Less than a week ago I went for a run in our neighborhood and discovered a few things while I did.
My eyes tend to catch things that others see as junk but I see as things that could be used.
ie. 5 blue tabs, 6 cents ( a penny and a nickel ), 2 pinecones, a dum dum wrapper (if you collect enough you can buy something from the site :)) a coke point and last but not least was honked at once. lol
I ran down to a corner and upon turning around so as to not cross the road I noticed a bright red fake flower, I took mental note of it and kept running, I crossed the street to other side and discover there were many more fake silk flowers and leaves scattered throughout the sidewalks... trash underfoot. Puzzled, I wondered where they had come from and why no one had bothered to pick them up. There was a lot of legitimate trash on the sidewalks as well... maybe no one was designated to pick up the trash. That's about all I can figure :s
I later realized that the flowers must have been blown at some point from the cemetary, not even a block away... and just scattered so no, no one was going to come looking for them.
Last night I finished a bowl with red accents and decided it was time to go out and grab the flower for a prop :)
I went out with a small grocery bag and a latex glove :) lol here's what I found :
and here I used the red flower :) I first saw :)
My Husbands so great - as I finished rinsing the pieces off he came into the kitchen to grab a snack, gave me a kiss and said, "oh, our sink looks pretty now" :) I love that he can be playful :) that still makes me smile just that he said that. :)
I'm sure to use these pieces in a project or as a prop, so keep an eye out, ya hear!?!? ;)
