Each spring for over 40 years I look forward to my magnolia tree blooming. Spring was slow at arriving this year but it's finally here and so are the flower blossoms.
I love seeing the beautiful pink and white flowers on my magnolia tree in my front yard. I even love seeing the pink and white petals scattered all over the yard when they begin to drop.
The blooming season for my magnolia tree is more than thirty minutes but the life of the flowers in bloom on the tree is short. One year the tree had bloomed and it was wonderful for a day then that night we had an unexpected freeze and by morning all of the blossoms had turned black and fell to the ground.
It was wonderful for a short time.
My title for this post actually is part of a quote from a movie.
Can you guess the movie?My friend Marcia from Glitter And A Movie on Facebook has a challenge.
I had to use my magnolia tree in some way...
I covered a blank tag with a thin sheet of silver metal for the background.
I embossed the metal.
I took photos, printed out copies, then cut out the blossoms.
I added a bit of Stickles glitter and some Diamond Glaze to the petals.
I added a few cream colored Prima flowers and a silver cord for hanging.
I used double stick mounting squares to fasten the flowers to the metal tag.
The quote is: "I would rather have thirty minutes of wonderful than a lifetime of nothing special."
