A few days ago I was watching my local Fox news and learned this month's pollen levels in Missouri are the worst it has been in the last 30 years. That explains the severity of my allergies for the past two weeks. I have been suffering with the itchiest eyes I have ever experienced in my life; without much relief even after taking 3 eye medicines, Zyrtec, Sudafed, and finally, sleep-inducing Benadryl. *sigh.*
So, in between the eye washes, the eye drops, and the congestion, I manage to seclude myself inside my air-conditioned home while I glare longingly out my bright windows to play outside, watch the wind blow the allergens in the air, and observe all of the cars coated in yellowish-green pollen. Where or where is the rain? More importantly, where, or where is my relief?!
But I have a sense of humor through all this. Many artisans find beauty in the natural world, and some even find beauty in -- yes -- pollen. This week's Fab Finds focuses on those who have been inspired by the beauty of springtime outside and of my current nemesis. Enjoy!
The focal piece is wheel-thrown and embellished to look like pollen in its center. Unique.
