Designing Living Art out of items one may find on a nature walk or in their back yard.

Recently I was given a box of items found in nature. Some of the items were Mushrooms, Sticks, Wood, Hornet Nests, and Lichen. How will I use these? I wanted to make something, maybe several things that I could add plants and create Living Art.

Finished art can be seen and bought at theflowerflat.com

As Chicago is an easy city to walk, and every block has something interesting to discover, you will find me walking somewhere almost everyday.

As I am walking, I am always looking for a new discovery.  Below are a few of those wonderful beautiful discoveries.
