How Does Your Garden Grow?

Large image

A suitably summery theme for the inspiration avenue challenge this week - "How Does Your Garden Grow".

This is my submission, a wreath blooming with paper flowers! I've covered the wreath in a white satin ribbon and pinned on lots (and lots!) of paper flowers in various colours and patterns.

It's now for sale in my shop over on Folksy.

Come and see all the other submissions, and join in our next challenge, over on the Inspiration Avenue blog - details will be posted shortly!


  1. Hi Artangel.

    Thanx for your comment. I'm glad it brought back good memories.

    So, from Manchester, NJ to Manchester, England, have a great weekeknd!

  2. Angie, this is so summery and I love all the wee flowers!

    Wishing you a lovely weekend,

  3. Very cute and full of whimsy....just how I like it.


  4. Judy oh that's cool - I didn't realize you were a Manchester resident too (there's a few of us around)!

    Thank you so much LuLu - you sounded all Scottish there!

    Thanks Annette :)

    Bunny I'm happy you like it - thank you too!

  5. LOVE this one, new for you but still completely in YOUR style- gorgeous!

  6. This is so pretty! My first thought was how lovely this would look at a spring wedding. It's just beautiful!

  7. Stephanie thanks - you're very kind!

    Cyndi thank you - I hadn't thought of weddings as an option - hmm, thanks for the idea!

  8. Angie, this wreath sings summer! How lovely this would look on an entrance door. And no weeds!

  9. I saw these in your shop and they're just darling! Love the new direction you're taking (my fav are the butterflies).

  10. "Sings summer" - Lisa you have a lovely way with words, thank you!
