Mrs Delany floral collages

Wow !! discovering Mrs. Delany and her incredible botanical collages (this book in the gift
section of the December Martha Stewart magazine) is justification and then some for my obsessive magazine collecting/perusing/addiction. Read more about her here & here & here.


  1. Inspiration indeed, these floral collages are so beautifully crafted, what a talented woman was Mrs Delaney and such an incredible life.
    Thank you for posting this Susan, I enjoyed looking at all of the links and reading about her life.

    xoxoxo ♡

  2. This is why I try to cut back on my magazine consumption. It just leads to more magazine and book consumption. Those are really beautiful. Leave it to Martha, she knows how to find plenty of gorgeous.

  3. I was lucky enough to see an exhibition of her work. It was breathtaking.

  4. If you're inspired by Mrs. Delany's work, you should really read Molly Peacock's fabulous new book about her - The Paper Garden. The book web site is http://www.peacockpapergarden.com/
