floral fascinations

I'm finding beautiful florals against black backgrounds everywhere. How inspiring are they? Martha Stewart created a wedding cake (yes, that's real!) on the bottom left inspired by a Dutch baroque still life. What a dream. The Art of Instruction is a beautiful book of vintage educational charts from the 19th and 20th centuries. Umbrella girl? Oh stop it. The beauty is killing me.

I love the richness in all these floral pieces. And I swear I thought the cake was a painting! And thanks for sharing that book - I'm definitely considering buying it on Amazon!
