I love flowers, but due to allergies I can only play with fake ones. I made both of these arrangements. I have had the first one since about 1998. From time to time I'll buy a new flower and pull out one that is played out. I've also changed vases to give it a different look and I spray it with a scent to keep it fresh. The only time that the arrangement is not on my dining room table is during the Christmas season.
The second arrangement is doll size. Can you tell from the photo? I am a fan of a blog called Fashion Doll's at Van's Doll Treasures. The creator, Vanessa, blogs a storyline for dolls. They have their own homes, cars, restaurants, shops, schools, churches all in a place called Morristown. I am not sure how I found Vanessa’s blog, because I am not a doll person. However, I fell in love with Morristown and the people.
In addition to the video scenes and story lines, Vanessa makes beautiful furniture and authentic looking miniature food. I have had this little blue & white vase sitting in a curio cabinet with no flowers in it. I was looking at it one day and thought it would be a great fit for Morristown. By the time I made the teeny arrangement (from flowers in the big arrangement), I really wanted to keep it for myself. But I knew it was well suited for Morristown and not on a shelf in my adult size office.
Go check out this post on Vanessa’s blog, so you can appreciate what the arrangement looks like next to a doll. Take a look around while you are there. You will be amazed, even if you aren't a doll person.
