Inspired by Nature

Puur Anders from decor8 blog

I am not sure if it is because of the long winter we have or global warming or maybe it is becoming a trend but I have been noticing so many forms of artificial flowers.  I have seen them in many forms of media; mostly a paper or fabric version.  They are so simple and beautiful but I have a feeling a little bit difficult to make.
On Decor8 this past week Puur Anders was featured.  Based in the Netherlands and also sells on Etsy she sometimes prints pictures on to fabrics or buys vintage photos.

Another version of paper flowers is being seen in a book by wife and husband team Thuss and Farrell.  The book is called Paper to Petal.  The cover is absolutely beautiful, as well as the photos inside.

Brooklyn Craft Company based in Greenpoint has been posting paper flowers this week.  Stay tuned, maybe they will be having a class on making a lovely centerpiece to welcome the spring!

Some more paper flowers that will usher in spring sooner, hopefully.  A cute little shop on etsy called Flower Thyme. Love that name!

So if you are slightly impatient for the warmer weather and picking your own flowers, you can craft some up for your table.
