Friday Flowers-Berries

Purchased last winter from one of Charleston's basket ladies...
popcorn berries.  The dried seed pods from the Chinese Tallow tree


Now a bouquet tied with silk ribbon...another non-flower flower arrangement


Imperishable yet fragile.  No vase needed...in repose upon a book

Loi: your ribbon tied annabelle inspired my berries! I'm going to do the same with my dried annabelle as well. Next time I'm in Charleston, I'm happy to pick some up for you....and ship to our shop

I used them this past winter to decorate our church windows for a family friend's wedding...tucked into magnolia and fraser fir branches. Love that these berries don't wilt

So pretty! The perfect touch. And I love the turquoise birds, too. They are gorgeous! Happy weekend! XO

You really are amazing. I am just looking at a wonderful photo from my sons trip to Africa (because I can't sleep) and I want to paint it....It is a woman holding a basket of fruit....in her mis-matched patterns. I want more mis-matched patterns and vignettes like you create.
love these type of fortune cookie quotes.
so much better than the one's in the cookies.

ha, thanks...a creative friend suggested I turn my quotes into image files so they can be pinned. Trying it out

What joy I'm sure to see his photographs

I too was up late last night...husband and kids away, isn't supposed to help me sleep. Oh well. Best wishes for a restful sleep tonight for you
