Creative Cue : Stem

The Echoes of the Past people were here in Oshkosh last weekend for their annual historical trade fair. They set the convention center up like an 1800s fur trading post. You can get all kinds of things there you don't see anyplace else--like furs, and knives with deer antlers for handles, antique beads, wool, leather, furs, and beeswax candles ...

The candlelabra made from deer antlers got me thinking of stems for this Creative Cue. Being a Northern Girl, I love this kind of rustic decor.

Here's a picture of a wrack of beads one seller set up at Echoes of the Past. Many of these are antique beads, and very expensive! Lovely rainbow of colors!

See the rest of the Creative Cue Stem interpretations.
