Great Finds: Moss Wreaths from the Farm
Chattanooga. A rolling stone may gather no moss, but a shady area of a Tennessee farm sure does.
Artist Autum Edwards takes a portion of the lush green moss that grows at her family’s farm in Lenoir City to create long-lasting holiday wreaths.
“The wreaths last a long time and are low maintenance,” says Autum. “Simply spray a bit of water on the moss from time to time.”
“I like to give them a spritz of an essential oil such as peppermint, too,” she says. “They hold the holiday aroma well.”
The small wreaths are handmade with lovely embellishments and would be easy to transition from the immediate holidays to the duller days of winter. A little green in our lives is elevating. Their simplicity stands apart and caught our eye. We think they are the perfect hostess gift for a holiday party, too.
These wreaths are available for purchase in Chattanooga at Vinterest Antiques: ‘Where Artisans and Pickers Gather.’ Look for the Lala Designs booth.
Vinterest Antiques owners, Paul and Katherine Schurer, have created a unique 16,000-square-foot shopping destination tucked into suburban Hixson. Vendors offer antiques, vintage items, jewelry, and currently the holidays are on hyperbole mode there with items for the home and garden. If you are looking to get in the holiday spirit, wander through Vinterest.
