Winter Orchids and Recycling Art Bottles and Other Blogs

Well, it's another cold, dreary day. The sky is so gray that everything outside seems to be tinted in black and white, sort of like Pleasantville. I feel like I'm in an old BW drama like CBS Playhouse, for which one of my professors wrote. I took my still tiny, petalless orchid to work. It is keeping company with my boss's fantastic orchid and its special like. It was very kind of him to help it along. Right now, it is the Charlie Brown Orchid, not to be confused with my Charlie Brown tree.

In a catastrophic week, one of the perks was my Havanna diet mocha cappuccino with Splenda. I had it in my car all night, sealed. I have to hoard these things and hide them, or young children of all ages and species get to them. There it waited this morning, with promises of being "Delicious Hot or Iced" and a beautiful art deco woman's portrait on the bottle, which I'll save for flowers and flower arranging later. It's one way to recycle bottles.

I love my bottles, come to think of it, and love to use Arizona tea and others with corresponding silk and real flowers. I also like to collect scenes in bottles, and am trying to recover a tiny bridal scene I had when I was small. I love, of course the ships in bottles, and even have dolls and miniature ships in the dolls house.

Here are URLS for other blogs I've started, some for writing and literature classes. There will be another online poetry journal for our local writing center, which is still under construction:

http://memoirlifestory.blogspot.com - A Blog for my seminar on writing memoir.

http://pymbronte.blogspot.com - A Blog for my course on Charlotte Bronte and Barbara Pym, with graphics, pictures, bibliographies and other materials and ideas.

http://dollmuseum.blogspot.com - Dr. E's Doll Museum Blog with book excerpts and materials about dolls and related subjects. Also, the beginnings of a web museum to preview the actual museum being planned.

Please visit often and comment.
