My love affair with florals germinated as a child and blossomed in my teen years during the ’60s.
Inspired by my mother who adored flowers; besides having floral prints on her gorgeous dresses and blouses, we had floral drapes in our living room and her bedroom had a bedspread of pink roses with matching curtains. She bought the same bedspread for me with matching curtains in lavender.
Influenced by the flower power of the ’60s, I began sewing bellbottoms and tops with floral designs. For my wedding, I made a daisy wreath for my hair. You might say I was a flower child.
It’s grown into an obsession with so many floral prints in my wardrobe: daisies, roses and sunflowers to name a few–petite fleurs to big bold flowers–they are becoming my trademark lately.
If you saw my previous post you’ll notice that this is part 2. I bought two tops at Simons, made with the same eco-friendly fabric: LENZING™ ECOVERO™ | SUSTAINABLE ECO-RESPONSIBLE PRODUCTION | A LOWER FOOTPRINT – forest conscious, reduction of emissions, water conscious.
On our weekend excursion to Kincardine, I was delighted to see the magnolias were still in bloom! I look forward to these blossoms every year!
A walk along the beach of Lake Huron and it’s the end of a perfect day!
Flowers always make me smile because I see the beauty of God’s creation!
