Party Hats and Garden Wisdom


 'everything is funny if you can laugh at it...'
 'fall in love, stay in love...'
'there are always flowers...' 
'work is the cure...' 
'nothing is ever too small...'
'things are always better in the morning...'
'it's no use going back to yesterday...'
 'fantasy love is much better...'
 'just go blindly to it...'
 'everyone remembers something...'
 'begin at the beginning...'
 'suffer each other...'
'your heart is the map...'





(I created this series with cabinet portraits I found in different antique shops around Chicago and used different plants and flowers from my garden to create their "hats".  I hope you enjoy the wisdom they impart along with their wonderfully somber expressions which I found so unusual compared to the relentlessly "happy" photos people post of themselves today... :))

  1. somber....maybe life was more difficult in those days but i don't think today's happy expressions are always genuine.

    1. thanks George, indeed, i think the irony is that people today seem more unhappy and prone to dissatisfaction than the people who lived through earlier less modern times...
