Every woman who loves flowers...

This truly beautiful package arrived today. From the vintage shop trampoline/ethanollie on Etsy.
Doesn't it look wonderful?

Inside, there were these two flower frogs.
Every woman who loves flowers should have one for her flower arrangements!

By the way, I bought a house today! I'm so happy. And I promise you. -That garden will be a garden of flowers!
I will also make room for a cutting garden so the house can be filled with flower arrangements through summer.

Looking for...

Hi! It's me.
I'm busy searching for a house (I guess it would be more realistic to say apartment) these days.
I love the house in this photo by RandallKRoberts on Etsy.

If I just could find a lovely place for my little girl and me...
(And for my son, of course, when he visits in the holidays.)
And the cat.
And my workshop...
I think I need this photo by jmbarclay. Isn't it wonderful?

And this dress by cocoricooo would be great too.
Maybe I can sew my own... one happy day in the summer holiday?

This is the last tote I've made. I put it in my Epla shop since I discovered a lack of cow totes there.

Grow Flowers!

My daughter and I were picking flowers from the garden for flower arrangements.
It's our Constitution Day tomorrow and some decorations were needed!

I have said it before and I'll say it again. -Grow lots of flowers in your garden!
There's nothing like having a wide array of your own cutting flowers available.

Tulips, daffoldils, sweet pea, sunflowers, zinnia, dahlia, and greens like grasses and hosta are valuable cut flowers.

Have a lovely day tomorrow, everyone!

Summer t-shirts

I've dyed some tees in two new colors. Pale olive and yellow.
You can find them in my Etsy shop and my Epla shop.
It's been a totally sunny and warm day here today.
Hope you have had some sun too!

I'm leaving my garden

It's been a bit quiet on my blog lately.
Things are changing around here.

I'm leaving my partner and I am currently looking for a new place to stay and build my new life.
At the same time, of course, I'm leaving my garden, which I have loved and worked with for many years.
Of course, the garden is not the worst part of all this. I guess you can imagine (or perhaps you have experienced it yourself) how much changes there will be in most parts of my life.

This is my daughters' playhouse. We have sown sunflowers and carrots this year.
Her Dad says he's going to build her a veranda.

It's not so easy to work as much as I usually do at the moment. But I might be back with some new items in my shop tomorrow.
Monday is my Studio Day, remember?
