Moss Collector...Hello that's me!

Haven't shared my personal photos with all of you
for quite awhile now...I think today is the perfect Day!
Anywayyy...
remember when I mentioned that I wanted to
collect moss in the countryside? Well, here are moments
captured on that weekend-day! ~take a look...
.

Have you ever climbed a tree?
Well... I was high up there collecting some moss!
The good thing was I did not fall nor break any bones...
[important note: do not wear high heels!!!]
.

Back on the ground, I gathered more of
nature glorious nature...
[Some of the best things in life are FREE indeed!]
.

was trying to gather & create something from nature.
You can see one of my assistants busy sniffing away...
Well, that's Miss Nia, one of my 5 Pugs. I named her 'Nia'
cos' when she was a puppy, she had a hernia ~thus NIA!
errr...it's a simple sweet true story, really!!
.

" Voila!!! ~done! "
It's my own version of a Japanese Zen Garden...
miniature style of course~
.

I displayed it by the kitchen window...
& later decided to move it to the dining table~
.

...enjoying the view of the mini garden
while sipping a hot cup of green tea...
" ~OOOMmmmmm.... "
.

Must say it's always nice to bring
a little bit of the outdoor - indoor...
.

This solid Indonesian Teak wood table is
one of my favorite piece in my humble home~
confession time: whenever I'm stressed out, I like to
polish this wood! 'Polishing away' all my problems...
~well it works! I feel so much better afterwards...errr-errr???
.

~Well everyone,
That's just a mini slice of my weekend in the country!
It's Friday...finally! ~WooHoo!!
May I say; I am very-very-VERY Excited!!!
(no 'ZEN' moment for now!)
.
" Peace! "
...weekend here we come~XOXO*

That's something to be proud of.

photojoy said...

Oh, you picked up mosses from a tree! What a professional collector! It's great to know you enjoy Bonsai. I don't know how to but I know how to sweep mosses. haha Have a nice weekend. You know something? My laptop was broken! I've got to get a new one soon. By the way, did you get "iPad"?

Sam said...

That is so cool! I think that mini zen garden is so sweet and the proportions and arrangement show great flare and chutzpah - like everything you do! :0) Love that your peeps helped too - very important! I always feel when Harry is watching me when I sweep the yard or am doing some gardening he is thinking "one day I will do that too" and he's watching in order to figure out how it's done!

Hope you have / are having a wonderful weekend sweetie! XOXO's

Punctuation Mark said...

I have become such an avid plant collector in my adulthood, but I must say I've never considered decorating with moss...until now. You, my dear, are an inspiration!

Lenore that is gorgeous, I feel my blood pressure lowering by just looking at it...so tranquil and beautiful. Can you please come over and make me one. I love your table too, the wood is incredible. I just dropped a wood table on my bare foot and can barely walk...I should always wear heels it is the only time I don't get hurt..I am very accident prone.
