Frayed Flowers for 2010...

Frayed flowers have been on my mind all winter, You will see more cut fabric flowers with rosettes, of vintage fabrics ( of course ) and amazing fripperies!

More designs to come for spring/summer 2010! Will be listing new items each week. This year there will be more limited numbers, due to the most amazing vintage elements Incorporated into each design. Some of my favorites I have somewhat reluctantly given up and used them, they want to be seen! Right! Not just saved for eternity!
