More Tulip Tales

Today I will be telling more tales about my tulips!

These are some of my Art Nouveau Alphabet letters that I have sized and tweaked, hand colored and placed in recycled bottlecaps, backed with very sturdy magnets:

I sell these in my etsy shop:
I like the little Dutch girls in the letter "I"!

(Yeah, I know. I need to get better pictures of my "L".)

Here are some paper dolls with tulips:

These are from a 10 Dolls, 10 Nations vintage paper doll set.

Yes, it's true. I have ONE tulip blooming now. It is very pretty, with a pink color.
I would like more tulips now!
I have many many buds, but no flowers yet.
I hope they survive the freeze and rain and even perhaps snow that we will probably get this month.

They have some really great ones!

I love his colors and brush strokes!

NikkiCrossApplesauce makes these wonderful origami tulips,
and sells them in her etsy shop.

This is a kirigami cutting that I have done. Then I went back and filled in the 'holes' with leftover scraps of origami paper, to bring the design out.
It is one of my favorites!

I'd like to finish today with a photo that has many different, great ideas on how to display cut flowers. I hope you see something you will want to try!

Enjoy the rest of your day!
