A friend of a friend retired from her full time retail based costume shop this year. She's going to continue working from home but she's scaling back and clearing things out. I was a lucky beneficiary.
One of the things I got was an oversized paste board box (totally cool on it's own), full of silk flowers that seem to have been destined for hats back in the their day.
Well, their day came again. This is the first thing I used them on. I think you are going to be seeing quite a few of these flowers in the next while. Check it out at my Etsy shop.
