Here's a little explanation on why I love these tiny flower so very much...  

This dainty flower is one I came across in a warehouse full of vintage findings. It reminded me of a little forget-me-not bloom, delicate flowers serving as a strong symbol for love, romance and remembrance. As best said by Henry David Thoreau, "It is one of the most interesting minute flowers. It is the more beautiful for being small and unpretending; even flowers must be modest."

enjoy! xo, Kim
