This was an old brass thrift store mirror that I painted, hung in a diamond shape rather than square and embellished to fit my decor.  I like how something as simple as changing the rotation of something gives it an entirely different look.

Yes, I have made moss balls. Just use a round stryofoam or florist ball and attach moss using wire plant stakes and green florist wire or string. I love my moss balls, but they aren't so great here in the summer as they dry up.

I think I've just been inspired to make a moss ball like you have displayed in the photo. The walk I emailed you about that Jon and I went on, had an area with a whole bunch of moss by the parking area. Have you ever made one of these moss creations? If so, what did you do to create it.

I knew as soon as I saw the photo up online that this was your post. You've got incredible style. Great job once again.
I don't know how you get away with it, with 4 men in the house and you being the only gal? You must rule!!! : )
