      Thanks, Anne!

  2. Lora, I love your repurposed trees and that vignette with the shadowbox in the background is perfection! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm–pinned!

      Thanks, Cecilia! Yes, my “Always a good time for junk” art is one of my favorites!

  3. Hi Lora,
    Thank you for sharing such a wonderful way to use flower frogs. I am a collector too but wouldn’t have thought to create this beautiful display. I looked around at some of your other seasonal posts such as the spool wreath and vintage sleds and I wondered if you were my long-lost sister. 🙂 Thanks again for sharing!

      Glad to have found a creative, kindred spirit, Janie! Enjoy poking around, and good luck with your flower frog tree!

  4. You have a collection of flower frogs too! Gosh, I’d love to have a tour of your garage. The flower frog Christmas trees are amazing and decorating them with vintage shiny brites and corsages couldn’t be more perfect! I wore some of those corsages back in the ’70’s. Lora, your vignette is gorgeous and your photography equally stunning. Pinned 🙂

      Thanks for your sweet compliments, Marie!Photography is definitely one of those skills that constantly challenges me! As you know it’s one thing to come up with a creative idea, it’s another to actually get good pictures of it! And yes, my collections are kind of never-ending and always increasing now that I’m not selling anymore! Storage is always a challenge in my old house:(

  5. What a beautiful display you created! I love your flower frog trees and your aunt’s corsages look perfect on it.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      It’s quite the eclectic display, Paula, but kinda fun! I thought those corsages were so gaudy when I first got them, but I like them now!

    Yes i am playing and just like you i just had to move and redo a few things i was tired of. If you don’t like what you have you certainly wouldn’t want to add to the mess, lol! Now you have given me more to do but i don’t mind, i can say i am so very glad to have found you, you are so helpful to this old brain of mine, thanks.
