Paper Daffodils

I admit it, I love daffodils. I tried planting some in the garden but they just didn’t do well at all — they’d start blooming and then a 90 degree day would come along and bam! they’d melt into mush. Not a pretty sight. Plus they looked out of place in our native Texas garden.

So when I spied this kit from Paper Source I had to have it. They were easy and fun to make. And they don’t wilt. Yay, daffodil craving solved!

[Note: This photo was not planned — I finished eating breakfast and thought, wow, this would make a good 3191 style photo. Breakfast was cinnamon chip toast from a local bakery and Maya Caffé Teeccino — yum!  Fiesta bud vase in persimmon, plate is sea mist, and mug is tangerine.]
