I collect so many organic treasures,

bones, feathers, nests,

dried up insects, seed pods, sea shells,

part of my studio is filled to the brim

like a cabinet of curiosities.

My guys say that one day,

I will forget something somewhere for a while

and it will turn into a mutant,

waking up at night like a living-dead

to attack me ...

You think the Peruvian blue potatoes

left in their dark box

a little longer

could have gone

for my throat ?

The color is exceptional!!! I think maybe they would have gone for your paints and brushes instead... ;)
Glad I'm not the only one who collects natures *oddities*.

haha! I think I like them just the way they are, they make a lovely display, especially with kitty peeking over the box

I love the purple colour...gorgeous. I too collect things from nature, but if I go hunting for them, has to be done during the late Fall or Winter...just hot to go collecting in the desert during the summer. Post more pics of your collections...would love to see them.

They are extremely cool, and even better with the kitty peeking through :)

Your kitty looks just like my Charlie! love him!
I collect SO MUCH STUFF to use in my art projects or to "someday" list them in my Etsy store....I should get to work on that!
Gotta go!

Oh too funny. Love that purple color. Yes I too have a tendency to collect the oddest things and keep them in my stash and then don't want to part with them. Usually the rustier the better.

Haha,that sounds all very common to me.
These potatos might be dangerous, but at least they have a cool colour.
Have a great weekend
