Lovely spring and summer flowers garland made from a discarded 1980s facsimile copy of the gorgeous 1906 book The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady written by Edith Holden.
This floral bunting features the flowers that she saw and painted as they appeared in the Warwickshire countryside in the spring and summer. A fabulous eco friendly present for a lover of flowers or the countryside in general, and a very pretty garland for a wedding, anniversary party or tea party.
Alternatively it would be a lovely enhancement to a bookshelf, bedroom wall or living room!
- There are 9 different little flags strung on about 6 feet (180 cm) of eco-friendly beige and cream cotton bakers twine
- Each flag measures 3" wide by 3 1/2" deep to the points (7.5cm by 9 cm)
- If the flags were placed end to end the garland would measure 2' 3" (69 cm) but the flags slide easily up and down the twine so you can space them out as you like and/or change the order on the twine.
There are two different spring and summer flowers garlands in the photos. This listing is for ONE - the flags on your garland may have different illustrations from those in the photos but will feature 9 gorgeous different illustrations of spring and summer flowers from the book..
The spring and summer flowers bunting is best viewed from one side. The reverse has some illustrations of flora and fauna and also some text - this in itself is a delight as it is written in Edith Holden's own handwriting. .You can easily change the order of the flags and if you like the images on the reverse, you can swap them around!
The paper is of good quality and the garland can be taken down/stored and reused with confidence. However, its not really suitable for use outdoors as it might get damaged if it got wet.
Nearly all my paper bunting/garlands have been repurposed/upcycled from pre used and discarded books, postcards, maps, card games and other things that have gorgeous illustrations.
As this is a handmade item upcycled from an old book, it may show some signs of age but this just adds to the unique charm.
Materials Used :
- Preloved copy of The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady
- Two tone cotton bakers twine
