Hi there!

I’m Donatella and I blog over at inspiration&realisation, my blogging outlet for creativity, exploring fashion (mostly refashion) and having fun with glue, needles, pliers and paint in general!

I’m so happy to have the chance to be Vanessa’s guest blogger today: last week I asked her permission to use her photographs for a project I had in mind… this is what I came out with.
In my blog  I mentioned already that I have issues with living plants, flowers, …oh well, green stuff in general.
But I do like flowers, a lot.
Also, when I get fresh cut flowers, I do get upset when they die.
I came up with a solution that gives me some color and none of the upsetting
(also none of the scent, but there is a downside almost everywhere)…
I know you must be familiar with “floral Friday” ;)
all the printouts from nifty thrifty things
Well, Vanessa can take some pretty pictures, and she and her mom do have the ultimate green thumb (envy, envy, envy)

–> What I did:

* stole downloaded all the floral friday pictures
* cut them in pieces (my rotary cutter was getting dull, so I mis-used it)
* cut pieces of wire hangers in different lengths
* coiled one end with pliers
* filled the bottom of a can with clay
* placed the pictures into the coiled part
* sticked the metal stems into the clay in the can

… immediate result.
I would like better flowers that are alive, but I might have to live with this B plan
Thank you Vanessa, for letting me use and enjoy your flowers!
