    ...when I opened the package that Gin sent to me! It was packed full of goodies, but this was one of my favorites! I hope you like the mount, Gin. I LOVE IT!

    Wow, that is NICE!

    It's a good mount for it too... aesthetically fits well together... How did you mount it? I can't see any wires....

    Hey, I just saw the questions about 'how' I mounted this guy. I used a contact adhesive called Crafter's Goop. It dries clear and solid, but flexible. NO wires...lol. Along the edge where the glue shows you can take a little bark dust or moss anything dry and sprinkle on the wet glue. It will mask any visible attachment places. This little guy is heavy, so I glued him in two places. If you look at the photo, in the center of the plant, about half way up there is a broken leaf. That is the big glue spot. Then on the bottom about 1/2 inch from the end, he is attached there too.

    Thanks for looking! AND THANK YOU GIN!

    Cheers!
