They're Real

Okay, here's an update to an update.  The update on my last post was that my faux flowers were made of straw.  However, one of my Facebook friends left a comment telling me that straw flowers aren't made, they are actual flowers.  Of course, I looked them up immediately.  My faux flowers are real dried straw flowers.  Gardening and such is not my forte.

I had to take one of them apart.

The petals fell as I pried the center open.  Here's what threw me.

All I focused on when I picked them up at the estate sale, was the wire glued to the backside.

So, my faux are real, with a little addition.  Okay, let's put this little mystery to bed.  Enough flowers for now.  Redesign next.  See ya soon.


  1. Hi Rosemary,

    Back in the 80's I made wreaths with those flowers.


  2. Well now that I'm reading this post I have seen straw flowers before but only in yellow. Have a great weekend!

  3. Beautiful flowers it's a shame it fell apart but now what a challenge for you to come up with something with those petal pieces.

  4. These are so cool! I can't believe they're real? They're in excellent condition. Great find Rosemary!

  5. LOL - I so remember using those for projects years ago -- the white is really pretty!
