What is it we love so much about rumpled, faded old millinery flowers? Don't you think we should start a club? A sisterhood of vintage flower lovers.
Maybe it's the soft floppiness of the cotton blossoms.
Or the silky velvet and satin petals.
The palest pink buds, perhaps?
I'm loving this pretty pile of roses on the kitchen table.
And sometimes one all by itself is simply enough.
These pink roses are in Sofia's nursery. I figured I should initiate her into the Vintage Millinery Flower Club at an early age.
Some more favorites, on my dressing table.
I wish we had such a club. What fun we could have searching for, collecting, trading, displaying and creating with these lovely old blossoms!

I will be in your club any day Andrea! Both my little girls are into all the vintage flowers and accessories and they are just 14 months and 3.5...so it is a perfect time to start little miss Sofia! Also, you should visit my blog, there is currently a giveaway going on for some Pipsqueak Couture, what girl couldn't use more clothes, right? xoxo Shannon

I'd Love to be in your Club ~ it would be Oh So Cool!! Just Imagine the creativity.
Although I don't think it would be quite necessary to hang a sign that read ~
No Boys Allowed!!

Count me in!!
My daughter will be going to New York soon and I told her the only thing I want is an old pink velvet flower from tinsel trading company. Love them.

I'd join your VMFC but vintage flowers aren't so easy to find in the UK. I have four hats in total - much cherished - and I love to wear them :o) the flowers are beautiful, frayed, soft, and in my eyes perfect.
Lucky little Sofia, with a mum full of gorgeous things dreams are made of! ;o)

Love the idea of this club! Is someone going to do it? We all like it but will someone put it together? I volunteer if no one else does. :-) And, I love the idea of a merit badge! (Squeal with delight!) How much fabulous fun would this be??
