First I found this little lidded jar at Goodwill for 99 cents. I was quite excited! It's cute and will hold cute things! And then I decided to clean my dresser and I needed a place for the mole skull. Yep, you read that right. (I showed it off here)
Before you look at the photo of the mole skull let me explain one thing. A friend once talked me into watching The X-Files and when I did (By myself. At night.) it was about some guy who caught some thing and everything he touched got covered - covered - in this white moldy webby stuff.
Scared the pants off me! I never watched that show again! I practically cry if there's mildew in the shower now.
When I decided to use my cute little jar to hold my mole skull so it wouldn't break, I decided to cushion it with moss from my yard. I forgot about it for a while and then I looked at it the other day. Guess what?
Do you see the mold fuzz growing off the top of it!! Ohhhhhh that got thrown out so fast. Right after I hyperventilated.
I was kinda sad to lose my strange object because, from a scientific standpoint, I found it completely fascinating. But from a sanity standpoint...it had to go.
You can see my other disgusting moss decorating fail here. If you're brave enough!
