it's true ~
as in flower petals!
and i have my absolute favorites,
as i'm sure do all of you.
it has been cold and rainy here...
just look how these delicate petals take it!!
they are almost luminous,
are they not??
and how about these
"girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes"
these are a few of my favorite things!
and if you casually sniff a rose
in your garden one day,
and pulled back a petal or two,
would you be surprised to find a flower fairy
i, myself, am always looking for such things...
why just look!
i found this tiny fairy girl
taking refuge under a few petals
to keep her wings dry.
she was pretty well hidden,
i spied her just the same!
and doesn't she look to have made herself quite comfortable?
she has even hung a petite chandie!!
beautiful petals don't always have to be real ~
sometimes they are made out of vintage linen too...
i tried to collect that clever flower fairy for my handmade cloche
she was having NO PART of that
and got away!!
i told her it was just for a picture
and she said:
i've heard that before!!
now you will just have to settle for a few shell hearts
and dried up sea moss instead...
i made this petite fairy cloche
i WILL collect one!
((and of course, i'll let her go again))
it is out of a marble candlestick holder
and a small saucer plate from germany.
i simply glued them together with a bit of "liquid nails"
and added a glass cloche
which just happens to be an upside down
~ all pieces are from the thrift store!
you just never know what inspiration the rain will bring :)
i'm sharing this with:
