#7 Celia's Vase of Flowers Faye Labanaris photo 1.jpg



Celia Thaxter picked the choicest blooms of the day to lovingly enjoy.  “Near my own seat in a sofa corner at one of the south windows, stands yet another table, covered with a snow-white linen cloth embroidered in silk, as white and lustrous as snow. On this are gathered every day, all the rarest and loveliest flowers as they blossom, that I may touch them, dwell upon them, breathe their delightful fragrance and adore them.”  Now we shall recreate this beautiful scene with roses of silk and other beautiful ribbons and fabrics for your pleasure and enjoyment.
