Yesterday, Anie and I rolled around on the rug with boredom. Mistress Muse was not amused. She hoisted us up by our paws and took us on one of her famous nature walks. Our assignment was to invite the plant people to tea. In order to invite plant people to tea you have to collect a variety of flora and assemble them as guided. The plant bits actually tell you what to make.
We came back with a large pile of gorgeous plant bits…colors, shapes, textures and sizes.
Anie’s first plant person was a delightful young girl named Fiona. As you can see, she wore a velvety purple dress and feathery leggings.
Bunny Boy was full of mischief. He would wait until you focused on something else and then he’d stick his fuzzy little ears in your ear. Anie said he got annoying after a while but I found him amusing.
Anie and I were both taken with Penelope’s crown. She was a warm, generous girl who enjoyed giving big hugs. Anie wondered if she might be half bear because of the giant hugging and her purple, fuzzy ears. After all the guests arrived, Anie, Mistress Muse and I all sat down for a lovely pot of grandpa’s honey tea and dewdrop mousse. Needless to say, our boredom lifted.
I was secretly jumping out of my skin! Here was yet another sustainable art project for us to do. We turned our guest’s pictures into wonderful, handmade birthday cards for our family. Anie took the leftover plant bits and made fairy sandwiches, tucking them into nooks and crannies in trees and bushes. And, we composted whatever was left over. What a special day with the plant people! And thank you to a very special artist, Elsa Mora, for the inspiration.
