My attic, garage, basement, well the whole house is full of stuff that's just too good to throw away, supplies for future projects, plant pots, etc. You name the worthless junk and you'll probably find it somewhere around here. I have enablers and every now and then, I'll find special gifts on my front porch from my friend Florence. A weke ago, these showed up:
They're Chinese jade trees which at one time looked similar to the one in the image below that I borrowed from Ebay. Florence's husband, Howard, has tons of these stored away as he imported Chinese antiques for years. They have fallen out of favor a little bit and the carved stone and glass leaves, flower petals and berries make great objects to include in mosaic and other glass projects so they are cut off leaving these pots with bare trunks and branches.
In a conversation, I mentioned to Florence that I thought the two of them were interesting. Somehow they multiplied after I mentioned that.
Please save them from a trip to my attic where they'll most likely be forgotten and help me think of something fun to do with them. I was thinking maybe tiny Tillandsias wired to the branches or maybe ornaments of some sort. What would you do (besides throwing them away?)
(How's this for a segue to try and make it o.k. to post a totally random picture at the end of the post?)
