Real to Silk...

I would like to thank all of you for such a warm welcome to Pink Saturday (and blogger land), I had a blast!

I've visited about half-way down the list, so far, before I had to run errands Saturday, but I WILL be visiting each and everyone of you this weekend...I cleared my day already, can't wait! What beautiful blogs and websites AND the TALENT! Many Blessings to all of my new sweet friends.

Today is going to be a hot one...already have my AC running in my workroom. Our house is tiny, cozy , but tiny, actually, it's a refurbished old 2 bdrm hunting cabin. Thanks to my dad and hubby, about 5 years ago, I now have a seperate building built all just for me! It's heated in the winter and AC in the summer...lots of room for my huge mess that I always seem to make. lol!

I love making silk arrangements, of course I would rather have the real ones, but with the right quality silks they look amazingly real. This is what I'll be working on today (sorry for the blurry pic, I'm not "camera friendly" as of yet ( :)
Vintage teapots make a PERFECT vase...

Not to mention a metal watering urn...

add the right frilly bow and thrift store find pearls!
(((hugs))) to all of you...I have a few vintage teapots that need tending too...


  1. Those are beautiful!! They look SO real. You're right, much of the time, silk flowers are just as elegant and beautiful as the real thing.

    The teapot and watering can are gorgeous too. Perfect for holding the lovely flowers.

    Finally, I'm not adept with the camera either. My photos are never very good...AND when I want to post a photo on my blog, I have to have one of my kids do it for me. I haven't quite learned that technique yet. (Mostly because we have SO MANY files on the computer, and I can never seem to locate the picture!)

    Have a lovely day,

  2. I forgot to say that since I'm not very good with the camera, the photos I post have usually been taken by my son. Bless his heart, but he is a good son to drop what he is doing to photograph teacups, pinks, and other things for me. THEN...either he or my daughter has to upload the photo to my blog.

    Ahhh...to be a technologically-challenged momma.
