Florals for an antique shop

My sister-in-law is opening a shop in a larger antique store. It's in a very quaint farmhouse building with a welcoming front porch.  We went to lunch last week and then to the shop, where we looked for places to put my jewelry.  As I started to work on some things for her, I remembered some vintage flower components and my pop rivet gun.  Here are some pieces I think will look wonderful in her space ...

So lovely, but spring i s my favourite, the colours are...well...spring like. But they are all gorgeous and I'm sure they'll look beautiful in the shop.

Those layered up flowers are in yummy colors. Just the bright we need right now while the days are getting shorter and winter gray sets in.

you have this perfect ability to create feminine pieces that aren't froofy... vintage style pieces that aren't stodgy - i think we once discussed the term 'rustic feminine' - and you do that so very very well... agreed, these are going to fly out the door! the colors are delightful!
