my daughters have always loved creating adornments from what they find in nature.
- a wreath for the head made from woven ivy and decorated with flowers
-a simple ring made from a single nasturtium flower
-a daisy chain bracelet
yesterday morning they came in from the backyard wearing these beautiful bracelets. the materials used to create these works of art included: dried ficus berries, apple blossom ice plant, nasturtiums, and small waxy white flowers. the tree/shrub that these flowers are from is a volunteer in our yard...and i don't know what it is. i do know that our neighbor offered to have her son come cut it down years ago. i guess she doesn't like it much. it doesn't block any view other than into our yard....hmmm. we declined her offer.
how happy it makes me to have flowery/shrubby trees pop up in my yard without an invitation.
and how happy it makes me to see these statement pieces on my beautiful girls.
