Time to REVEAL all!

MAYday - It started with breakfast and the sun shining so I took it outside, coffee and toasted teacakes (I'd run out of bread for toast!) As you can see the table paint has also disintegrated and will need an uplift ready for summer outside meals!!
How the garden has grown since the winter pictures - my sheep skull peeping out from between the fennel! Let's see what it is protecting................
The residential insect life now needs to find a new residence!
The wrappings unwrapped - the slides and film are looking interesting!
Another little bug creeping about in yellowing pages!

This is the tea bag fabric hung out to dry - not as marked as I'd hoped - but I did join in this project rather late!

The brown envelope looks promising!

But I do feel bad about disturbing all this insect life!

Even this fat slug is hiding from me and hoping I won't find it amongest the holiday pages!
So there we all - all unwrapped and ready for the next step!

Poor pessimistic me, I was hoping for more "rot". I had imagined certain things would happen by this time but they didn't. Certainly the insect kingdom is out in fine form and doing their bit. So six weeks isn't really a long time for much to happen apart from that. What is the next step?

Wonderful post! Love that last shot especially. Watch out for those slugs.

Margaret - I too had hoped for more rot but I am going to prepare another package and leave it for a whole year this time!!! Ongoing stuff I think
Candace/Jeanne many thanks
Char - yes it really is!
Annie - good luck
Kate - great to hear from you again - hope all is well?

I've seen demolition of buildings before but that is an amazing sight...tanks and pipes!
I think the bugs were just getting started!

Not wild about the slug but the rest looks interesting. Lots of odd little things to work with.

lynne h said...

oh my! i would so be thinking about displacing those bugs too! between your disintegration results and robyn's (art propelled), i'm inspired to bury some stuff today. i'm off to find abandoned metal to rust right after i finish this...

I wanna do this...I live in a muggy buggy region in Texas, the perfect place for ALTERING ANYTHING!!

You uninvited creatures were familiar to my wrapped accordion books but your pages look great with the dance of transformation in your colors and marks. I love the fiber elements also. Imagine and Live in Peace,, Mary helen Fernandez Stewart

Well, your bundles have a good deal of WOW and quite a bit of eeewww for the bugs! Will be interesting to see what happens next.
