Hi Everyone! I am joining Elizabeth and the T Tuesday gang with yesterday's lunchtime cup of Jerry Cherry tea and some Italian Lady Fingers.
This is the first room you enter which served as a little introductory to the craft. The sign explains the historical origins of flower beading and if I remember correctly introduces the theme of how everything changes with the passage of time. Combined with last year's leaves and dried botanical elements from the grounds of the museum it reminds us that all is transient in this world. It also gives hope by showing the changing of the seasons and the promise of new life. (Heavy thoughts!)
This room represented Winter. It was dark with spotlights on each of 6 arrangements in silver and white and muted color schemes. The bottom right photo shows the ceiling and there was soft tinkling music in the room. These three are my work. I just fell in love with the shadows!
That's all I have time for today. Thanks for stopping by for a cup of tea!
