Flowersmith’s recent commissions for Zero C show home

I was recently asked to make an array of dried flower arrangements to dress a new show home, it was a very nice job for a very nice company, Zero C, and the houses look  quite different to the usual new developments, a combination of traditional and contemporary, very much my style!  They even took some Venus vases and decoupaged stamp boxes which sit very well in the room settings.  My dear friend Ann Dickson, a local artist has lent them some of her paintings which work a treat too.

Here’s their  promo video, see if you can spot my contributions!

Happy New Year

Hello lovely people

Just want to wish you all a Happy New Year, who knows what 2021 will bring forth? Vaccinations aplenty hopefully!

I still have some lovely dried flowers available and Venus vases.

Looking forward to spring and all it brings in new growth and greeny-ness.

Will be planning the planting and getting treasured seeds started before too soon ready for lovely summer bouquets!

All the very best
PS A springy picture from last year to give you cheer!

Pastures New for Flora

Venus Vase No 8 was named for Flora, Roman goddess of flowers and of the season of spring – a symbol for nature and flowers. While she was otherwise a relatively minor figure in Roman mythology, being one among several fertility goddesses, her association with the spring gave her particular importance at the coming of springtime.

Hope her new owner enjoys this little beauty.

Hanging Flowers Out to Dry – Buy an Arrangement

It’s the time of year when I am frantically picking and hanging up to dry as many flowers as I can before the weather changes and the flowers get beyond their best. My house resembles a grotto of hanging beauty. I have recently added to my shop a host of various new dried goodies, from wee wooden embroidery hoops to wildly elegant huge copper rings.

British Flowers Week

This week is British Flowers Week, 15 – 21 JUNE 2020. A celebration of British grown flowers across the country.


I only use flowers grown in East Lothian which has an abundance of growers and old gardens being bought back to use.

Bouquets, regular deliveries, commissions, get in touch if you like the more natural and local touch.
