We have been (or should I say, had been) having such beautiful Spring like weather here in Missouri. I checked in my back flowerbed for some blooms but did not find any, but I did find some inside! Some paper blooms! Quilling, better known as paper filigree, was popular back in the Victorian era. Unfortunately I do not have any antique pieces to show you, only new pieces.
Back in the 1990's when Victorian was all the rage I had an elderly lady from our local Historical Society make me a piece, and here it is.
I like the lily of the valley and the little butterfly.
I had it in a gold frame but needed it for Godey's Ladies print so I tucked it away unframed. And here it is again, still unframed. Sorry to say it is not my favorite piece. I hope the sweet lady who made it doesn't read this! :)
For a little staging fun I added my Austria tea set, minus the creamer. Found at a garage sale a few years ago for a song.
Just recently at a Church garage sale I bought this beauty in a shadow box for $2 I think. I totally adore this sweet bouquet with mums, baby's breath, bluebells, and tiny daisies to go with my little daisy cup.
I carried out the blue theme of the bouquet with a lacy handkerchief, tatting, and hand towel all on a silver tray (that is reflecting the light from the chandy up above!).
I have these little ornaments too, an angel and butterfly and then the miniature daffodils in a pot, all made of paper.
And just last week I found this Christmas glass ball at an antiques store on clearance for 25 cents! And I got the pink cut glass salt cellars at an auction this past Saturday. I thought they were so pretty, I have lots of salt cellars but not pink ones! Although they kind of look peach in the photo. :)
Well that is it for my quilling pieces. Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful week. As Spring draws nearer and nearer we'll have the real blooms then.
