bara spring collection: biologici

la rosette sold ++++ la primavera

la giallina sold ++++ la princesse sold
(click for larger images!)

These are four of fifteen bird-and-plant corsages, part of the spring collection. They're made of vintage & new millinery items, ribbons from a New York trip a few years ago, and other tiny things I've found and loved (spun-cotton mushrooms, czech glass buttons, tiny paper flowers)

Tomorrow evening this bunch will head over to the shops, but if you'd like one before then, leave a note in the comments & I'll save one out for you. They're USD 22, including priority shipping. International orders, please contact me. They'll arrive in their own special springtime nests, with a few little surprises tucked inside.


Non-sequitor: I am in love with any and all versions of the song "There is a Rose in Spanish Harlem" right now: Aretha Franklin's, the Drifters', Ben E. King's. Know of any others?

AND what a surprise it was to see how quickly you-all snapped those birdies up! I'm considering putting a couple more up tomorrow, so if you're looking for a sweet bird corsage, check back then. And thank you!

These are beautiful!!!! I'll check your shop tomorrow. I know if you made one with my favorite red mushrooms I'm going to die, and my husband will kill me if I keep splurging like I have been all month. But, I may give in to the temptation.
