Clay flowers, geeky grooms, and a rained-out bride with a smile #Wedding Porn#geeky#non-floral bouquet#rainy#steampunk#superhero November 21 2011 | Catherine Clark bijouxandbits There was an eclectic mix this week in the Offbeat Flickr Pool.

We've got one guy fit for the sprinkler championships and another channeling the '90s with a "wassuuuuup!" Count me in for the Carlton Banks. Photo by Raul Mosley of Redeemed Expressions These boutonnières were made by tribe member booandgagamomma from her late grandpa's nuts and bolts collection in his workshop. It looks like something from some awesome gadget-y robot animated film! Photo by Shutter Art by Debi Looking for something non-floral and kinda different? How about CLAY flowers?! Tribe member Savychacha had hers made by Etsy seller ClayBouquetShop. Photo by Madlove Photography Space-y tie, bro. Jacob's satellite tie is killer with his suit.

I love it!!! lol 🙂 Reply Actually, that tie is much cooler than just any old satellite – it's the Apollo module linking up with the Soyuz module, which was a huge moment in US-Soviet cooperation in human spaceflight.
