so i just love how pottery barn used dead spanish moss in their most recent fall/halloween display.
and of course they sell it for an obscene price. but i still love the look. oh, and i (and my sister-in-law) love the old books stacked under the cloche!
anyway, i wanted to add some to my mantel in the gift shoppe. so i went to walmart and got two bags for $2.50 each. score!
pottery barn – 0 … michael – 1
and here’s what i came up with.
obviously there is a lot going on here as this is a shoppe not a ‘home mantel’. but you get the idea.
i hung some from the mirror …. tucked other clumps in here and there.
it looks a bit spooky … but still rustic and warm. … if that makes sense.
but be warned … it makes a heck of a mess! have your sweeper (yeah … we say sweeper in central pa … not vaccum) on hand. and i love the smell of it too. that probably sounds weird … but i do. do you know the smell i mean?
i love having the flexibility and opportunity to always be changing things and moving things around. do you find yourself doing that a lot too? i’d go crazy if i couldn’t. some things work. some don’t. that’s the fun!
but i do like the way this looks. don’t you?
