Gypsy Flowers

Sorry I' ve been a bit away this past week. Had to meet a major deadline for a project I was working on and was busy busy BUSY (who isn't around this time of year, huh?)! But I have a bunch of exciting things to post and some creative ideas to throw your way! So without any further delay, I am happy to share this fantastic editorial featured in V magazine and featuring the lovely Ms. Moss. The gypsy lifestyle is all about 'wild' and to incorporate that with wildflowers would be a very cool theme. Think: gypsy wedding/ceremony? Pretty unconventional and very lovely. Makes me think of lots of pretty colors, horses, willow-y fields, a hodgepodge of pretty fabrics, hats & feathers, and of course, wild flowers. Gypsy is going to be on the forefront of my mind for inspiration & ideas this coming up year...

What do you think?

France, je t'aime

Sorry, I know that this is a bit late seeing that it's already been a whole month since we were in France. Here are some of my pictures. I really loved that getting off the train in Paris, I was able to buy a teeny bouquet of french anemones for a couple of euros for a dear friend. Flowers don't always have a to be a huge production; much like life, the simpler and more natural, the better.

I know, this doesn't have much to do with flowers or nature but I couldn't help myself! CONFETTISYSTEM is the wonderful collaboration of two artists, Julie Ho & Nicholas Andersen and their friendship, love of crafts and design. They handcraft these beautiful installations and piƱatas using tissue paper, cardboard, and silk. The result: an ephemeral space that takes you back to what it felt like to be excited for your birthday parties, or for me, it simply makes me think of magical fun. All I know is that these two artists are making the world a prettier place, space by space!

(mental note: neat concept to apply to flowers: magical fun, no)?

Treehouses, I Love You

Forgive me friends, but I cannot remember where exactly I got these images off the web. But seriously, how amazing, huh? I have a complete fascination for these giant people-nests in the trees. It seems so cozy and exceptionally at one with nature. One of these days, I'm going to build one.

Dandelion Ranch

I came upon Dandelion Ranch today through the very awesome blog Oh Joy! and was a bit blown away! They have a winsome way with their arrangements of flowers, a unique eye and a very cool philosophy:

...we allow the flowers to retain their integrity and arrange them in a way to maintain their natural movement or rather the way they might appear in the garden.

Up in the Trees

My good friend Jessica is studying in Japan right now. If I need a little inspiration or just want to be taken away for a moment, I check in to see what she is doing. She's been taking these amazing photographs that have me dreaming. Wouldn't it be nice to sit and have some of that tea while gazing at the trees?
