Shape of Play Update

In my last post, I mentioned the idea that the most playful shapes for humans-and some other animals, too--are circles and spheres. I haven't done much in the way of decorating tweaks since then, though I really meant to get some round throw pillows. But here are the small, plant-based ways I've added spheres and circles to my life:

Marimo moss balls:

Goldfish plant in a bowl:

Air plant habitat:

String-of-pearls succulent:

And this moss terrarium:

My history of plant care is a little spotty, so it's a good thing these are all fairly low-maintenance. Because the least joyful shape for a plant is, well, dead.

I hope you're having a good week, and I'll see you soon!


  1. Marimo moss balls? I haven't heard of them. It looks like they are aquatic?

    One day I'll get an air plant terrarium :)

    Your are all lovely, and their bowls gorgeous.

    1. The marimo are aquatic and don't even really seem like they're alive. Kind of feels like the moss equivalent of pet rocks!
