I have a fondness for creatures. As my husband has learned through 8 years of walking by my side, we don’t get very far without meeting new friends. Dogs strain at their leashes, cats appear out of nowhere, squirrels and crows sit next to me on park benches. I like to catch snakes, rescue snails from the sidewalk, and share sandwiches with wasps. I’ve never been bitten or stung. It’s like they know.
Like the swarm of pewter bumblebees that found me at Pacific Galleries this weekend.
Quirky, not too cute, and in a mix of metallics that complements the gold and silver already in my china cabinet. I can see these sweetening up all kinds of tablescapes, but I’m busily testing out place settings with a honeyed theme.
