Silk Flowers

The objects of discussion !! These little silk embroidered flowers were in my mother's sewing box for as many years as I can remember. She told me that her dad, my Grandpa Hanle, had brought them back from Germany in 1934 and they had come out of cigarette packages. He thought she could use them on a sewing project. As it is with "us", she thought they were just toooo pretty to use on just any old thing, consequently, they remained in her sewing box ! I weaseled them out of her about 20 years ago and have laid them on black background, framed and hung in my bedroom. The smallest one measures about 1" tall. Pretty, huh ?
