Paris Scarf

It had been a long anticipated rendezvous with my lover in Paris,

and it was after enjoying a lovely meal while strolling Rue Saint-Louise,

a charming street lined with adorable boutiques one more tempting than the next

that I discovered the shop with an amazing array of scarves.

Altering Paris fashion seems crazy,

yet I found myself adding bits of vintage lace to the raw edges

of this sweet little scarf upon my return home.

It is an all-time favorite that I wear most often and of course

it carries treasured memories as it was a gift from my lover

during our adventure in Paris together.

Prima flower ring

I began by gently soaking the white Prima flowers
in warm water.
After soaking I reshaped the flat flowers
into a cup shape,
and set them upside down on the stove top
with the heat from the pilot drying them.

Then I joined them together with glue after they dried
and layering them inside each other.

You may chose to attach them to a ring or pin
and with a touch of glue in the center add a stray pearl!

Super easy & fun!
