WOW – WONDERFUL projects to introduce these GORGEOUS flowers!
I am in awe, they look SO REAL!
Carnations hold a special place in my heart … when I first moved away from home to study at University, a special treat I got myself each week from the local market was a bunch of carnations, sometimes ‘spray’, sometimes ‘sim’, either way they were beautiful and reminded me of my Mum’s and Grandma’s gardens – THANK YOU for the INSPIRATION and MEMORIES 🙂
