treasures

So much to report on today that I think I have to do two posts! And I missed a post yesterday. Just as well. If I try to do one every day without fail, and put stress on my perfectionistic self to do it, it may just take the fun out of blogging.The vernissage at Mouche Studio Gallery on Friday evening was great. Anne and Melissa have really done a great job of setting up the gallery and making it an interesting and welcoming venue. Those who attended were so lovely, many of them friends or fellow artists, that I abandoned my wallflower ways for the evening. My friend Monique attended with her husband, John. When John first saw my reliquaries in December 2007, he remarked that he had collected a few things that may interest me. He surprised me by presenting me with a bag of the following objects. What treasures! Stay tuned to see what I do with these treasures!

fossilized sharks' teeth

various seeds and seed pods

these sure are treasures. i especially love the collection of seeds. the ones on the right look like little durians (a southeast asian fruit that is super smelly super good).

kate said...

redredday...thanks for identifying the durians. I didn't know what they were. Now I just have to figure out what the cone-shaped ones are.

Treasures indeed! The fossilized shark teeth have me drooling.
