Flowers Everywhere

I will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one.
            ~Edna St. Vincent Millay, "Afternoon on a Hill"

Remember this?

 

Which was part of this?

 

Well, all that became this . . .

a field of Sunflowers for my niece's bridal shower.

 

Her bridal shower in Indiana next week, and I don't get to go, which, of course, breaks my heart. So, I had to send something to let her know I'm with her in spirit.

Glitter is my Prozac, and making these made me very Happy! You can't tell from the pictures very well, but they're smothered in very fine, transparent glitter. Even Mailey Dog and Pillow Pup had glitter on them before this was all one. There are 20 spice bottles, or put another way, 400 petals all hand colored with Copic Markers.

Shew  . . . that wore Pillow Pup out.
