A Big Thank You and Some Mini Wreaths



Hello Friends,
I would like to thank Otterine for her generous giveaway. I was one of the lucky winners!
I received my goodies yesterday and they are just fabulous. Beautifully and neatly made. I love them!
I chose the grouping with the little green pillows, candle and candle dish, books and darling little mirror.
Thank you so much!

I've been playing with more plants and flowers. At one point in my life I made and sold dried floral arrangements and wreaths and such at local fairs and flea markets.
I've now realized that the designs can be translated into miniature. Joy!!
Tracking down the dried and preserved materials has proven to be rather difficult as most things found in the local hobby stores are much too brittle or too large.
I only want to use natural materials that I am positive will survive and not decompose along with synthetic and handmade flowers and greenery.
So, the search is on ;)
Here are a few wreaths I made last week.

  4. Me encanta como te ha quedado. Yo estoy haciendo algo parecido en un mueble pero humildemente tengo que decir que mi guirnalda no se puede comparar a las tuyas. Enhorabuena es un trabajo magnífico, parecen reales. Un saludo, Eva

  8. How lucky you were to win Brae's giveaway :)

    The wreaths are gorgeous. Unfortunately I'm not sure where you will be able to ship the pretty little things if they are made from natural materials, certainly they would be very unlikely to get into Australia. However not all countries have such strict quarantine laws I guess.
