"What's It Wednesday"....

What's it? and Terrariums....

I found this wooden thing a majing at the antique store where I got the stool, it was in a bag with some other goodies, so I *think* I might know what it was used for, but I thought I would share it with you and get your opinions as to what it is. Any guesses?
Has a triangle shape cut into the side but doesn't go all the way through.
Handle rotates all the way over to the other side. What's It?
Last week I made some terrariums with some glass jars that I have been collecting.
I couldn't find that many small plants or ones that were suitable for terrarium life. The biggest jar holds two small ferns. It's a bit steamy in this picture because it was newly made and watered, it has since cleared.
I ended up taking the lids off the two small jars because the plants within them are succulents and don't really like a humid environment. So after the soil dries out a bit, I'm going to put the lids back on.

I had been wanting to make these for awhile, but I had to find the right pet store that sold activated charcoal loose. And honestly, after I made them, I wasn't that thrilled, LOL! You really need a huge jar and really tiny plants to have any fun with putting little gardens scenes and stuff in it. Oh well, I have some new house plants and that is a good thing, plus it's better the jars are filled with soil and plants instead of candy and treats!!!

Have a Wonderful Wednesday,



  1. I have no idea what that is!!!lol, But your terrariums look like a fun idea. I love all of your different shaped jars.Good luck finding out what it is. Blessings ~Sara

  2. Last year I was all into the terrarium stuff as well. I bought this great lidded jar on Ebay, but when I bought the plants...they were too big for the jar. I couldn't put the lid on! LOL I still have that plant in there...even moved it when we moved. But, I don't do the terrariums anymore!
    I'm stumped by the wooden thing-a-ma-jig!
