Friday Five - May Flowers

Happy May Everyone. 
Flowers being this week's topic, prooved to be difficult to choose only Five. 
The reason being 'flowers' in general are always a favorite of mine...I found so many beautiful flower 'artists,' I could have shared flowers with you all day never get anything else done.  
So - Congrats to these five artists that made the cut!
Enjoy these flowers and the ones that are bursting with beauty all around us this time of year, as you begin your weekends. xo

Tulip Glass Magnets

Over at her shop Kelly's Magnets, Kelly in beatiful Calgary Alberta creates...

Kelly's magnets caught my eye for three reasons:
1. Tulips are my favorite flowers.
2. I love pink and green together.
3. I like Kelly's style!
