I was given some ...not quite beautiful but what I would perhaps call darling tchotchkes by my dear friend Page, with instructions to rehome them. As it happens I have other friends for whom the passion of “getting rid of stuff” is not quite so strong which has the extra, added attraction of providing me excuses to do giftwrapping.
map paper, ribbon, bows, silk (& plastic flowers. May 2016
Tbh, I wasn't thrilled with this effort, no matter how hard I tried (and hot glue I used) but someone else was specially drawn to this one, despite the larger and more dramatic pile of coral & turquoise ones. Which just goes to show that just because I think it's
an abject failure not one of my best efforts doesn't mean others won't be pleased.
As for me, I have been wanting to rehome these dark blue flowers forever, and was glad to match them up with someone who adores this colour.
Page could win prizes for this. Seriously.
The little white baby's breath...
Though like as not, they'll come back. A lot of my giftwrapping supplies do. So my efforts to declutter are not as uniformly successful as Page's.
