Flowers and Hearts

"A garden to walk in and 
immensity to dream in --
what more could he ask?
A few flowers at his feet
and above him the stars."
             ~Victor Hugo
                Les Miserables

   I have been working on Gillyflowers for the past week or so! I have just added six new flowers, two ribbon work hearts, and a few other pretties to the Etsy Shop! I love to make the flowers because I never know how they are going to turn out. I will begin with one idea and as I sew something else blossoms!
 My brain is full of ideas lately - I have taken to keeping them in notebooks, in my phone, file folders, pinterest boards... My lists have lists!! If only there were time for everything. I am slowly working my way through all of them. How wonderful it is to be constantly inspired! Sometimes I think it is the time of year. Spring is a time of inspiration...

I am sharing with:


  1. Oh my, so much beauty here. I love them all.


  2. Your flowers are so beautiful jennelise, I also really love the pink heart hanging over the mirror. How fantastic to be so inspired and full of ideas, creativity is such a gift and you have it in spades🎀🎀

  3. Oh my, Jennelise! Your gilly flowers are just beautiful! You are so creative and just have an eye for beauty. I saw "something" in my "R H" magazine that came in the mail yesterday.
    Did you see it, too? Any way, without spilling the beans, CONGRATULATIONS! Love it!

    1. Thankyou Patti! I can't wait to see it! I don't think it is out on the stands here yet :) You are so sweet!

  4. Jenn: Gillyflowers are coming up all over the place! Congratulations on gracing the pages of Romantic Homes (got my issue in the mail yesterday.) Nice job.

    1. Oh that's wonderful Christine! I haven't seen it yet! I can't wait :) I wasn't sure it could be true. I have loved that magazine for ages. Thankyou for your kind words! You are a sweet friend.
