Everyday Inspiration ; Oyster with Pearl, Mid-West Style



I saw this little gem on the sidewalk the other day ... I had to do a double take because at first I thought it was a pearl in an oyster shell.

"I do not weep at the world. I am too busy sharpening my oyster knife ..." --Zora Neale Hurston

I think it might be spider eggs on a piece of bark? Anyone out there recognize the critter?

I live near a lake, but we don't have pearl oysters--just little zebra mussels.

While I think it is either mold or a mushroom, I also think it doesn't really matter. It is just beautiful and can be anything you want. You are the artist, after all.

It is surely arachnid in nature, but I don't know my creepies well enough to say which. I just found your site... it is lovely, and I will visit often!
