Inspiration from another blogger!

Inspiration from another blogger's post!

I saw this picture on Vignette Design's 
recent post and it sparked an idea for me.
As soon as I saw the moss in this picture 
with the small clay pot I was inspired
A while ago I bought this bowl at Pier 1 
Imports for a display I had in a cabinet.
 Since then I've made changes and the 
bowl has been floating around looking for 
a home!  I recently acquired this little 
faux plant from Pottery Barn but hadn't 
decided where it was going to be put.
When I saw the moss it inspired me to 
merge the new plant with this bowl
and use the moss to accessorize it!
I went to my little box of deco 
accessories where I had a bag of 
sponge moss * pieces......
 I placed some moss on the bottom to 
raise the little pot higher and then filled 
in the sides with the moss! 
*I think it's actually called Reindeer Moss
I set it in my kitchen window and with the 
sunlight on it you'd think it was real!

  5. I love Delores' blog. She's so classy! Regarding moss...I always stuff it in plants too...both Spanish moss, the really green kind that I collect from the woods, and a new soft moss called reindeer moss.

  6. I think that's what this sponge like moss probably is called Reindeer Moss.. I couldn't find the name so I just called it sponge moss!
