Flower Power

Flowers seem to brighten up any room & I love them, but I don't love the up keep.  I tried last year to keep fresh flowers in our apartment, but in both of our busy lives we would forget & leave a moldy stack of flowers in a vase for 3 weeks.  Gross! I don't like the idea of fake flowers because for the most part they look fake.  As you know I made yarn dandelions & put them in a small bud vase:

I was looking for something more to ad to them and I found these flowers from tissue paper over on a blog called inchmark (what a cute name!).  These flowers were made as birthday invitations.  How absolutely adorable is that!?!?  

I am going to make some to add to that bud vase.  I am hoping I can use more sticks as the stems instead of pipe cleaners and tape because I love the look of the sticks. I don't know how that will work for the floral tape at the base of the flower. But we shall see. 

I can not wait to move back into my apartment! My sister & I are going thrifting nearly everyday when I come home! Lord knows we don't need anything new but that is our favorite past time together.  Perhaps I can find some more unnecessary stuff for our places next year.

I have too many obsessions right now.  What are you obsessed with?
