Have you ever seen one of these china flower pictures? No, nether have I! I found it on Saturday and thought if it's frame was painted it might look OK on our mantelpiece. I also found this small cross-stitch of yellow roses (which will grace our wall of flowers) but didn't like the dark frame. So I got to work on both frames straight away.
And here is the china flower picture. What do you think - does it look better with a white painted frame? I think it does but thought I would love it more. It may need moving around until it finds the right place. The other picture isn't quite dry yet so I haven't hung that.
So my collection of china flowers is growing.
I have found some more black bottomed ones. I am going to touch up where they have chipped with matching nail varnish. As I don't own yellow, purple, blue or green varnish I'm trying to summon up enough courage to go into the beauty department of a local store and use the tester nail varnishes on display. Can you imagine trying to explain myself if I get caught! Perhaps I should ask before I do it.
But then again, I know a young 14 year old girl who would probably give anything for yellow, purple, blue, and green nail varnish...
