If You've Got 'Em, Use 'Em


I came across a huge stash of old millinery flowers at a flea market last summer and decided to not just tuck them away but to use them...



I had to go to a baby shower today so I used this fab crushed velvet gift bag... (from the Dollar Store!!)



And paired it with this large Carrie-like blossom.



The were destined to be together!



I love it when it doesn't cost a fortune to make a present look extra special. That's priceless. :)

That’s true, in giving presents it's not how expensive your gifts are it is always the thought that counts.

Your work is impressive!!!
