Since I can't even paint my thumb green....

Paper flowers really are my only option.

When I was in China, I saw loads of beautiful paper flowers in vases everywhere...
I was dying over each and every "petal"...
Unfortunately... paper + 1 packed suitcase = flaaaaaaaaaaat flower.

That said... I was putzing around on etsy the other day and came across some truly gorgeous and insanely affordable flowers!!! Check 'em out... and give these shops a little love!

Right now I'm loving oversized flowers pinned on picture frames and clothes (thank you EmersonMade)...
How lovely would these orange peonies be on a spring shift dress????
Shop: DragonflyExpressions
 And this?!?!?! Agh... so lovely on a box... but what about around the waist of a bridesmaid???
Shop: 3GirlsandaGoat
 And... just in time for your mom... you'll thank me later!
Shop: Bouquets by Selena

Are you feeling spring like I am??? It's been sunny and blustery here in Chicago... Spring has arrived... and I just might be ordering some paper flowers to celebrate!

Luff forevs... Hannah.

PS. I didn't bring back paper flowers from China... but I did bring back something just as fabulous! Enter to win it HERE!!!
