This was my first find. I think it's handmade. Got it last month at the Allegan (MI) Antique Market. Love the vintage turquoise velvet -- reminds me of the French Provincial chairs my grandma had in her living room. They were the same yummy color !
However, trouble struck the first time I tried to wear my new treasure. My bouquet was terribly top heavy and drooped dangerously to one side, almost making my walk sideways. Gasp.
To the rescue: one of my favorite Lisa Toland pins from Sobo Style in Columbus, Ohio. Pinned it on right underneath the millinery flower and somewhat accidentally formed this nifty corsage. Got lots of compliments on it, so now I'm hot on the trail of additional flowers to pair up with other pins. Be sure to check out all the other fun projects on the Transformation Thursday link.
