And these beauties are another 'spare time' project I have going on right now. They are tissue paper flowers for my sister's wedding in September. My other two sisters and I are working together on this and it is a lot of fun.
I'm not putting the bouquets together - my green thumb, farmer girl sister is doing that part - but I will try to get some good shots of the final results when they are complete.
Oh yes, and I also wanted to add a little note about how Peter started playing "Etsy Shop" last week. He named his shop "lows" because he has "low low prices". He sat down and drew a stack of pictures and priced them all without a trace of the hand wringing and brow furrowing that I am plagued with when pricing things. (lucky boy). Then he stood on the porch shouting "pictures for sale!" He made a sale to a neighbor and one to mom of course and was over the moon. Instead of investing his money back into "Lows" however, it was promptly handed over to the ice cream truck folks in exchange for one 'sour wower'. The next morning when he came downstairs the first thing he said to me was "let's do some more business!" The fact that my son plays Etsy shop is either really amusing or really really sad and I am still trying to decide which.
