happy / heart
L - Nikon D60 / T- phone pic (click to see the sketch)
Aren't pansies the happiest little flowers? The symbolism associated with the pansy is "merriment" and "you occupy my thoughts" - seems appropriate because of their cute little "faces". I'm sure you know that Pansy flowers are edible – they have a taste reminiscent of grapes and mint. I've never actually used them in a meal myself but have had them on a salad at a fine restaurant. Have you ever used pansies in your food? / i am so busy right now. sorry i haven't been participating in the blog very much lately. this is a project i am trying to finish up for my 3D class. we were given the assignment to create a soft sculpture and i chose to make a 3-dimensional soft heart out of red velvet with purple crocheted veins. it's hard to tell what it will look like at this point but you can see my pencil sketch and parts of the sculpture. in my head it was really cool... i hope i can carry it through.
The photos on the left are taken by me, Leslye, the mother. The photos on the right are taken by my daughter, Taylor – unless otherwise noted. Comments are always welcome. thanks
If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
