Vintage Flowers, Heirloom Corsage






These flowers are over 40 years old. They are from Europe and travelled to this country with my mother when she came to start her family here in America. The flowers have been packed away carefully. I took them apart and stitched in layers. I added some vintage pearls into the center cups. The flowers were mounted onto vintage bias tape in soft pink.

The look is sweet and simple. The flowers have a true vintage feeling.

This Heirloom Corsage is on it's way to Canada. I always wonder what happens after I pop something in the mail. Is it worn to a party? Does someone meet a new boyfriend while wearing it in her hair? When something is handmade, a lot of thought and touch goes into it. I remember stitching the item and thinking of how I would wear it.

Yes I wonder this too! I mean, I know some are going towards weddings, but I wish those brides would send me photos!
