I have a 94 year-old grandmother who recently moved into an assisted living facility. I have made it a goal to keep her in wreaths and other door decorations to give her a little feeling of home. She was an avid crafter her whole life. At Christmas time I made a wreath from some "silk" flowers in a pink and white gold color scheme. I like to buy pre-made clusters of flowers and take them apart to use the pieces individually. I think I get the most variety for my money and I get berries, small flowers, greens, and nuts that I can't get otherwise. I made the wreath and loved it but because she was going to her Christmas gathering I made her a corsage from the left overs. It had such a vintage 1940's feel I loved it. I had not seen anything like it until I stumbled on your blog and Etsy shop. It would have fit right in with what you make. I love your work and just wanted to share that story. I didn't really think anybody was making corsages anymore so I 'm thrilled that you are….and you are prolific in your products. Good Lord woman, do you just sit and craft alllllll day every day?
Thank you for sharing your sweet story, IRJB. And thanks for your kind words. xo Laurie
