  vacation to Key West last year into self sustaining bio gardens complete with live snails ! No need to feed the plants and snails take care of everything for each other .. The jars can even be sealed shut then you never need to add water - the plants create Oxygen . Im going to add some tiny ghost shrimp to the wine jar in a day or so


I also decided to try a few  micro terrariums with some tiny hen and chicks



open air micro garden with  fossilized rock



and just for fun My collection of  " Indian beads " crinoids


Thanks for looking and have a great day

 Tute added  and more pics :

Thanks for the positive feedback  Smiley Im having a lot of fun with these . The jars with the snails are purely aquatic , The snails can breath air and they do need a small area at the top so they can come out of the water from time to time - also to lay their eggs  . I havent sealed any of the  snail jars yet because Im giving the water plenty of time to culture with good bacteria first ( ideally you would add a few drops of pond water to get the micro  organism and bacteria  going )- since its to cold to access pond water I used a few drops from My aquarium as well as taking some rocks from the aquarium gravel to get My base going .

If its warm enough you can actually collect almost all your materials from the wild !

materials :
recycled or new jar or bottle
" treated " tap water
a few drops of pond muck - try to include any copepods , annelids ,  and other water living buggies - they all add to the ecosystem and help act as
 cleaners
gravel or sand substrate
plants

its best to let your jar sit with the  micro organisms and plants for a few weeks before you add snails - this allows time for bacteria and algae to grow so your snails will have a bit of a buffet when you add them

for the land  terrariums I used just plants ( although you can add worms and rollie pollies if you have a large jar )

add some gravel or sand to the bottom of your jar - mix in a sprinkle of activated charcoal ( the kind for fish )

then a few spoons of potting soil - I used a paper cone to get it in without messing up the sides of the jar and use a long pair of tweezers to plant your plants - I added a few droppers of water and sealed them up - they should self sustain as long as they dont dry out .. if they get dry just add a few more drops of water
