I have been making some new flowers and thought I'd show you a few of them, the flower bug has hit hard over here and so as I am making the etsy orders I am thinking of how I can mix it up a bit...
This one has a stiff linen type of fabric for the bottom petals and then some lace that a friend from work gave to me and a ribbon rosette and glass bead in the center.
I have to address the lace fabric, I am able to work on my flowers while I am at work during the quiet time (yup it's a really stressful job...not) and whenever she comes in, her standard question is "so what are you making now?" and she has started bringing me in things to check out and some to share. I love it! She is 78 years old and I love that crafts and junk bring us together, our common bond so to speak.
This one has more of her lace and some chiffon added with a gorgeous old beaded earring in the center.
I know this one doesn't qualify for WW but I am in love with this lavender fabric, it is just so delicate in both color and weight so I made it into a pom flower.
Can you pass up polka dots? Nope, me either!
A lavender dahlia. Help me out, lavender or lilac? It's just the palest purple ever.
This was a special order of my ivory ones, the order was for 4 flowers that were 3" instead of 6" so she can have her bridesmaids wear them! I get so excited when someone uses something of mine for such a special occasion!
Yup, it's like a fabric gardening center over here @ 612... So unlike the planting, watering, and waiting like a true gardener, think Carole or June, instead I sew, glue and fluff!
You can find all of these in my etsy, The Old White House.
It's Wednesday, so you know what that means, I'm linking up to White Wednesday over at Faded Charm, Wow Us Wednesdays @ Savvy Southern Style and Link Love with Tea Rose Home.
Thanks for the parties girls, I always come away with so much inspiration!
Thanks for stopping by,
