I have a small collection of vintage beaded flowers. The ones that I used to make this wreath were vintage italian. But a few years ago I attended an estate sale in New Jersey and there I picked up several lovely arrangements that were made by the lady that had lived there. In hindsight I wish that I had bought every piece in the house, but at that time I didn’t really appreciate them for their handcrafted beauty.
I love this one. It was made in a silver egg shaped container.
Aren’t these hyacinths to die for!
I think these are mums, so pretty!
Just a little bouquet on the wall of the stairway.
It’s a turtle sprouting daisies.
I liked this one, cause it’s a bit odd looking. I have a vintage book about making these flowers and this one is in it. They call it the pom pom flower.
I’m very inspired to try my hand at making some of these, kind of a lost art don’t ya think?
I have one left to show you and it is very special. I need to clean it up and take a beautiful photograph so I will do that soon. Ciao!
