Flowers Everywhere!


Hi! I’m back after an unannounced blogging break.  Life got a little crazy while preparing for my Spring show and other things going on.  My show has passed and I thought today I would show you some of the arrangements I had for sale.  Some of these are still available and looking for homes….still thinking Etsy…who wants to help me figure out how to do that? Winking smile


Little Miss Maggie was jumping through wreaths to greet people at the front door!



First is Miss Bunny with  her finest adornments….



Here she is “less dressed”



Springy green ranunculus and the most real roses you have ever seen.  They even feel real.  Don’t you just love these containers?


A floor arrangement with a bit more contemporary look


And another contemporary with Japanese Magnolia blossoms…just like the ones in Pottery Barn.




This was one of the first to go…


For some reason, this was one of my personal favorites with the little Beatrix Potter container.  It is still available.  Notice the little cabbage in with the ranunculus.




In addition to flowers, we had some great snacky food.  Later in the week I will try to share a recipe or two. 



On another table in the kitchen were many more arrangements to choose from..






A happy customer shown leaving with her purchases.

My sister Barb and her friend Penny came to help me write up the sales.





I love this little Bunny arrangement in a metal pocket for a front door or wall.  I still have this one too.












A beautiful tone on tone arrangement in a most gorgeous artichoke vase.




Sweet little topiaries that can work in soooo many places.


Moss Birds flew in for a first time appearance


Lastly a twig and pussy willow piece with robin’s egg blue twill ribbon.



So now you can see what I’ve been up to the last couple of weeks.  It was a fun sale and I could tell people were excited for a Spring look to liven up their homes.

Donna, you always create beautiful arrangements, however, I do believe these are the best ever. I can't pick a favorite, but like you I do love the Beatrix Potter with the little cabbage.

You've got a wonderful talent my friend. Those arrangements are wonderful. I can imagine them leaving to new homes quickly. Thanks for dropping in and good luck on winning!

Babs said...

Donna, Thanks for your lovely comment. I meant to tell you I linked your post about your secretary to the one I did the last part of March. When you asked me about my secretary, that sent me scurrying to make it look presentable. Thanks, I needed that. LOL
