Terrarium Decor

Lately I've been drawn to terrariums.  They are retro. They are zen.  They are green.  And since I don't have a single houseplant, the plant/oxygen factor appeals to me.  I can't say I have the greenest thumb, but I've been known to keep air plants and succulents alive.  Well, except for that batch of air plants that I left outside that the rabbits ate-- apparently air plants are wild bunny delicacy... who knew??

I especially like hanging glass terrariums.

a fun shape

I'd love to hang them over our kitchen table like this--

Wouldn't they be perfect in this space?

I just need to find a way to secure them to the ceiling.  Since we live in earthquake country, glass dangling from the ceiling makes me a little nervous.
