I have put these Hydranger buds on my toes this afternoon, now it isnt the best of pics but, my big toe nails dont lie flat and my joints dont bend ( I know freaky) but I think you can still see the flowers pretty well.
Hydrangers are the big blooms that are everywhere at the mo. in varying shades of pink & blue. Now I dont like them myself .... have always called them 'old lady plants' :eek: but, when you get up close their colour is wonderful and if you cut off a whole bloom, have a rummage around, you will find some smaller flower heads.
They press beautifully holding their colour really well.
Still too big for fingers but great idea for toes.
So, go on girls ... get round yer nans, lol!!!!

Thanx for the compliments girls!
... youre not going to believe this but, I found a freshly dead and very pretty butterfly (gruesome I know). I put a bit of resin on him :eek: and tried to make him sit on a leaf by my toe but he wouldnt 'stick', lol!
The wasp must have wanted to help me out cos he flew in all by himself!!!

What a total star that wasp is! Did it really like you and not sting you, lol??? The hydrangeas are lovely and i remember them with such fondness out of my nan's garden - bless 'er!

Next Glor will be putting on threads of how to stick butterflies to your toes instead of flowers!! LOL..... they look lovely, do you always have to dry them out first?

Hi Karren,

No I didn't take her.....I phoned them and they just said keep an eye on her. She felt sorry for herself for a while and then was back to her old tricks again....chasing anything that moved :rolleyes:

HTH!!
