Several months ago I ordered an initial to hang in my family room. I ordered the "J" in unfinished wood and painted it black and there it hung . I'm not sure what it was but I was not really loving it painted. It looked a little plain. So, I was recently working with some moss and thought about how my "J" may look covered up in the stuff. So, seeing it in it's plainness I decided to add some moss to it to green it up! Adds a bit more interest, don't you think?
