Working with moss on my lawn got me more interested in moss in general. I discovered five or six different kinds of moss just around my house!
It really is beautiful. I've assembled a small table-top garden from different kinds of moss that I collected around the house (click to zoom in):
The diameter of this bowl is about 8 inches. In order to keep the moss moist but not drowned, I made a hole in the bottom of the bowl and put some water-retaining material (from diapers) under the moss layer.
