Today I made homes for the moss I found on the road. I arranged three simple terrariums the largest contains moss, fern and a few birch twigs for decoration and the other two are just moss or just fern. I didn't do much with decorating because I'm not sure of how well the environments will work. These three are sort of samples for bigger environments I hope to create later. I have high hopes for these three and I'm already plotting a very large terrarium scene complete with doll house furniture.
While I was at the thrift store looking for glass jars yesterday, I found these great Mt. Rushmore souvenir plates and bought two. It has been a long time since I've gone thrifting and I used to do it all the time. I thought I was really amazing at finding treasures but time has revealed that I just get excited about things that aren't really so spectacular. I feel confident that these plates are pretty great though.
Also, I posted a week or two ago about my parents' dog being sick. I feel I should give the update that she passed away this morning at home. The cancer progression was rapid. We're all trying to be comforted by the idea that her pain didn't last long and that her life was good after she came to live with our family. She was a rescue who definitely was meant for the finer things in life. She was nine years old and acted like an exuberant puppy until she became sick. She was a crazy snack-obsessed girl who played endlessly with her ball-on-a-rope and we will all miss her too much.
