April Showers Bring May Flowers

Sophie looks back at the many unusual and beautiful flowers she has created.

Do you know that old joke?  “If April showers bring May flowers, what do May flowers bring?”

Well, in honor of the end of our 7-year drought in California, I thought I’d recap some of the many fun and wonderful flowers we’ve made for both our website and YouTube channel.  As my sister Freda proved on her wedding day flowers can be made from almost anything:

Add a touch of whimsy to your garden with these stocking faced flowers.  They are perfect for those light hearted affairs where you want to add a bit of personality and humor.

If you like sewing, then try these sweet little felt flowers.

Soft and fluffy, these yarn flowers make great embellishments for clothing or pretty little accents on the table.


Button flowers - So simple, so pretty, and so fun to give as a gift.  Great for little ones working on their hand eye co-ordination.   


Whether it’s tissue, construction or scrapbook, paper is a main staple in the flower world!
