Spring In A Bubble

It's 75 degrees and gorgeous here in San Diego today. 
Is it Spring yet? 
Maybe not, but I'm adding a little spring to my hanging glass bubbles.

Here are my Christmas bubbles.

Here is their Spring debut
Tillandsias with a side of mushroom, served on a bed of hot pink and purple moss, garnished with a sprig of lichen branch.

I call it it "Spring In A Bubble."

I've been in love with these little miracle air plants since back in the day when I used to make and sell table top fountains. 

I'm not the first to stick them in a bubble.
I found this Christmas ornament on Pinterest from Floragrubb

Here are some of mine from last September.

I found the pink moss and mushrooms at a great store called Pigment in North Park, San Diego.

The little faux mushrooms were inspired by the real thing.

This little guy appeared in one of my terrariums all by itself.
It was love at first sight.

 I think I have a case of "fungi fetish." 
I appologize if my humor tends to be juvenile. 
I used to teach middle school and I thought Beavis and Butthead are funny. 
They reminded me of some of my students. 
That's about my level of witty sophistication.
Come to think of it, Beavis and Butthead would probably try to smoke my faux "shrooms."


 Those prepubescent teenagers made me laugh everyday.

Enough of my trip down memory lane, back to the bubbles.

One good thing about having a neutral color pallet in my house is that I can add any color, at anytime and it pretty much goes.
Perfect for a changeaholic like me.
I'm loving the pop of hot pink right now.

It's a nice contrast with the adjacent succulents.


The wood pallet vertical planter is doing awesome.  If you would like to see how I made it go here
I've only had one succulent casualty so far and the weight of the soil hasn't pulled it off the wall.

Are you ready for Spring yet or am I too early?

Thanks for checking it out.


  1. I love those bubbles! I saw some at West Elm along with some "air" plants and was thinking of trying my hand at them. That wall is amazing!!!

  2. I love your bubbles...they are so cheerful!
    My husband just discovered the new Beavis and Butthead...we watched the old version when the kids were little, too.
    If you are on Coronado and you hear someone say "I need tp for my bunghole!" It may be us. ;) He does the dance, too. LOL
    Thanks for the spring inspiration!

  3. Fabulous as usual. That pink moss is incredible! It really makes the bubbles stand out nicely.

  4. These are cute! I passed on an "award" to you today on my blog. :)

  5. Luv it! I am so ready for spring :)

  6. We've had a few spring days too! I just need some bubbles! Love the colors! I'm a B&B fan to.

  7. Those bubbles are so very versatile! My husband introduced me to Beavis & Butthead when I first moved here - he was already addicted..takes me back 18 years!
