Mossy Crown today,,,,,,and scroll down a couple if you still haven't entered my Giveaway!

I Woke up this morning, and despite all the things I SHOULD have been finishing/working on/doing, I decided that I wanted to make a Moss Crown. Yep, I'm fortunate that I don't have to go to "work" more than a couple days a week at Joyworks,,,,,,,But lately? I feel like one of those old "Stretch Armstrong Dolls"- Like I'm being pulled in a bazillion directions! Sure, I generally regain my original shape,,but I can look/be totally warped out of shape! Ever get that feeling????? So again, I made a Moss Crown........

Lots of Wire, "Reindeer Moss," Vintage Birds and Mushrooms, eggs and a few flowers....(Okay feel my forehead,),,,,,NO GLITTER! Okay, I take that back, a BIT of subtle Green Glitter in the tulle from Joyworks.......

 Close up,,,,, A few eggs tossed in and New and Vintage flowers and Cotton spun "berries"........

This is the first of these,,,,,,,I had a Ball making it,,,,,,the only thing is the moss is MESSY! This little Crown is going to the  Island Chicks Event,,,,,which takes place in Anacortes this weekend. I won't be there,,,,but my friend Deb Bock of "Garden Party" Fame  Deb's Beautiful Blog and of Second Saturdayz, M&M Antiques in Monroe and well, THE ultimate "Junker and Decor Wizard and Wedding Planner" Will be....She's taking just a Handful of my things. I wish I could be there, I'm just spread TOO thin!
