April here on the East Coast ...

That's okay ...
May's bounty of flowers are well worth the wait ... and we want to celebrate the beauty of Spring by having our very first blog give-away!

The lucky winner will receive a pretty "Gypsy Fish" tee-shirt, the tee has short sleeves perfect for all the upcoming warm weather ...
and a beautiful floral rosette in aqua,
handcrafted from vintage materials including satin,
rhinestones, velvet, lace, and luscious antique millinery.
The perfect embellishment to dress up your favorite tee, bag, or jean jacket!

To enter to win ... we would love to hear from you!
Please tell us what your favorite flower is in the comments section below
{also, let us know what size tee you are ... s,m,l,xl}

    I'm so glad to have found your site on Etsy and your blog--they are beautiful and inspiring!

    I read a quote a few days ago (don't remember what sage said it) but it went something like "If you have books and flowers you have everything you need". That is so true!

    Right now I have fresh gardenias in every room of my home and it smells heavenly--even walking outside past the plant smells wonderful.

    My favorite flower is white hydrangea--actually any white flower I love.

    Your rosettes are awesome!
