Plastic Flower Paperweights

Crazy flowers grow in the jungles of kitschdom.

The blue one came from my early days of kitsch-collecting. When I was a teenager, I bought a lot of stuff like this when I would visit the flea markets that were near my school.

The orange one came home a few days ago. The wires bend and twist and can be creatively used to hold the mail or something, too.

    Love that some of the flowers are stuck into the little resin balls that they make the grape arrangements out of. Resin is pretty fascinating to me all the way around and it never had more of a heyday than in the 60s and 70s.

    I love that you twist the wires so they can be used to hold “the mail or something”. Thats excellent that you find a use for everything.

    They all look great together in your own private little jungle garden.
