Lavender Heart Wreath ~*

Rarely do I make something for myself!

But when I saw this Silk Flower Lavender Wreath 
on Facebook...

 I Was Inspired to Make One of 
Real Pressed Lavender Flowers!

A little closer view ~

Butterfly Memorial ~*

This Pressed Flower Butterfly Was Made to Honor
the Memory and Life of a Sweet Little Infant Girl

The Pressed Flower Art is made up of several types of 
 Pink, White, and Red Roses, Rose Buds 
and Baby's Breath that were collected 
from the flowers at the memorial service. 

*~ A Little Closer View of the Pressed Flowers ~*

The body of the butterfly is made from a decorative grass
and the antennae are made from the pins of a Pincoushion Protea. 

*~ Heart-Shaped Beveled Glass Ornament ~*

Often, hidden down deep in a rose is one petal 
that is shaped like a heart! 
Butterflies were released at the memorial service.
There is alot of hidden symbolism in this ornament.
(The butterflies are made from left over rose petals)

Roses, Stock, Rose Buds, Hydrangea and Hypericum Berries!

Brittany, from Indiana carried this 
beautiful bouquet in her wedding!

The Florist was Lisa at Dandelions in Muncie, IN!

The flowers were shipped from Indiana to my studio in Texas.
The flowers are then taken apart and pressed until dry.

 Brittany chose to have her flowers preserved and 
arranged around her wedding invitation.

  Here is a close up of the Pressed Flower Art!
Note the little heart on the right...
Often roses have a tiny heart shaped petal down inside!
I like to find a special place for it, when I find one!

White and Purple Dendrobium Orchids ~*

These Preserved Orchids were an Anniversary Present! 
The husband gifted his wife with a beautiful bouquet,
but sent me part of it, to be preserved!

The Brass Tag in the Bottom Corner
Is a Personal Sentiment For His Wife!
