Friday flowers, recycled

Last week's lilacs lasted into this week, and I loved them even more as they started to disintegrate.

lilacs, disheveled

Each tiny flower is so perfect - I just let them shed all over the table and enjoyed the beautiful mess.

We have a long weekend coming up and I'm hoping to get some sewing done. How about you?

  6. So cute! I always debate about whether to clip lilacs on bushes near the street. Is that stealing? I feel like it's a kind of gray area.

  12. Pretty! Do the flowers retain their color if dried? I'm wondering if they could be dried and used on handmade cards, etc....
