Connecticut Garden Show in Hartford

Michele, my niece and I went to the Garden Show in Connecticut today
Here are some things that Michele and I found inspiring.
These are large floral metal sculptures by Karen Rossi.


The center of this flower says “Je taime” which means I love you in French.

See how huge they are?


I kept thinking to myself, ‘how can I make something like this?’. This almost looks like the blades on an old fan, doesn’t it? I think I should look for old fans at tag sales to see if I can make them into huge flowers like this...

A HUGE daisy..

I ended up buying some succulent plants.  I’m getting very obsessed interested in succulent plants lately AND they are very IN. You see them everywhere. I have a nice little quickly growing collection  now.
Have a great Sunday.

WELCOME! I’m so happy that you came by to visit. I'm Linda. My sister, Carol, and I have a super creative family (my nephew even makes cabin furniture) and I try to log it all right here on Two Succulent Sisters/Crafts a la Mode.

I’m so looking forward to having you join me on my quest to learn new things and would love to have you join our community by subscribing via email or RSS feed.
