BUBBLE DAZE


 We have heard on good authority that Bubble Fairies only come on special occasions! Seems silly, to us because we think that BUBBLES can be a part of our every day life. For instance: Funny Bunny and Grammy had a Grammy-Granddaughter date and they ran into BUBBLES everywhere. 



How about Bubble Pancakes!  Yum Yum. Even Bubble Sausage and Butter.

  Ooh lah lah a pampering petite hair cut at the Beauty Salon, where Bubbles were EVERYWHERE and filled with magical mirrors!

Grammy and her Funny Bunny are pretty sure there was a lurking Bubble Fairy somewhere, maybe behind the bushes. Because-- right in the middle of the walkway was a GIGANTIC BLUE BUCKET of BUBBLE SYRUP! Well what can two 'ladies' do but pick up BUBBLE WANDS and let those BUBBLES fly up to BUBBLE HEAVEN!! Our only regret was not riding on them. Wow, what a view that would be. Bubbles, are a phenomenon  gifted to us by Mother Nature. They have always been floating around. But the notion of PLAYING with BUBBLES didn't really exist before the "invention" of soap. Doing a bit of research, since the BUBBLE FAIRY speaks too softly to really understand, we uncovered a few interesting side lights. The PEAR SOAP COMPANY was founded in England in the 19th century.  They get the credit for popularizing both soap and bubble blowing. BUBBLE TOYS were mainly bubble pipes until mid 20th century. Must have driven the BUBBLE FAIRIES crazy waiting so long to share their BUBBLES.
 



Sir John Everett Millais painted this picture called BUBBLES. This became a very popular painting as it was used over many generations in advertisements for PEARS SOAP.

 Sir Millais used his five year old grandson to pose for this portrait. Millais based it on techniques used by 17th century Dutch predecessors,  spotlighting the transience of life.   During Millais lifetime, the use of a piece of fine art for advertising sparked a very large debate over the relationship between advertising and art.


 Okay we are now getting off subject. Grammy took Funny Bunny home for a nap. Sleepy time let her little thoughts soar on all things round and BUBBLY. Grammy took a minute to go through some paintings, she too was curious, was she painting BUBBLES and didn't know it.  Maybe there was a BUBBLE FAIRY tucked in her paintbrushes.  What do you think? See any BUBBLES?


Children at Play....30 x 40 inches....


Klimt's Sisters...

 By all appearances there just might be a BUBBLE FAIRY drifting around in the painting studio.



 Treat yourself...go and purchase some BUBBLE SYRUP or even better make your own.
Then invite your favorite FUNNY BUNNY to some very BUBBLY BUNNY FUN!
