making silk banners, beautiful david austen roses

 hope you are all doing good and having a great week!  Mine has been a bit traumatic with my mum going to hospital, but looks like things are improving there.. 

Have been trying to get time to make some more pretty banners.  All in silk...   


I was searching online for some pretty german souvenir cups and they inspired these 'forget me not' banners.  I cant wait for my cups to get here!  they are so pretty!

The David Austen roses were on special this week at the flower market!  They smell so sweet!

Lots of bdays in the family this week too, have been doing lots of pressie shopping!

this one I dip-dyed in petal pink - it reminds me so much of the little german cups, love... this would be sweet in a little girls room i thought..

some more china to add to my collection; found this pretty powder blue set in a chemist near the hospital my mum was staying at.  They have so many wonderful gifts there!

                                               A fleur de lis banner...  Need to finish these ones off!

                                                Have a truly fantastic week and weekend everyone!!
