With Komplements

It took four matches and the eventual use of a (new) Marilyn inspired bag stuffing to successfully burn dead flowers for six dollar fence flowers. Ash clouds made in memory, among peg ghosts with komlements.

  1. Well you certainly know how to build suspense. I would have thought those things would burn more easily. They look so dry. Did it smell good when they burned?

      Yeah so did I. They were actually quite moist within the dry outer. They smelt like shit, and I stunk horribly thereafter.

      Yes. Always have been a burner of things. Not sure if people really trust me with flames though, left the stove on the other day. Whoopsie Daisies!

      • An English design house and retailer specialising in nostalgic romantic designs and often using repeated patterns and motifs across product ranges – a sort of precursor to Kath Kidston.

        Oh ok, interesting stuff! In general, the word motif is nice, and I like it

      • How come you didn’t know, given your clock is from Laura Ashley?

        Yes, ‘motif’ is a nice word. It sounds like the sort of thing you say to yourself having acquired new dentures.

        I didn’t even realize what you were on about, until last night when I drew the darn clock. I just thought you were rambling on about something and I thought, oh ok, that’s nice.

        I live with my parents, so they brought the clock not me. They pretty much have brought everything in this house, except for all the Ikea stuff, that’s me.

      • Aha, well then I mustn’t have been making much sense originally. “A-clock-tick” = “eclectic”. “Matching patterns” was a pun on you using matches to set the flowers aflame. “Laura Ashley’s” was another pun on “ashes”.

        Yes, Laura Ashley is very much an oldies thing. It’s for people who like to have those kind of bedrooms where everything matches, almost to the point that you can’t see where the bed ends and the curtains begin, sort of thing. Not eclectic! 🙂

        Hah, looks like the room I grew up in, if rooms were a line of floral paint
