Oh I wish I was punk rocker with flowers in my hair!

Do you remember that song by Sandi Thom, well after I've shown you a couple of cards using some pretty organza flowers from Meiflower, I will show you a very old photograph of me looking as far from a punk rocker as you can get, but definitely with flowers in my hair!



and taking inspiration from this post HERE I made a Christmas wreath, which as well as the organza flowers also uses some gorgeous Meiflower satin ribbon roses.


I think the flowers are only available at the Craft shows as I can't find them in the online store. As well as the flowers I also used stick on gems and pearls, organza and satin ribbons, pearl hearts and diamante ribbon buckles on these creations

Okay, now onto that photo I promised you,
this was taken at my cousin Lynn's wedding, on 23rd August 1969, we wore lilac satin dresses and had purple velvet flowers with a diamante centre pinned randomly all over our beehives.

the chief bridesmaid and girl peeping out from behind the cake are relatives of the groom, I am the one on the left and next to me is my little sister Denise.
The organza flowers from Meiflower reminded me a little of these flowers and would be perfect for adding to hairpins or hairbands.

Thanks for stopping by,
hugs,
Colette xx
