Best in show

Many awards are given to people and animals who achieve the best in competitions.
There are some people who should be given an award for giving the best of themselves every day.
 
I was inspired to create a trophy for a dear friend of mine to remind her of the beautiful person she is for all that she does for many people. 
 
 
I used a small spool covered in paper and velvet ribbon as a stand.
 
 
 

 
It was a blast to pick out the perfect millinery blooms for this project.
Would any of you love to receive a bouquet of vintage millinery?
I would - I am weird like that, lol.
 
 
Cheers to you and all of the little things you do everyday that reflect the best of your heart. 
 
 
Thank you for visiting!
