paper flowers.

This last week we celebrated Veteran's Day - Remembrance Day - or Armistice Day. The Flickr blog posted this collection of images, which I thought were lovely, albeit humbling, and sad, and sobering.

I love real flowers, but this is certainly an alternative. Whatever your politics, I'm glad there's day to remember and to thank those who have served, risked or given their lives.

The images above reminded me of the paper flower kits from Paper Source, which someday I may try to construct. I've never known what I'd do with these, but I am liking the idea of found-object chandeliers lately, and so maybe a falling, paper-flower chandelier can be added to the list of someday-projects.
