A cold & more specimens

My husband shared his germs with me and they've done me in. I'm a sad sort of wreck at the moment, all sniffly, achey, and feeling generally out of sorts and all kinds of Blah!

Despite being sick I've finished up a rather large batch of faerie specimens under glass. I've got the first lot up on esty and will post more over the next week or so.

I think my favourite part of making these is coming up with the different stories for the specimen labels. This set includes the following:
No. 008.12 - Discovered one Tuesday in my sewing box. (Must secure the lid from now on!)
No. 016.12 - Noticed growing at the very back of the top desk drawer in the upstairs library.
No. 014.12 - Unearthed beneath a pile of odd socks sitting next to the washing machine.

It's a nice little exercise in creative thinking coming up with the one line stories. I highly recommend it :)

I'm off to vegetate on the couch and think about all the things I should be doing. I think watching an old movie and napping will probably do me better than housework this afternoon. I'll leave you with a lovely photo of the our lovely crooked house taken this past weekend when the world was fluffy and white.
