Another year has ended, or nearly so. It’s December 15th, 2018 and the holiday season is in full swing. Thanksgiving is behind us, and that 15 pound turkey I roasted is finally gone! The purchases for Christmas are done, and just a couple items remain to be made for those who prefer homemade gifts. Yes, I still make things!
The item that is still in pieces in my workroom is a large tropical floral arrangement and the large, heavy ceramic container it will be seated in. The flowers are handmade tropical white orchids with delicate hand-painted flowers and tissue paper details that are nearly impossible to distinguish from their real counterparts. Some fresh green moss (sterilized & preserved) will finish this arrangement with the ground cover and details for real twig branches.
