VDay flowers and vase for my wife. The pictures aren’t the greatest…but she’ll be home soon so I have to hurry! The vase is from banksia pod. The flowers are spalted tamarind, bloodwood, black palm, and osage orange. The original plan was to have much larger lifelike flowers. But, the vase came out much smaller than planned because I had to turn the pod down so far to get too the good stuff. This was the first time turning one. I think she’ll like them though.
