A Time to Shine

•January 19, 2012 • 1 Comment

In winter, all that’s green glistens. To arrange this moss

crystal basket,  I began by placing moss in the base for

color, then tucked in moss on top being careful to mound to

reflect the shape of the basket, and finally trimmed with

woodland finds using ivy, fern, lichen, and willow (I had to

add pics to hold some of the the willow ends in place).  If I

keep this moist, all will stay fresh and shine for weeks.

Winter Bloomers

     I keep telling these lovely anemone that it’s winter and time

to go to sleep – but their happy faces keep smilin’ on in the

unheated hoop house. To arrange, I just added what I could

find nearby –  ivy, sweet smelling rosemary, fern, willow,

and a turkey feather for good measure. To make the willow

loop, just bend back a taller stem and attach it to itself with a

 rubber band or baggie tie.  Have fun!

start with a straw wreath, add spanish moss, then moss from the woods, and whatever the woods offers
