  1. I have many silk flower and foilage arrangements in my home and love them. I have a spray that I use to keep them clean and fresh looking, but had never really thought about how I could separate them, cut them, wire them and create whole new arrangements! Thank you for the inspiration! I love fresh flowers, too, but the silk/faux flowers allow me to have year round color and beauty without worrying about them dying!

    • Donna you are right. There are advantages to both fresh and faux. It is nice to be able to mix it up when you need a change.

  2. I have some faux flowers together with some dried ones, I don´t always have real flowers, so this is a nice way to make your home look pretty. But you still have to take care of them (faux flowers with dust and spider webs aren´t really nice :-))!

  3. It’s definitely timely that I found your blog in general and this post in particular. I have an old bunch of silk flowers in an ugly wicker basket that I have been wondering if I should try to modernize. I don’t like the arrangement pparticularly but I loved the colour scheme so much I painted a canvas to complement it. Reading this has inspired me to try so thank for sharing!
