We've definitely made some progress packing. Last night I very carefully wrapped each of my vintage glasses and boxed them ALL. Today I decided I would take on an easier task: to collect all of the bottles and jars and vases of flowers and that I have displayed around the apartment. What I didn't realize was that I have them hidden ALL OVER. On every shelf, every table, every nook, every cranny.
See, I love flowers. Especially ones that don't die. (I think this stems from my black thumb complex and grim history with houseplants.) I have all different kinds - crepe paper, corn husk, ribbon, metal, fabric, wood..... On top of that I also like to collect anything natural that I can put in a vase and enjoy for years to come - branches, pussy willows, feathers..... The list is endless.
Well, I finished gathering all of these whatnots from around the apartment....and it turns out there was 48 of them. Seriously?! 48?! That's SO not right. I AM a crazy cat lady. This apartment is NOT that big.
I lined up a sampling and took some photos for you.
I love both of these. It's hard to tell from the picture, but the one on the left is a vintage piece made from silvery seed beads and wire....and the one on the right is silk flowers from the 20s that are meant to be worn in your hair.
