Tuesday…with Museum Inspiration

Filed Under : Summer - trips

image I don’t like to plan arrangements; I like to see what I feel like doing when I’m doing it…not styling, feeling…

I’m hugely inspired by textures and basically all sorts of things that get my imagination going.

Today I had to go to London so, as it’s the Summer holidays, thought I’d take my son too and combine it with a trip to a museum…image …taking a walk, looking at inspiring walls and metal panels…image image…but teenagers are not impressed with that stuff; they want to see the dark side of life…imageso we visited Grant Museum of Zoology…which is not for the faint hearted, but perfect for curious boys…imageimage image I struggled with the aesthetics of skeletons and all sorts of things in jars…

…there was quite a pretty cabinet full of glass animal ( or rather invertebrate ) sculptures which were amazing and so life like…but I can’t say I liked the glass slugs!image But the illuminated cabinet type room full of old microscope slides was completely amazing!image…it really reminded me of Space Odyssey
image image image image …and then a tiny exhibit of pretty shells stood out, and stayed with me until I got home…image image image image image image image …and that’s kind of how it happened when I should have been cooking supper!image

    I’ve always loved your arrangements, but this post really made me love them more. I love that you’ve shared your day and what visual inspirations came your way. Those microscope slides are amazing, I agree. Thanks for the great post.

      Thank you so much…it’s funny how little things or strange things inspire me…I had no idea that anything in the strange museum would help create an arrangement later!:)
