Finding inspiration among the flowers

Hi Bloggerettes!  Do you ever wonder where your inspiration suddenly comes from to create something beautiful? The other day I was looking at these and became inspired.

I was inspired to make this....

More inspiration....

Seeing as we are in the middle of winter down here in Australia at the moment, I am not getting a lot of inspiration at the moment. Thats why I love visiting blogs like yours!!

Hi Sissie :) Roses on gloves....I like that! We must look frilly and feminine while we work in our gardens, right :) Love your inspirations!

Have a fabulous day my friend!

Warmest hugs, Brenda

Just gorgeous, the satin roses are dreamy and pink rosettes on garden gloves! just the cutest!!!

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

How pretty everything is! Love the burlap and rosettes. Sissie, you inspire so many of us with your creations. Now if only I had a sewing machine!!


One Cheap B*tch said...

So beautiful! You are so talented Sissie!


awal.ny said...

Oh how pretty, you do such creative things. What a way to pretty up a glove, almost too pretty to use. I most likely would have the rose all dirtied up in a few minutes with my gardening.

Ok, I have to ask what is your print for inspiration. Does it have a name, I have been looking high and low for a picture or print to hang in my living room. Do you know who the artist is?

Lori said... comment disappeared...i was saying: your gardening gloves are the prettiest i have ever seen...the resemblance to the bloom that inspired them is spot on...bravo!!!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

How beautiful, Sissie! You certainly were inspired! Sometimes I see something or even read about something and picture it in my mind. Lately though I've been on "pause"!

Diann @ The Thrifty Groove said...

Oh, both are so sweet!

Claudia said...

Not only do you need inspiration, you need fabulous talent such as yours! Beautiful!


Blondie's Journal said...

Someday someone will see one of your creations and do a painting! I adore the pillow and I would NEVER use those gloves. Oh, maybe on a night out on the town!! ;-D


Ginger said...

Your rose creations are beautiful. I especially like the green gloves with the pink roses. Soooo cute. Have a great day.


Deb said...

That is so pretty. I LOVE the combination of the rough and satiny textures. I also like the tone on tone whites. Gorgeous!

Hi Sissie! Love your post. Inspiration can happen at any time and be born out of pretty much anything. When I run out of inspiration, I always remember one of my fave phrases:
"You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club" ~Jack London

I visit my garage and make it happen!!!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Sissie your creations are always so dreamy. The roses on burlap and the flowers on the gardening gloves! Makes me feel good to look at your blog!!

June said...

Oh I'm definitely inspired now Sissie. Just when I think you have done the best you could possibly do, you show me more.

Paula said...

Hi Sissie,
Oh my gosh--your work is unbelievable!!! And what a beautiful blog--I feel like I'm in Wonderland! I just created my blog last night--in the nick of time--for the Bloggerette Sorority...It's on Karen's list under
Whimsical Musings.
Sending hugs,
Cindy (Adkins)

Hi Sissie,
Beautiful flowers! I love the one on the gardening glove. My inspiration comes from so many places and all of the wonderful blogs give me a lot of inspiration.
I thought of you today when I hit a garage sale. I found a vintage Samsonite pink suitcase and immediately thought "Now Sissie would love this". And yes I did buy it...guess I might need to join Pink Saturday!
