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!
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.

Venus Vases are limited edition pieces and celebrate the female form. Luna is the divine embodiment of the moon, complement to the sun.

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.
Watch this space…
Once we return to normality I will run a fun workshop on making wonderful headgear with flowers and foliage.
Keep an eye out on the website for updates!
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.
The January Delivery was a vase of budding twigs, abundance of yet to open daffodils,scented paperwhites and hyacinths, greenery including bay, rosemary and broom.
The delivery for December was a wreath made with glorious mix of local greenery, cones, berries and viburnum, worked on to on a twisted base of locally grown willow.
Finished off with a tartan ribbon … well we are in Scotland!
Here’s what the November delivery looked like, a big bundle of dried and preserved flowers and foliage. Lovely warm tones that will last for months, slowly fading but still retaining textures and structure.
Been working with growers choosing flower seeds for next year, very exciting, the monthly deliveries are going to be amazing!
