Beautiful Flowers - Artisan Handmade for Spring

I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,

Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,

Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,

With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.

William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream



Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair . . . 

Susan Polis Schutz




When I was thinking of a quote to start this Beautiful Flowers - Artisan Handmade for Spring blog, I couldn't decide whether to feature the William Shakespeare quote or the one from Susan Polis Schutz  . . . so decided on both since one seems to blend perfectly with the other.  I’d pick a few violets. musk-roses and eglantine (sweet briar rose) growing on the bank, put them in my hair and then joyfully dance in the sun, welcomng the flowers and the beauty of spring.  With what a lot of people experienced this winter so far, I think almost everyone can agree with that.  Dancing in the sun with flowers in your hair! 


To celebrate the idea of cheerful flowers showing up hopefully not too far in the future, I decided to host a blog that features artisan handmade creations with flowers in the design.  You’ll find a wide variety of items:  from note cards to jewelry, from lampwork beads to photo albums, pillows, prints, pouches and polymer clay beads.  I hope you enjoy all of these these selections, many one of a kind.  And if something catches your eye, be sure to click on the photo or the link under the photo for more information.  Remember (hint, hint):  Easter and Mother’s Day are quickly approaching.  These flowers won't wilt!

So very pretty to look at!

Thank you, Catherine, for writing this blog featuring all these pretty flowery gifts and including my necklaces. These would make ideal gifts for Easter or Mother's Day. I have shared at The Singing Beader Facebook page and shared each item on Pinterest.

A Thrill of Pleasure in Springtime...

Yes indeed these beautiful creations do bring a smile to my face and makes me really look forward to warmer days and gardens in bloom. Thank you so much Catherine for this great promotion opportunity and for collecting such a lovely array of springtime flowers.

Through primrose tufts, in that green bower,
The periwinkle trailed its wreaths;
And ’tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes."Lines written in early spring by Woodsworth"

Thanks Catherine for all the promotion and help. I think the quote of Shakespeare was an added feature as I had not visited the Bard's work since high school. I do not know the poet.

I have tweeted and pinned all the items on list and happy sales.

Love this: Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair . . .
