Welcome to my shop! I have always loved to draw~whimsical and kooky themes are favorites and Spoonflower really allows one's imagination to go wild. If you would prefer a different size in a design just message me.

Description:

This is my entry in the Herb Garden contest. I hope you like it and I thank you for taking a look.

Poor Herb. He's a basil leaf that just been plucked to go in Miss Chef's masterpiece...she has him in her clutches! He's a tad upset, as are his 3 basil leaf friends up at the top of the plant watching this in horror. What if plants can feel things?.....hmmmmm. Upset leaves above are saying "Holy crap!!! She's got Herb!!!". Next one says "Oh. My. GOD!!!". Next one says "I can't watch this....". ;o) Please use rulers at top and side of view window to determine size/scale of design. Thank you. This design is available as fabric, wallpaper, decals and gift wrap. Smaller scale version available as well.

amy_g says: Hi sopacc, I would suggest ordering this version of the design, http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/3327942 It is the tea towel version on linen cotton canvas...It measures 27" x 18" which is one fat quarter. What you see in the view window is what you would receive. There is a white border around it from the printing process. And if you don't want it framed anymore you can just hem up the edges and have yourself a kitchen towel. So just copy and paste the above address in your browser and just order one fat quarter in the linen cotton canvas. I hope that helps and thank you so much for your interest. Amy

jill_o_...

jill_o_connor says: Great design and very interesting topic! There are some Fruitarians that only eat fruits that have naturally fallen from the tree or bush because picking the fruit, leaf etc does indeed hurt the plant. Not sure how that works with root vegetables though! Amy, your design is fabulous :-)

It has been fascinating to read everyone's comments on this one - this turned out to be a surprisingly thought - provoking design! I especially liked Whimzwhirled comments about Native American practices, much food for thought there.

whimzwh...

whimzwhirled says: This is a wonderful, fun designs as I am use to seeing from your beautiful brain dear. It does sort of make you feel bad about the plants feeling thing. Many native tribes practised asking the plant or animal they were harvesting for consumption permission to nurish themselves and their tribe with the plant or animal through prayers and chants. I always thought that was a wonderful, kind hearted ritual. They knew plants could feel long before the scientist confirmed it.

su_g

su_g says: Too funny for words! Love your word play on "Herb" too - and so much fun to read through all the comments, you've brought out the punning best in your commentators - love Alex's "Basil... for the chop" and Sue Ellen's recommended reading on the sentience of plants, was just reading about experiments reporting on plants that respond to the noise of leaf-munching caterpillars by upping the quantities of bad-tasting chemicals in their leafs so looks like there's good science behind it too!

amy_g

amy_g says: Sue Ellen, I just saw a documentary on plants and they did come to the same conclusion...that plants can feel!!! It is a horrifying thought...so here is my humorous take on something that could be disturbing. Thank you Sue Ellen for taking a look and the book reference, I may have to read that....or not? :o(

fireflower

fireflower says: Oh, dear! I can tell that no one here has read The Secret Life of Plants!! This amazing book by Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird presents scientific evidence for the sentience of plants, and that they really are horrified by casual whacking and the like ... and that they feel empathic horror for other plants and animals that are feeling pain. So Amy has, in the long tradition of jesters and comedians, told the truth, gently couched in humor ... and quite well drawn, too.

One day I was plucking dead leaves from my patio garden and this got me wondering about whether plants have any sensation of leaves being pulled off...then this design came to be. Funny how the mind takes these weird leaps and bounds from one thing to another! Cartoonist, maybe one day when I grow up! Thanks, Christine :o)

christi...

christinewitte says: Hahhahhah, Amy, this is great! :D You never disappoint with your humorous designs!! I still think you could try to be a cartoonist - you'd do so well! The expressions on the chef's and herbs' faces are priceless! :) Good thing plants are non-sentient or I'd have a problem...
