carrion bloom

carrion-plant.jpg carrion.jpg

this bloom is incredible. our friends, eric and rachel, gave us this carrion plant before they moved to new york last month and it put on this stellar bloom yesterday. i've never seen a carrion bloom before. i was thrilled. i wish i would have taken the camera outside before it opened.  earlier in the day, on my way to doing something i else i glanced over and noticed it looked like a balloon and just a few hours later it looked like this. i hope to capture the balloon pod phase in a photo next time around.

display with aqua cabbage patch...


i found these aqua cabbage patch kid shoes in the left foreground that i am using to display some bubble and filigree earrings at an antique store a while back.  i bought them thinking i would cut them up and use the yummy aqua plastic in a few rings/necklaces.....honestly, folks...i just don't have what it takes to cut into them.  i have cut up uncountable number of objects for the sake of "the fun and quirky" but i just can't with these.  guess, i'll just love them just as they are, if that makes me a weinee, sobeit!!!
