When I was in Taiwan earlier this year, my mom took me to an exhibition by the (ok I had to look this up just now) Chinese Floral Arts Foundation of Taiwan. The pieces were so gorgeous, and it was so inspiring! But there was an attendant in every room keeping a careful eye out for surreptitious photo-takers, and I didn't get to hoard all the inspiration i wanted to keep. Alas, in fact, I barely have any photos to remember the event by. In the end, these are inspired off of photos from google, even if the idea of flowering deer was inspired by the memories of those flower arrangements. 

A tour guide told us that part of floral arts was the story behind every piece. I'd like to think that each of these Verdant Deer (Verdeers!) have a story behind their flower arrangement growths as well. Hope you guys are having a great Thanksgiving! <3

These are so stunning! I'd have loved to see the flower show that inspired them, sounds like it was well worth going to. Now I just have to decide whether I like 2 or 3 more before I can make an offer, I'm completely torn between the two!

SHHHHH THERE THERE, I'VE GOT YOU NOW

Have you seen Ellen Jewett's sculpture work? If you were thinking of these as irl figurines, you'll be astounded by her works! * V * It's like.... What I've done here x1000 more detail and awesomeness. Not joking. 

I AM, but I find my ability to eat in absolutely garbage quantities isn't as great as it used to be. XD SO MUCH TASTY FOOD, BUT STOMACH IS SO FULL ; A ; How about you? Enjoying thanksgiving too? :D

SKDJFKSJD when i was younger i thought the no tears meant you could just put it into your eyes indiscriminately so i tried it and...that did not work out well
I LOVE HER WORK it amazes me how organic and rich in texture she manages to get each sculpture...the idea of creatures being taken over by nature is so cool but SHH smacks you gently your work is also beautiful and you have a way with composing and painting flowers! q__q

i feel the same re: the quantity i can eat...instead of shoveling food into my mouth in one go i just keep coming back for more helpings, CAN'T LET THE TASTY FOOD GO TO WASTE! i'm glad you're having a good time though!! mine's been really chill which is kind of a relief after how busy school has been. _(:'3

Y-you poor lamb XD;;;; that sounds incredibly ..... painful ......... Silver lining: you can write to j+j and complain about their false advertising? 

I actually tried to make a sculpture after I first saw her work .... I couldn't even get it to stand upright properly, and the little details I put on snapped off after it dried. WHAT AS I THINKING. Clearly I am not supposed to work with real media. And by that I mean, 'without practicing a lot more'. X3 

MORE HELPINGS. GOOD IDEA. THERE IS MAC AND CHEESE WAITING FOR ME DOWNSTAIRS. DON'T WASTE THE FOOOOOD XD That's great though, nothing better than relaxing with family. :D Or friends or whoever you're relaxing with. <3

Right?! And when you look at flower arrangements irl, it's like. Who thought to put these things together, and why is it so pretty? ;; I wouldn't mind picking the brain of a florist and ask about their compositions, unnngh. 

OH MY, STILL COOKING * V * DOES IT SMELL DIVINEEEEEE? Chicken is great when we don't have a lot of people for thanksgiving.......... THE POOR MAN'S TURKEY, YEP XD
