Celebration time, come on …
“To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power. Or the climbing, falling colors of a rainbow.”
A great quote from a great woman and a great mother herself…though she wasn’t so great with babies apparently, lets’ face it, her words of wisdom would have been wasted on such tiny shoulders!
To celebrate these special women I have named a few Venus Vases after some amazing mothers and will pop in free a little special dried posie tied up with satin ribbon with each purchase.
If you order one on the website email me with a message and her address and I will hand write a card and pop it in the post. Hurry though as it’s only two weeks away!
And the Mothers I have chosen are….
Josephine Baker who adopted 12 children of all nationalities
Marie Curie known as the mother of modern physics winner of Nobel prizes, one of which she shared with her daughter
Olympias mother of Alexander the Great
Emmeline Pankhurst mother of Sylvia and Christabel all movers and shakers for the suffragette movement
Michelle Obama great mother of two girls but inspirational to many others
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.
Hello Flower lovers
As you probably know virtually all my dried flowers are locally grown, gathered and dried. This year has been very busy and many, long lasting arrangements are now gracing other peoples walls to give months of pleasure. I am starting to run low on certain things so if you want one for yourself or as a gift check the website. Thanks
I have been asked by some young’uns to do some vases with only neutral coloured flowers, so adding a few new ones photographed on a plain background.
These little curvy tactile sculptures look happy sitting pretty much anywhere, made to bring a smile to your face and celebrate the wonderfulness of women …
If you’ve got a loved one who loves nature and beauty and would like a totally locally grown and arranged special something that will last for months, if not years…you may want to consider a dried flower arrangement.
Great for instantly dressing a room and bringing the outside in.
Mary Wollstonecraft rattled cages in her time … and now ours.
My Venus Vase No 38, named after Mary Wollstonecraft.
Died ten days after giving birth.
I have oodles of gorgeous dried flowers from this year’s harvest, pretty wreaths from £20, garlands and ‘one off’s’ in various vintage goodies. They make the perfect unusual presents that will give joy for months if not years! All grown, picked and dried locally. Will be adding more things regularly.
Get in touch if you want something in particular.
Christmas wreath’s next!
