Flowers And CowpatsPosted: July 27, 2011
In Vietnam we have a saying, “Like a branch of jasmine in a cowpat” (actually it’s “water buffalo pat”, but “cowpat” sounds better), which is to describe a mismatched couple – usually a guy who gets a girl way out of his league.
That has nothing to do with my outfit, of course. It’s just that I’m wearing these flower wedges which I’ve been lusting after ever since I saw them on Tania and got at Kohl’s for 70% off (no, ShopRuche. I’m not paying full price plus shipping for these), and my necklace looks sort of like… you got it.
I didn’t think about it at all while making the necklace. I just wanted to try my hands at making fabric rosettes. It was only until this morning, as I was walking out the door, that I realized, with the color and the shape, they look more like cowpats than rosettes.
Oh well. At least they’re pretty cowpats, right? 😀
