Yesterday, I created this moss covered R for the mirror in our dining room. That mirror was made for me by a dear friend, out of an old window casing that my dad gave us. It came from a barn somewhere in Virginia. To say I love it would be selling how I really feel about it short. A few years ago, one of the parents of a student I worked with gave me this cute "clothes line" kind of Christmas card holder that you put up, and then string up silver decorations that are meant to hold cards. I left the silver "clothes line" part on the window frame, and I hang random stuff off it during the year.
I found the idea for it at The Idea Room. She used some kind of roll out moss that I'm sure went much easier than what I got. I find both the R, and the moss at Micheal's, and along with the ribbon I bought and the 25% off your whole purchase coupon I had, the whole thing cost less than $10. I seriously love it. I didn't moss over the back, and from where I sit at the table, you can see the unfinished wood side of the R. I haven't decided if this bugs me enough to do something about. The Valentine's wreath I made this year had the same problem, and I got over that, so I'm sure in a few days I won't even notice. I wish the R had been bigger, as it's a big mirror, but I love it anyhow.
