End of November Projects …Floral Friday

The month of November in North America is a time of wrapping things up for the year. This is especially true in the agricultural sector. The few remaining crops in the fields are harvested and the lands are readied for the wintertime hibernation period.

The idea of wrapping things up works on a monthly basis regarding hobby projects for me. There are usually a few ideas to be developed and some containers to help manifest those ideas.

The faux-Raku pot contains flowers of mostly dark shades. The floral elements are “stacked” in a manner that visually emulates the partially glazed appearance of the container.

This pair of vintage rust colored McCoy vases sport twin arrangements of spring type flowers. The idea behind this project is the unity of an entire year and our planetary seasons. It’s Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere and Spring in the Southern Hemisphere.

I don’t drink brandy, but this brandy snifter has been sitting on the supplies shelf for awhile. I decided to create a miniature terrarium arrangement for a small cactus.

The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes Oglala Lakota holy man, Black Elk. “The soldiers did go away and their towns were torn down; and in the Moon of Falling Leaves (November), they made a treaty with Red Cloud that said our country would be ours as long as grass should grow and water flow.”
