i thought if i really can do it in 5 minutes, i will take part...
(i was sceptical, because i´m not a big fan of Brown - except rusty things)
but i actually could find these things within very short time:
the Background (1) is a tote bag i rusted last year, (2) some hazelnuts, (3) sunprints of this year´s experiments, (4) hot water bottle, laying around as i have a Lumbago, (5) a gemstone, (6) Shell of a razor clam, found in denmark, (7) matchbox (with muybridge mini flip-book inside) - a gift from dymphie meeuwissen from one of her advent-calendars and (8) three sticks of cinnamon (from a whole bundle i bought in egypt - more than 30 years ago - for decoration purpose, and actually i still love them [i think they would no longer be good for cooking use after all that time])
(find more Brown collages here)
the garden is full of mushrooms (esp at the Areas where cherry trees had been; i think they are coming along their old roots)
if i googled right, these should be Armillaria mellea (engl, dt) - edible, but i do not dare to eat them anyway, as they sometimes cause stomach upsets. i won´t try (i´m a faintheart when it comes to mushrooms...).
does the snake (clay) have a stranglehold over the mushrooms
or have they captured the snake?
and as the temperatures are low meanwhile, i thought a hot chocolate would lift my mood:
rather boring to Show, but meditative to do (best when watching tv...):
unseaming old Jeans
(with some boro sewing in my mind)
i will be away next week, meeting with stamp pals in the Harz mountains.
weather forecast could be better, but we surely will have fun.
so "see" you again in two weeks.
