On Antiquing Saturday I found these really lovely silk flowers. They are from France and look as though they have been stashed in some body's collection and never used. They are a little squished but I'm sure they can be steamed up back into shape in no time at all. I haven't exactly steamed silk flowers before but I am told that it is relatively easy. A Google search should help my cause......If all else fails search Google !
I am not sure what I will use them on yet....mmmm......still pondering on that one but they are so pretty and I was drawn to the washed out strawberry/peachy colours and I knew they would be perfect for something ! I just need to work out what that 'something' is ! :-)
In the meantime I have popped them into my lace display cabinet. (You can see that lace cabinet by looking HERE.
Yes I know !!!
You have spotted the crowns haven't you ?
Aren't they a little bit special !
I am told they were brought out for the Queen's Corination.
I only have a metre but I DO have something special planned for it.
(I will reveal that in good time.)
It has been a very nice day here today. I have not long returned home from a trip up to my local flower nursery in search for foliage and pretty flowers for Floristry.
It's amazing how the world of floristry has opened my eyes up to the possibilities of planting shrubs and plants that I once upon a time would not have given a second glance too.
Today I bought some variegated Apple Mint (perfect for Summer drinks but I had small posies in mind when I saw it).
I also bought another punnet of Hollyhocks to replace some that the snails had munched their way through. They had left me two solitary plants........very kind of them !
Then to my great surprise my beautiful Mum surprised me with a potted pink lavender bush. She bought us both one......Thanks Mum xo
Now I will wait for the sun to cool down a little and I'll head out into the garden for a play !
Don't you just love Spring time ! It is BLISS !
Springtime makes everybody happy !
Especially the butterflies.
See you all tomorrow
