Winterlicious Glass Bubbles

Volleyball got canceled this morning so I'm catching up on some blogging time.  It rained all day here yesterday so I finished up some projects and caught up on my taped shows.   
Most rooms in my house are getting a little Winterlicious makeover.

The mantel is complete. 
I made the stockings yesterday, but haven't had a chance to take pictures yet.   
To see how I did the mantel go here.

To further bring in some winter sparkle,
I moved my glass bubbles from outside to in and gave them a seasonal sprucing up.

I emptied out the sand, succulents, shells, and tillandsias and hung them on the curly willow branches next to my vertical pallet garden and my metal hanging basket light.  So far the experimental vertical garden is doing awesome and it's growing.  I added some Christmas balls to the light for some Holiday bling.

I filled the glass balls with faux snow, faux greenery, and a Christmas ornament. 
Gold birds, a snowman, and a Christmas tree. This was a free makeover, I used what I had.

The bubbles make me feel like it's winter here in San Diego, 
Sometimes it even looks like it's snowing inside.
Stay warm birdie.

I don't really use too many snowmen in my Christmas decor, but I like him contained in the bubble.

I tend to put things in glass containers and change them out for the season.
Here's one of my giant Winterlicious snow globes. 
To see more of my snow globes go here.

These glass containers sit on my kitchen counter.

More glass on my island. 
We don't get much snow in San Diego so I have to pretend with my vignettes. 
The glass contains the snow so we don't end up with "snow drifts" all over the house.

Still need to work on my picture taking and getting rid of the glare off the glass. 

Hope your Holidays are warm and cozy even though it's snowing at my house.
