There are no lilies entwined within the felted foliage of these pieces.  But I wasn't about to let a detail like that stop me from vaunting my vocabulary.  I love adjectives, and I've always found "loquacious" to be an especially glamorous-sounding one.  It makes me think of beaded gowns and feather fans and, for some inexplicable reason, flamingos.  At any rate, it lends more dignity than "You Grow, Girl!", which was the runner-up for this week's post title.  It's also fitting, as these bejeweled blooms have as much to say as the wonderfully whimsical ones that mouthed off in the 1985, made-for-TV version of "Alice in Wonderland."  I know this because I had a childhood obsession with the campy classic, which now resides on my DVD shelf between View from the Top and the first season of "Girls."  That's fitting too, as it's right smack-dab-in-the-middle of fairy tale and horror.  Watch Carol Channing morph into a sheep just once and you'll know what I mean.
