Floral Friday



 On a rainy afternoon a month or two back, my sister and I sat down with a cup of tea, a bucket of beautiful fresh flowers and various other bits and bobs. Just for fun, together we crafted a beautiful floral garland. It was a prototype, something we'd wanted to try for ages and I was so happy with the results.

It was heaps of fun and fairly easy, and I really don't have the best excuse as to I why I haven't gotten a tutorial up here for one! (I promise I will one day!)


....................................................

I'm joining Trishie and a group of other lovely bloggers for Floral Friday. This month's theme was Flowers as Art, and although I'm really not sure that a homemade floral garland counts as "art", I couldn't help but join in!

"Floral Friday is a monthly photography project with different themes each month. This series is about fun and taking time out to smell the flowers. To play along next time, please email me for next month's theme."


Happy Friday, and have a good weekend, won't you!
