Wanted to show you another wreath I have been working on, I beleive the flowers are vintage, I have been told so, anyone know different please say so, the flowers are a soft plastic, and was attached to a long stem about 18 in long, each flower is about 7in round and has a wire stem down the petals so they are bendable.
Have been thinking of selling my crafts on etsy, so have been trying my hand at better photos, and wondered what you all think, I sold this wreath today for $40 just by the photos! not on etsy, my dd sold it, its probley late for Christmas iteams on etsy, will let you all know if I do, please not for sales just to let you know if I take the big plundge!

I can see the photo just fine, oddie, and it's really a beautiful wreath, well balanced and full without looking overcrowded. And I really like the bow with the addition of the little tassles. Excellent workmanship.

Some wreaths are so "busy" , you can't appreciate all the elements in it. I've heard so much good about Etsy - I hope you do it make out great!

Thank you! I thougt it turned out pretty! I so hate to tell someone something is vintage then it not be,, I dont think the buyer cared one way or the other, but it matters to me, then agine only the flowers and a few bulbs are vintage, so better watch how I post something.
My dd is my seller! she also sold 3 of my cookies for santa tins for $20, shes been doing the prices also, will have to do something nice for her!
