Spring Flower Photo: Mom's Birthday Daffodil

White Daffodil Photo

Getting déjà vu? You may recall from 2014 when my mom's birthday fell on Wordless Wednesday and I photographed the white daffodils in her yard. This year I colorized the stems so it'd better match her decor and ordered my first flower pillow from Fine Art America as a birthday gift!

April Birthday Gift Daffodil Pillow

I love that Fine Art America offers the option to buy their throw pillows with or without an insert. I've had a 16" x 16" pillow insert that I bought ten years ago with the intention of making my own fabric cover, but never took the time to learn how to sew. Thus I saved $6 and ordered just the zippered case. I'm quite impressed with the 100% cotton fabric the photo is printed upon on both sides. It's thick enough that I would have called it canvas if I came across it in a store. Of course, I'm no interior designer. But I am excited to design more pillows featuring my flower photography and drawings.

How To Plant Your Own Post for Flower Friday:
The only rule to play is that you can only add one link per week! The post doesn't even have to mention flowers, but only ones that do will be eligible for being picked as a feature next week. I will be sharing my flower image on other blog hops, namely Wordless Wednesday, and welcome all family-friendly links from fellow bloggers. Crafters can even link up an Etsy listing or other shop product! But if you want to promote a prize, please add it to my Giveaway Chest Linky instead to entice more treasure hunters.

Please follow my blog through any of the social media icons in the upper right sidebar to receive a reminder to return next week. Adding my button or a text link to your own blog and sharing to your followers is also a fairy appreciated way to help my hop grow.
