For jewelry with the delicate elegance of living beauty, you must try our flowering earrings. After hanging these exclusive bonsai baubles, their petite prettiness is guaranteed to grow on you, as their soft blooms and tendrils caress and flatter your neck.

The specially nurtured blossoms come arranged in tiny woven gold or silver baskets and wee glass vases, or planted in miniature pots of precious metal or terracotta. Subscribe to colors and scents that match your mood and attire, and don’t forget to take along the twenty drop, watering can.

       Heh.

       Never met you before but I'm glad you came back.
sartep, Jun 16 2003
  

       [Oco Lo'i Dem & Zanzibar] Ah yes, inexcusable of me.
FarmerJohn, Jun 16 2003
  

       You could also hang these from a pierced hole in the forehead. But no thinking person would do that; you'd have to have had a...well, you know.
beauxeault, Jun 16 2003
  

       No, but get too close and you might be attacked by an angry swarm of hummingbirds.
FarmerJohn, Jun 16 2003
  

       This is cute! good job, FJ.
igirl, Jun 16 2003
  

       you have my vote but could you get some lights for Christmas?

       And a sprig of mistletoe to invite a neck peck.

       How does he do it? Amazing.
waugsqueke, Jun 16 2003
  

       Love it. Does anyone know what kind of tiny plant would work in these? I'd love to make some for my wife.   

       Oh, and how is the caulk link related bob?

       Not to be confused with an ear lobotomy...
RayfordSteele, Jun 16 2003
  

       I think the ear lobotomy might be a good thing, though. Damn ears get too smart, and then, before you know what happened, they want to take over!

       Hear, hear!

       And for formal occasions - a tree-ara (groan).
whimsickle, Jun 17 2003
  

       I envisioned the pots as those glass japanese fishing floats. I like the idea of a tiny vine climbing up and out, perhaps trained to grow over a series of small hoops worn higher in the ear.
bungston, Jun 17 2003
  

       hmmm, I voted for this - spits cherrystone into basket.
po, Jun 17 2003
  

       I'd be worried if they started growing *out* of her ears, though. Might just have to take a Q-tip to that...

       Bonsear to go with your Bonseye?

       Venus Flytraps: catch bugs that want to investigate your ear. On second thought, rotting insects aren't so attractive.
kevindimie, Jun 17 2003
  

       [Dimie], you could set up a sundew sort of insect trap by applying thickened Kool-Aid to your own copious ear hair. This would save you the trouble of piercing your ear and cultivating finicky flytraps. For added verve, you could alternate the colors of Koolaid / adherent bugs.

       is it possible this could be extended to the inner skull ? frontal lobe-botany?
neilp, Jun 17 2003
  

       This is rather pleasant for humans but Kats like a very little luggage
The Kat, Jun 18 2003
  

       Hey the Venus flytraps would work great especially if you could mess with them genetically so that they would eat mosquitos. That would be pretty nifty on those long summer nights when mosquitos fly real close by your ear!

       How cool! Fertilizer might create a bit of an odour problem though...
Vardaannawen, Mar 09 2004
  

       next step, flora wear : live plants instead of clothes covering her body. I cannot take as unlikely the posibility that all the flowers had sufficient nutrition. she would search for favourable weather. she would like rainy days, or lie in the sun.. wouldn't that ultimately transform her into some sort of a plant ?
sweet, Mar 09 2004
  

       It's floral. Nice pun, though. +
DesertFox, May 05 2004
  

       reminds me of a book I read, saga of the seven suns, where these green priest would form symbiotic realationship with trees. They didn't have plants grow on them but they did get green tattoes like stuff all over their body...
