Preserved


I saw these at the flea market last week.  I thought they were wonderful and for only $5 each they could be mine.  But I just could not think what I would do with them so I walked on.

These were made to hang around your neck.

These here, well maybe just to look at.

That is where I am at today, the flea market searching for more wonderful items
 but without the slightest idea what to do with them if I had them.
At least I don't buy everything I like.

Its a bit creepy. An insect like this on your neck. Better leave them alone and let them doing their thing to keep balance in nature.

I wouldn't wear a real insect around my neck, I prefer an artist who makes something original. We also don't walk with a fox around our necks anymore isn't it?

I don't like insects, especially large, nasty looking ones. I do love the Dragon Fly, but not to wear unless its jewelry.

Yuk!

Yes, I think it is best that you just captured them with your camera instead of your wallet.

Flea markets are just plain fun...and Lorelei might like one of those to wear. Then again she might not...some things she likes and others she don't...she is 5 yrs old.
