i LOVE thistle...one year before my family and i took a trip to paris...my aunt wanted me to make a bouquet of lilies for my mothers birthday...well the lilies were still in bud and pretty tightly...we were leaving in 3 days...so i made her this HUGE goregeous bouquet of thistle with some thick gorgeous green iridescent ribbon because i figured well it will still be able to be enjoyed when she got home...well instead of being happy...she asked me what was that supposed to mean...being that she is prickly sometimes...i hadnt even thought about that...i just saw how beautiful it was and was always one of my favorite colors in my crayola crayon pack...my aunt was kind of pissed too...i guess there is no pleasing everyone...that was long...sorry...i love your thistle!!!
haha! shellie thank you so much for sharing! i wouldn't have thought about thistle representing a 'prickly' personality either! i'll have to keep that in mind since i too like to use it for bouquets ;)
i love your composition lili! beautiful vase
