People like the terrariums in the lobby at Ace Hotel Portland. Martie Kilmer makes them. She has a store right around the corner from Ace, filled with skulls, cacti, and supplies for the curious. Visit her website to see more of her work, including a cow skull with air plants growing out of it. Pretty awesome.

Terrariums are really fun to make — you should try it. Get a cup of coffee and take notes in the lobby sometime.

Just got back from a lil’ stay at the Ace. Still good. Kenny & Zukes and Clyde Commons and Voodoo Doughnuts — still delicious.
