Can you tell this is a fake terrarium?

From the Kelly and Olive blog
I'm excited to share this "faux" terrarium that looks quite lifelike.  I spotted this beautiful cloche arrangement at kellyandolive.com. We've all seen the cutesy fake terraria sporting felted mushrooms and what not but - what do you think of realistic yet plastic plants?  I, of course, love the process of watching living plants take over an enclosed space.  But as Kelly and Olive point out - fake can have it's own merits.
And it’s the perfect application for a fake plant. The room is a lovely, but low-lit library, and the plant was going to go on a bookshelf. The man of the house makes his headquarters in there, and he’s a busy guy, so it wasn’t likely that he would remember to care for the poor little thing. We needed something green, but sturdy. We needed beautiful, but unkillable.

  1. The Puffin! This bird is super cute, cute and looks a bit funny too. It is an impressive bird that loves seafood the most. Think fish or even squid. The nicest part about the bird is the colors. It all looks very nice. He has a pretty crazy appearance, but also looks cute. He is sometimes called the clown of the ocean. All birds are chosen based on our favorites.

    The Atlantic Puffin is somewhat reminiscent of an animated bird, also known as the “Common Puffin”. Hailing from the Atlantic Ocean, the bird fed squid, and other marine animals. While the bird looks fun, many love Atlantic puffins around the world. In addition, the beak is very unique, comprising orange and white tones. The total length of the bird is about 30 cm and the head appears to be crowned with shiny glossy black. It is an endangered species, although they are never found in countries. He spends most of his life in the ocean, and it can only be seen near coastal areas during the breeding seasons.
