Fabulous Find Friday

I have been eyeing these little faux moss pieces up well before Christmas at Target. I just couldn't bring myself to buy them for myself till after Christmas.

I truly have a brown thumb, but I seem to be able to grow an amaryllis or two. So I placed the moss pieces at the base of my amaryllis plant in my favorite pot to cover the dirt. I thought this would help my little guy from digging his fingers in the dirt. Instead he thought these looked yummy and took a bite of one. What was I thinking. I just glued it back together, put that side down.

You can find them in the aisle with the vases and vase fillers for about 8 bucks for eight pieces. Now I am hooked on these little things. This post was inspired by the Beautiful Life Linky party at the Inspired Room and Hooked on Houses party. With little ones you can have a beautiful display, even if is only lasts during nap time. Enjoy something beautiful, even it only lasts a moment.

Amaryllis' always reminds me of my husband's grandmother. They are beautiful. I have a few planted outside.

Those are neat! Laughed out loud about the story of your little guy taking a bite out of one.

Thanks for joining my party today and have a great weekend! :-)

I've had my eye on these!! I was waiting until they were on sale but now I'm not sure I can wait.

Love them with the amaryllis!

Oh, how hilarious about your son taking a bite out of it! LOL! I wish I had a green thumb, but maybe an Amaryllis is something I could try!

Thanks for joining in,

I've always like those too! I know what it's like to have a brown thumb. Fake is the way to go!
