Ooooh man that one was really stretching it. The rhyme worked, but I’m not really sure I would classify giving the air plants a new home “game.” Ah, well. It’s Friday. It shall have to do.
Remember when I introduced you to Tilly? Here’s a picture to jog your memory:
Well. As much as I loved the idea of these guys, they just weren’t doin’ it for me. They weren’t tickling my fancy. Scratching my itch. Satiating my hunger. This just got weird, didn’t it? Something was off. I lived with it for a few days and then decided they needed to shape up or ship out.
AND SHAPE UP THEY DID.
They got a lil makeover. Some beefing up, if you will.
I got rid of the dinky fishing line and replaced it with some twine. Rope? Jute? Hemp? I never know what it’s called. But I definitely don’t recommend smoking it. Learned. My. Lesson. HAHA JUST KIDDING, MOM & DAD.
Instead of hanging it through the loop on top of the glass spheres, I thought it would be interesting to make a triangle shape by weaving the twine through the air holes. I’m really into triangles right now.
And of course I had to throw in some miniature pebbles leftover from the terrarium project. I think they add a playful touch of personality to the corner. They also act as a terrific source of water. I just recently found out in order to water my air plants all I have to do is keep a slight amount of water under the pebbles; no more taking them out for weekly baths!
SIDE NOTE: While I was at the garden store over the weekend I picked up a few more of these tillandsia. A girl can’t have too many
shoes plants, right? They were too big for the globes so they found their forever home at the base of another lingering house plant.
They add some much needed oomph. That’s a real word, by the way.
Ok! What do you think? That should about it do it for the plant posts. We added quite a bit of greenery to the house this week; it’s feeling very jungly in here. But the good kind of jungly. Not the kind where the ground moves at night because of the blanket of bugs.
I watch too many nature shows. And on that note.
Have an awesome weekend everyone! Steve and I finally get to spend a weekend together! He has Saturday AND Sunday off and I’m not sure how we’ll spend them yet. A whooole weekend together with nothing planned is kind of the best feeling ever.
Happy Friday! xo
