D/ Alphabe-Thursday

DELIGHTFULLY Whimsical DESIGN #1: hat

I hope you have a good sense of humour today so you can enjoy these DELIGHTFULLY DISTINCTIVE whimsical DESIGNS made of natural materials, part of the Milne House Garden Club art show last week at the Toronto Botanical Garden.
 
DECORATIVE and DRAMATIC, this hat is made of bleached palm bark, and DRIED aspidistra.

DELIGHTFULLY Whimsical DESIGN #2: purse

Perfect for just about any DIGNIFIED occasion,  this DIVINE purse is made of reed, aspidistra leaves, eucalyptus and a peacock feather.

DELIGHTFULLY Whimsical DESIGN #3: wig

Sometimes my hair feels like straw but never quite like this. Yep, this elegant wig is indeed made of straw and a broom! Isn't it a DOOZIE?

lol … one never knows what one will find in a garden these days! These are delightfully creative and such a clever way to include the natural world in our daily wear. :)

Kathy said...

The hat is definitely something that might be seen as being sported by some of the royals! It would have fit right in at the wedding, dontcha think? I would carry the purse in a heartbeat!

The creativity just leaves me speechless. The first one is gorgeous, certainly "wearable"!

Janie said...

Funny as well as whimsical! I could never think up such clever designs.

clever...

I'm all for the natural look, but this might be a bit too natural if you know what I mean...

I love this kind of thing, but to look at, not to wear. It is not practical. It is artwork for sure. :)

No need to be insanely jealous--these photos are courtesy of the Wichita Botanical Gardens. It is an absolutely beautiful place with many little secluded spots to sit and enjoy the lovely surroundings. Yes, I'd love it if my yard looked like that, but I want plenty, let me repeat that, plenty of maintenance people around to keep it looking that way. I love your post--those hats and the purse are just too creative and cool. How do people think of these things!!!! Mickie :)

Jingle said...

the Designs are indeed delightful.

Randy said...

Yes you too can dress like Mother Nature! I love it.

edenhills said...

Those are certainly some interesting designs! I admit, I enjoy most things with peacock feathers.

That was pretty amazing. Don't let the Royal Family know...someone will want a hat like that for the next wedding.

JDaniel4's Mom said...

What fun! I love the first hat.

Rose said...

I am so thankful that hats are not required...although I used to have one I wore all the time. I actually think that first is kind of cute...

And I always say my hair feels like it is a wig laying up there...and as far as feeling like straw...mine always fooled the calves at home...I had several try to eat it.

Jenny said...

Wow. Kentucky Derby meets the Royals!

What a fun stop today. I really liked the creativity in these designs!

Thanks for a delightful stop this week.

A+
