It's a Sign

Even if you can't be there to declare your adoration yourself, this tiny figure will be standing by to remind those you love how much you care. Miniature world virtuosos Michelle Inciarrano & Katy Maslow fill each glass apothecary jar with textural mosses, river stones, and rich soil, creating a beautiful, easy-care ecosystem. Each moss-filled microcosm is populated by a male or female character in your choice of skin tone who speaks to the heart with a brazen "I love you" sign. Assembled by hand in Brooklyn, New York. Jar made in China.

“Once the day is done, there is always beer in the fridge, chips and dip laying about, and stories to share.”

Good things come in small packages for Michelle Inciarrano and Katy Maslow, who founded Brooklyn-based Twig Terrariums together. “We are obsessed with making these miniature gardens, and do not understand any other way since we started,” says Michelle. “We revel in them.” The childhood friends, who lost touch with each other for a decade before reconnecting with craft nights, find the same joy in working together in their studio (complete with a 14-foot paper mache tree!). It’s a sense of lightness they like to share with their staff. They may work hard growing a small business, “but once the day is done,” says Michelle, “there is always beer in the fridge, chips and dip laying about, and stories to share.”

It's a great romantic novelty gift but....

It is a beautiful romantic novelty gift! I have to say it's quite overpriced but I wanted to splurge a bit this year. Considering the cost it would be nice to include a mini spritzer bottle to "water" the moss. We certainly didn't have one on hand ready to properly care for the moss. Not all husbands are alike. Mine really hated the idea I spent "that much" on such a gift but somewhat appreciated the sentiment behind it. Feedback on the female holding the sign as well. Would be great if she had a pin or something to hold her up to dig into the bottom. She just wouldn't stay where she's at. I will try to glue a toothpick and use that to keep her propped up.

It was absolutely perfect! Lush moss and the vase is the perfect display for it. It came with great instructions so hopefully my husband will keep it alive.

Cute but figure was way off.

I got this for my husband for Valentine's Day. I wanted the figure to look like me so I chose the blond. It said blond on the invoice. What I got was a redhead in what looked like a mechanic's outfit. My husband thought it a little weird. I was disappointed.

Not worth the money

I desperately want to love this. But I don't. When this arrived it was frozen and already dead. Uncommon goods sent us another, however the second one was only partially alive when we received it and we couldn't keep it alive. My partner is a master gardner, and I'm an average gardner, so there shouldn't have been any problem with keeping this alive. Plus, it is much smaller in person than it is in the photo. We could easily make our own terrariums that are better quality than this. All this said, the figurine inside is a cute touch and we both really like that.

A lovely little garden

I think this product is quite lovely. I am still caring for it as my anniversary date nears, so it has not been received by my wife. During the weeklong caring, I've found that it "fluffed up" nicely after being packed with wet paper for shipping. I chose the figurine holding the sign "I Love You." Again, this has yet to be added to the scene, but I'm wondering how the sign will hold up to the water. Will I have to remove it each time to mist the moss? Is the paper durable enough? Also, unfortunately, when I pulled the wet paper from inside the terrarium I found a nest of ants had made the journey as well. I was startled and ended up killing the critters... not a good omen for my anniversary present. I haven't seen anymore bugs, since the initial surprise...

A most unusual terrarium, and my wife just loves to have greenery everywhere.

It was nice.

There are a lot of seeds sprouting. Whatever they are the stems and leaves are huge. It's not all that cool to have that happen.
