Recycled Glass Bubble Wall Terrarium

That's right, wall terrarium! There is a small hole at the rear of the glass, anchor your screw into the wall and hang away. No two will be the same, though the general size of the piece is always the same. Because they are hand blown, there is some variation from piece to piece, what does remain the same, other than the song.... is how awesome these are. Pretty decently priced as well. You can find them here at sprouthome.com We think you all will love these. Happy Spring, though it is cloudy and a bit chilly here in Chicago. The ones shown above are two different terrariums, one has succulents planted in it, and the other has raindeer moss, mood moss, orchid bark, two air plants, and a johnny head jr. Rock it!

Welcome to our Roof, we rather like it.

Here are some views of some goodness we have going on with our Rooftop here at Sprout. Containers galore, and some very nice views. If you can just get past that damn Mcdonalds sign.

Fermob Bistro Double Tables... pretty rad right?

Slinkachu.... we love you.

all photos by Slinkachu.
This book is comprised of a collection of photographs by Slinkachu, a London*based street artist who for several years has been placing tiny hand painted scenes on street corners, park benches, and the underground, leaving them to their own devices, to be discovered by what we are sure is a pretty stunned public. 188 pages of wonder, hard cover, and well... get em while you can.
