Quite a few of my designs lately include roses… Today’s design is a vintage rose I discovered recently… I fell in love immediately.
I think I may be sporting this one to Atlanta this week!
Hope everything comes up roses for you! Have a great day!
A trio of forever flowers, wired into a pendant… Created on the fly watching volleyball yesterday. This is my favorite…
the above photo of the girls is their cheer, they lay in a circle on the ground pounding their hands on the gym floor. Pretty cute.
They had an awesome day yesterday. They played up a level and for their first tournament, they split two matches, lost one. In playoffs they beat the Team from our town that is a year older to move onto the championship game. Then they lost in three games to take second. Fun stuff.
An update on baby Bill… I can hear him cooing as I blog. He woke up seven times between 11 and 5 this morning. Finally Keegan said, I am waiting FOREVER to have a baby. I guess it’s working!
Got to run to a flea market this morning for a little while…
It was a great start to a Sunday.
Have marvelous week! Kris
My sister is out of town for a few weeks and I always help her out at her flower and coffee shop when she is gone. Generally (and unfortunately) we are guaranteed a funeral or two while she is gone.
Yesterday I got up early to go create a very special set of arrangements. This family requested angel wings in two of their arrangements… I hope it is ok that I show you the finished arrangements, the wings look better in real life and I thought it was such a beautiful touch for this family.
The first arrangement hangs on an easel… Here is my before photo of the base greened and ready for flowers.
Here is the completed arrangement.
This arrangement includes some of my favorite flowers, hydrangea, lizzy anthus, ranunculus, ginesta, thistle, daisy mums and variegated pitt.
The angel wings don’t photograph well, but here is a side view.
The next arrangement is quite a bit larger and includes tulips, roses, babies breath and alstrameria, no hydrangea though. The wings look better in real life, you can see the crystals that look like sparkling dew glistening.
There is something about creating flowers that will help comfort a family in their saddest moments ever. Bittersweet, yet touching. I am thankful to be a part of the moment and offer my deepest sympathies to a family who has a painful journey ahead of them.
Thanks for allowing me to share… There is beauty in celebrating our loved ones… Better yet, celebrate each moment you have with them and make it your best day ever! 🙂 Kris
