A Big Galvanized Bucket of Geraniums 

Flower Friday brings us an overflowing bucket of white geraniums. As the photo shoot came to a close last evening, and we packed up to leave, these made me so gleeful as I looked back while heading up the staircase to the car. Many flowers & plants get purchased for the shoot, as you are not sure how and where they will fit in. I am happy to report that we used every single bloom and pot in some shot. The geraniums proved tricky, as there were quite a few pots of them. I woke up yesterday morning and my mind raced right to an oversized galvanized bucket we had up in the shed. It would be the perfect vessel for all of them to snuggle up next to one another. They completed the shot of the dining table just perfectly. Can’t wait for you all to see it when the magazine comes out. A lovely, lovely week-end to each and everyone of you dear readers around the globe. Sending much, much love, Ted



 

 

The Geranium Bowl In Action

I could not wait to get out to the island and get our new geranium bowl on the table. Sunday supper would be surrounded by all sorts of red to pull out the color from the flowers painted on the bowl, as well as the overall base color. Pots of geranium would flank it to tie the whole thing together. 



 

 

Geranium Bowls by Artist Paula Odell

To say I am excited to be offering these at Watson Kennedy would be a  slight, actually make that big, understatement. I did a happy dance when Paula Odell and her husband so kindly drove these gems over from Eastern Washington yesterday and dropped them off at the shop. Geranium heaven! The detail of each hand painted geranium just exquisite. I sold the first one to a customer the moment we started to unpack them out of their boxes. I love when art and function meet, which these do, in spades. They will added to our website soon, but if one speaks to you sooner, please don’t hesitate to give us a ring at the Home store at 206.652.8350. 

Happy last Saturday of July all!



 

 

Livia Cetti Geraniums

Flower Friday is not about a live bloom but rather the equisite paper flowers by artist Livia Cetti.  Another round of artfully packed stems arrived the other day at the Home store, with the geraniums making my heart sing when all placed together in a duo of glass vessels. After these shots set amongst all the vintage hotel silver, they were placed around the shop as single stems to be enjoyed by all at every little turn.
