Oh Hart Beat, the happiest of Friday’s to you. This week was both super long and super short (if you know what I mean) and I’m glad that the weekend is here for time to relax and catch up with my friends. Tonight Pedro and I are going to one of my favorite restaurants in Brooklyn (HOMETOWN BBQ, do you know it?) and I can’t wait to eat all the pulled pork that I can handle.

Anyway, one of my friends at work shared with me these 3d flower constructions from pressed flowers and cut out flower pictures by the extremely talented artist Anne Ten Donkelaar and I can’t stop thinking about them. Norwegian artist Donkelaar has published these pieces on her website and describes them as,

Each element is meticulously placed on pins which creates the depth. Some of them are like a fantasy Herbaria, filled with dried flowers or branches, with irregular shapes and sophisticated twists and some refer to planets.

Aren’t they amazing, Hart Beat? I would love to have some of these up in my apartment. They remind me of the time when I used to wear flower crowns all the time. Perfect for the first day of May.

P.S. Love seeing what I was thinking about last May.. oh how things never change.
