Playing & Lucious Flowers

I've been playing at the pc today and sending my sister backgrounds for a slide show she is making for our parents 60th anniversary. It's going to be beautiful, we decided to place a small packet of tissues at each place setting. :)

Please click on this mosaic to see a larger detail.

Flowers of just about any kind are beautiful.
I especially like pink roses and not just live ones!
Through the years I've collected plates, teacups, bone dishes,
butter pats and anything with  roses. And I recently purchased more
chiffon for the singed lucious roses. You can find how-to on you tube and I have a tutorial HERE. How-to's are all over the web

The clutch I made for the giveaway.
I used the singed flowers on the flap closure of the clutch.

Tiny Vintage demitasse Prussia teacup and saucer.
I was lucky enough to snag this for less than $20!

Soft pink roses from our garden, picked fresh yesterday.
Free roses, can't get any thriftier than that! The little pitcher is from

Roses on a tarnished silver tray.

These sweet little rhinestone buttons I recieved in the mail from China.
You can find them at Peace Pea Store on Ebay.
Shipping is usually free on their rhinestone buttons.
These were $6.50 for 20 buttons!

The Shelley teacup was a great find, it had no saucer but who cares!
It is now converted into a sweet little pin cushion.
