Bumbershoot Supplies update: lots of flowers

So, what will I do with the time liberated from caring for our foster kittens? 2 blog posts in one day! This one is an update on some new supplies that have arrived for Bumbershoot Supplies, and I'm pretty excited about them.

First are the vintage 1940's to 1950's glass Japanese flower cabochons. These are such a lovely piece of history just to have and hold, and also of course for use in your mixed media, paper and jewelry arts. All of them are simply gorgeous, with lovely detail and beautiful colors.

The painted ones you see above were originally hand painted (just stop and imagine that for a moment...), but over time have lost varying amounts of their color, for an authentic shabby chic feel. Below are some really unique glass wreaths, and wonderfully, these came with their original tags.

We've also received some new hand painted Japanese plastic flower cabochons, also 1940s-1950's vintage. The ones I'm showing below are vibrant hot pink.

I wasn't sure there was any such color in nature, but then I saw this wild rose on the beach at Carkeek Park in Seattle...

There are many more flowers available at Bumbershoot Supplies - head on over and check it out!
