Happy National Quilting Day !!!
If there's ever a Saturday to spend in your sewing room guilt free, today is it!
I got several comments on the water pearls I put in my silk flower arrangements so I thought I would pass along what I know.....
This is what the container looks like. It's a small bottle, around 3 inches tall, I should have put something in the picture to give you a reference.
There is a web address on the bottle, mglassvase.com.....no that's not a typo...but I didn't get any hits using that address or myglassvase.com.
After googling "water pearls" I did get some hits, usually on a wedding decorations site. Some folks created some amazing decorations using different color combinations.
I bought them at the store where I bought the silk flowers, they also had colors but someone commented that dye could be added to the water to also create some color.
I have no idea what the long term effects will be to the flower stems or the pearls. So far so good. I can't help but wonder if the pearls go bad or smell after a few weeks. If anything changes I'll be sure to keep you posted.
I do have a confession, even though the lady at the store told me to use just a teaspoonful, I easily used twice that many. Once the pearls started expanding, the ones on the bottom started shoving the ones on the top out the vase, I had pearls dropping and bouncing on my table for hours. It was like a little Cirque du Soleil show.
Now you know as much as I do about these curious pearls!!!
