Put samples of shampoo, lotion, conditioner, & other toiletries in a glass container & put in guest bedroom when you have overnight guests so that they do not need to ask if they forgot something. Also a great way to store your samples!
Terrarium. To make a terrarium, choose a glass container with an opening wide enough for your hand. Gently add an inch or two of washed, fine gravel. Top gravel with a thin layer of activated aquarium carbon. (You'll find both items at your local pet store.) Next, add moistened potting soil, and you'll be ready to plant. Create a collection of plants, or showcase just one. Good choices include ferns, succulents, mosses, miniature moth orchids, African violets, and kalanchoes.
It is a heavy glass vase I got from Old Time Pottery I inverted on some concrete blocks so they could swim in from the bottom. You have to get wet to submerge the vase and turn it up under water so the vacuum created keeps the water inside. Make sure you have a heavy glass container or the weight of the water will shatter it. (court. of Rick Brown's fb page - Riverview Flower Farm Growing Florida Friendly Plants)
