Pressed flowers

"Things are pretty, graceful, rich, elegant, handsome,
but until they speak to the imagination, not yet beautiful."

Pressed flowers are not as beautiful as fresh flowers ,but as we know that fresh flowers will only last for a short while,a moment in time.we can use pressed flowers for capturing that moments in time and preserve it in a picture where it will always be able to jump start a memory.I am sorry that I did not press my wedding bouquet .But I have pressed leaves from a memorable holiday,I always enjoy looking at them.

These are pictures from my small business
You don't even have to be very artistic. The flowers do it all for you!
Although all of you know how to do it,I'll explain it in next post.

A Wall Full Of Birds

I don't know when love of birds is born inside me,as long as I remember I love birds especially these cute little ones.

Press flower with drawing,I made it with help of my mother in law
I see birds every where,even on the clocks,as soon as I saw it in the store I knew I want it
water color
They are napkins,I made frames for them& they look like original pictures!
