Textile Bluebells and Wood Anemones in a Vintage Reel
There is so much folklore that surrounds these lovely woodland flowers.
It is said if you wear a garland of bluebells you will be compelled to tell the truth and bluebell woods are enchanted, fairies use them to lure and trap people in their nether world. Bluebells are said to represent constancy, humility and gratitude.
The wood anemone is also known as windflower. The flowers are thought to be fairy hideaways due to its habit of the flowers folding up for the night and keeping a fairy safe inside.
The name windflower comes from the belief that it will only open in the windy month of March.
This item has been made by myself to my own design in my home studio using stiffened fabric, paint, aged wire and thread. the cotton reel is not new and has marks due to wear and tear.
The measurements are 11cms high and the base 3cms. Due to the bend in the bluebells a space of roughly 13cms will be required.
Please note this item is not suitable for children.
