So Brian comes home from work today with a dozen pink roses. what a surprise. He hands them to me... and they smell beautiful. then I feel them... they aren't flowers at all. They are made out of......

WOOD :yikes: how cool is that?

a lady at one of his clients MAKES these so he told her all about etsy so she could check it out and maybe sell them on there.

she only charges like $8 but she could and SHOULD charge way more than that.

they look SO real. I've seriously never seen anything quite like them. they are beautiful.

I hope she does check out etsy. I think she will do really well ecause she has such a unique and beautiful product

WOW - those are fantastic!!!!


Did he ask her how long it takes to do a bouquet like that? They are so lifelike, and the color is so precise. Like you, I think she should charge more.

Now those are the kind of flowers I like! I could never have real plants or flowers because Taz would eat them. So Bruce stopped buying them for me (even though Taz is gone now). I'm going to show him these. They are beautiful!!!

They're beautiful! I have the same, in pink also. I love them.

I am in awe! :eek: Wow! That is so cool!!!!

yeah she has all different colors. Brian didn't ask how long it takes to make one but he will next time he sees her.

yeah I can't be trusted with plants lol... I kill them. they just don't survive around me. I can keep dogs alive, kids alive... but give me something green and it's doomed lol. so these are perfect. and they still smell pretty.

IMO she should get at least $25; that's what a dozen real roses typically go for and these won't wilt!

She is cutting herself short on the price for sure. They are just beautiful. :)

Your hubby wins the prize again. :D
