Inspiration comes in flowers

Although I'm not too far from 30 (yikes!) the girly girl in me still craves for the simple pleasures such as ice cream cones, high tea with the girls, fairy floss and flowers... let's not forget flowers. Ever since my boyfriend (now hubby) made me a bouquet of flowers out of paper and then later silk for Valentines I've been hooked *btw such a creative hubby i have*

I love everything and anything to do with flowers and have lately been on a mission to create flowers out of fabric, inspired by fellow etsy members miss ruby sue and frosting couture whom create nothing but perfection. Here's a sample of their work -

Alice at the tea party - Frosting Couture

Pink Sabbath - Miss Ruby Sue

Gosh aren't these ladies amazing?! I've been dying to get my hands on some vibrant silks and other bright coloured fabric but til then here's what I've done with some left over fabric.

Ladies at Lunch - Olive Farm
