Икебана/Ikebana

Well, I'm going East. 
I've always loved ikebana. I love to make them out of real flowers. We have a big garden with roses, decorative grass and stuff and I play with them all year long. I found on Flickr the most beautiful ikebanaby Zen-Images and got inspired to make quilled one. I specially liked this one and I invite you to take a look at their fabulous work. 

And here is my framed work with cherry blossoms and my husband's and mine names in Chinese. This was a Valentine's present for my husband. I love those letters!
 And this is my first framed work that I participated with at the exhibit show and went pretty well, by the way. I sold it ( to my mother's regret ) and bought a small drill to carve eggs. 
I promised to my mother and to my brother that I'd make them a similar one but in the meantime I made this bookmark for my brother. One step at the time:)

Each piece is wonderful! Congratulations on the exhibit and selling the fan too. The Chinese letters are just great and the bookmark is very handsome.
