Huh? It is a flower commonly known as "Air Plants". They are part of the bromeliads family. Tillandsias account for 550 of the more than 2,500 species of bromeliads.

Decoration made with Air Plants
There was a woman at the Swappers Meet that made decorations with a variety of air plants,  California grape root/branches and resin characters.  Dale fell in love with them and we chose the bear shown below.
These plants actually flower and reproduce without being in soil.  The grow we chose had 8 different kinds of plants;  two in bloom and one ready to have pups. As they reproduce, we will be able to make more decorations. 
Example of Fairy Garden with Air Plants
So to get the creative juices flowing, I purchased another base and some things for a fairy garden (planning two future decorations.) We will continue to look for a creative branch, interesting stones and a resin eagle for Dale's next creation.  I am looking for a shallow bowl,  some interesting stones,  maybe some tiny resin fish to put in a stream. I will use one of my birdhouse gourds for a fairy house.
Now we need to make sure that we keep the plants alive and reproducing.  Patience and time are two key ingredients.  Keep watching for updates!
