Too simple.......

I know this is beyond simple, but when I saw these huge paper flowers hanging all over the open door of a cute downtown shop in Charleston, I loved the effect. They are made from the free "Skirt" paper/mag. that that you can find in larger cities (it's the variety of colors used in them that make these look so cool). I'm kicking myself for not grabbing a few mags while I was there--I really wanted to do a display with them for the show. Such a simple idea that makes a big impact.

Girl, I must've been a Southuner in a past life, your shots below fill me with familiarity. There is nothing like the relics of the old South, a history unmatched anywhere in the world. This is why I love driving to Florida instead of flying...to much to see on the ground...have some fun for me and think of me when you dip your toe in the Atlantic...put a shell to your ear...the sound you hear will be my sigh of longing...

I'm so green!!!

Have fun...s
