Just wanted to reach out to everyone and say, "Thank you for a great Spring!".
The Milwaukee Art Museum's, "Beauty In Bloom", was a fabulous four day event filled with Fashion,
Flowers, Art and Fun!
For those of you unfamiliar with the event, the Museum pairs flower designers with works of art.
Each floral designer interprets the piece of art and makes a floral arrangement to reflect their
This year the works of art were haute couture from the Johnson' family collection.
Some great fashions and some wild interpretations!
A fashion show was held on Saturday night and several of the designers participated by creating
dresses, shoes and accessories out of floral pieces.
Here are my two favorite pieces; taken with my iphone (& yes I took artistic license as well!)
I must say, I was very happy with my booth, for several reasons. The first was the fabulous flower corset
Joan Schultz, with Flourish Florals, custom made for my mannequine. It was matched to
a vintage Scaasi, fabulous!
The second were the flower images that I created especially for the show.
These images were photsos of flowers, processed onto wood, giving each piece a unique,
one-of-a-kind vintage feel.
Naturally, the best part of the show was meeting new people!
It was a well attended event and it attracted people of all ages and backgrounds.
Hopefully I will see the same people next year and those of you who were unable to make it,
please put in on your calendar for next year!
