You guys have made  me feel so happy, seriously there doesn't need to be a contest, I'm just so happy that you like it!

The bug on top is an old Cicada shell, they shed them all over and I tend to hoard them when I find them around the yard.  Although I had left this years batch on the window sill and our un-Texas like rains did away with them Sad So that one is about 4 years old or so.

The winglike appendages on the crown are very delicate, I had broke a few and had to replace them already, I'm wondering if there is a way to make it a bit sturdier... maybe a clear coating? (fresher seeds would work too)

Not sure what I'm going to do with it yet, at the moment I am going to get a clear box to display it in before my cats eat it (oh and they want to!)

I'm glad to hear there are many others who have collections of "bits and bobs" from nature Smiley

I've heard of some crafter's using some sort of clear spray that's found at craft stores to coat wreath's with during holiday season. May want to look into that, maybe it'll make it more sturdy.

Wow!  Love the cicada shell! I also like to collect twigs, insect exoskeletons, seashells, etc.  You're giving me a great idea for a "natural ephemera" swap!!  I would put it in a display box on the the wall, definitely.

Because of your fabulous woodland fairy crown, I hit "This Rocks"  for the very first time!  I am no longer a "This Rocks" virgin, thanks to you.
