Photo Challenge #167 ~ F is for what takes your Fancy {12/12/2012}
 
Like Ina two weeks ago, I still haven't got a photo taken but I wanted to get the challenge posted. I sure hope life will quieten down a bit some time soon! And that we'll have some better light - today was dull grey from start to finish, with rain in the afternoon to make it worse.
We'll have a letter challenge this time round, so anything you like that starts with F - fur, fish, fishing, feathers, fog, frost, friends, flowers...whatever you fancy! I didn't realise we'd already done S so I was busy taking photos suitable for that earlier on the week; back to the drawing board tomorrow!.
What Fun Finds can you come up with to Fit the challenge?

When we were in Paris for our anniversary this summer I bought a lovely wool scarf with a furry fringe. Just now is the time to get it out, our cold weather has really arrived and my regular scarf just wasn't keeping the back of my neck warm!

A flower arrangement in the window of a funeral home I pass near work.

Some felt ornaments from a kit. Well, the lower one is pretty much from the kit. I cut the poinsettia from my own felt with the Spellbinders die and stitched it on with fly stitch and two strands of gold floss for the upper one.

Oops, i forgot to look for a challenge earlier this week. Must get my camera out and get busy. I'm visiting my son in Texas, but it's hardly any warmer than back home.

Sabrina, I went from smiling at your furry fringe, to a real take back on seeing the funeral parlor! Your felt ornaments are pretty too. I haven't been thinking of things that start with an F, but I did buy a new purse yesterday (well, my son calls it a suitcase, as it is large enough to hold my laptop.) It is faux leather. We also have some fruit on a shelf here!

Lovely bag! You have me hankering after a fruit salad now, with a dash of lime juice to give it some extra bite. That's a great photo :D.

F for the four seasons. These are sculptures by Peter Haas.

Audrey, these are so cool! Are they live sculptures.....are the plants real?

Nothing live about them. Winter which is in the back on the left has a lemon that is the size of a small child. Counter clockwise from winters is summer, spring and then fall. These were quite large. I took this with my 24-85mm lens set at 24. A couple of weeks ago I bought a 10-24mm wide angle lens and think I will go back to the Botanical Garden to see if I can do better. Hope you are enjoying your Christmas.

Oh gosh, those are amazing. I know that somewhere in the back of my mind is the correct technical term for those objects/images created with flowers and fruit like that, but it's well stuck in the back of my mind! I've often seen drawings, but never 3D sculptures.

All I know is that they are acrylic sculptures and Phillip Haas was inspired by the Italian Renaissance artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo's painting series The Four Seasons.
