Show and Tell

I am a pin person. Today I'm showing 3 pins made with dried flowers. I got this last pin at a craft show. It also has a clip so it can be hung on a chain. I especially like this pin on light denim.
These next two pins are made by a local crafter. They are about 1 inch high, excluding the bar in the top photo. This crafter also grows all her own flowers for her crafts.
She also makes beautiful dried floral framed wall art. I had several of her pieces but after many years the flowers fade. I can't imagine working with such a delicate product. She is truly an artist.
Thanks for stopping by! For more Show and Tell posts go visit Kelli's House.
