Pressed Flowers and Postage Stamps

One of the Zibbet shops we’re promoting this week is Flowersbyljp. Laurie is the designer of the unique pieces you’ll see in this shop. Pressed flower jewelry caught my eye first while browsing Flowersbyljp.

As a gardener and nature lover, I’ve been known to pick a flower and throw it in a book to press it, wanting to preserve it. I’ve also been known to forget about these flowers and have a very happy surprise when I come across one, that I’d forgotten! I love that Laurie takes pressed flowers and preserves them in jewelry. These are unique and completely one of a kind pieces and great for garden and outdoor enthusiasts.

The second thing that caught my eye, in Laurie’s Shop, are the Vintage Postage Stamp Magnets. The stamps sent me down memory lane, reminiscing about my grandfather. He was a stamp collector and I use to sit with him for hours helping him catalog his stamps. He collected mint stamps and postally used stamps. It was the postally used stamps that I loved. It was so cool seeing the postmarks of where those stamps came from and my grandfather had stamps postmarked from around the world. There’s something romantic about postmarked stamps. Laurie has a collection of vintage stamps that she has preserved by decoupaging them and making them into magnets. Another great idea and would make awesome gifts for a stamp collector!

Along with the pressed flower jewelry and vintage stamp magnets, Laurie has a handcrafted collection of beaded jewelry, beaded bobby hair pins, eyeglass holders, and ID lanyards. I hope you’ll take a minute to visit Flowersbyljp!
