I am obsessed with moss, so I was thrilled to learn that the Nutmegs are, too, and that they want their little woodland retreat to feature plenty of it. For the past week, the mice and I have been busy plastering the exterior and interior walls, adding a polished pebble foundation, and doing a little painting.

While Mama and I were occupied with the interior paint job, Papa and Mira padded through the woods on the hunt for moss and other plants to help their little home blend in better with its surroundings. Papa decided to root a few flowering plants near the base of the house, draping their vines up and over the walls. We’re so pleased with how it turned out!

Next up is adding a bit more moss around the windows, like the one below, and then we can start in on the interior decorating. Fun, fun!
