A Few Bundles of Roses

Flower Friday this week are a few bundles of grocery store roses that are doing the trick, in a pinch. We are hosting a graduation party today and wanted to spiff up the dining table. This vessel will get moved later to said table. The lilacs with all of the heat are no longer and the peonies are yet to pop. One flower you are almost always certain to count on when at the grocery store or corner bodega are roses. Hearty by nature, massed together, they make for a simple abundant arrangement that will last a good long while.



 

 

A Rose Is A Rose Is A Rose 

Had a late lunch with my friend Jackie the other day at London Plane. While waiting for our table we had the pleasure of perusing the lovely blooms they had for sale. The roses were my favorite, by far. Their singular beauty always gets me. This fluttery loveliness our Flower Friday pick of the week.



 

 

Roses as Respite

This Flower Friday brought to you from the John Derian booth at the show earlier this week. Truly, dreamy, right? Walking the aisles of the Javitz Center for a few days looking for shop goods is wonderful and challenging all at the same time. One must look at a bunch of ‘not great’ (ok, sometimes really awful) to find the gems, so when I stumbled into John’s booth to write my order, my heart skipped an extra beat when I spotted these roses in a display. A respite of floral beauty. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did/do. 



 

 

Creamy White Roses & Pumpkins 

As November begins to unfold, Flower Friday eases us in with tiny creamy white roses and pumpkins brought back in our suitcase from New York because I just could not leave them all behind.  They will be enjoyed on the dining table right on up to Thanksgiving.  A lovely start of the week-end to you all!

A Week-end Full of Hearts

20160213-055402.jpg As we would ring customers through with their purchases yesterday, I would say good-bye with a, “Have a lovely Valentine week-end!” I think Valentine’s Day is so much more than just the focus on an individual you love. I have always taken it to be a time of love and showing it to all those around you that you care for.

20160213-055923.jpg This might stem from the days when I was little and you gave everyone in your class a Valentine card. I would come home from school with a slew of cards and it always made me so happy.

20160213-060128.jpg In our world where loving one another is so often not the focus, let’s revel in this. This week-end, and really every day. This is just a great starting point. To show caring, kindness and love.

20160213-060805.jpg Sending you all the happiest Valentine’s Day wishes and tons of love. You are all my Valentine…

Day Trois in a Year of Flowers

I promise day three will conclude our flower tour of the year. It has been such a treat choosing the images for this re-cap. It makes me so appreciative of all the places I find blooms–the Market, the grocery store, our yard, floral shops, farmers markets. I am always on the hunt for what looks the freshest and most interesting. As I mentioned the other day, the joy they bring is immeasurable.

The Flower Love Continues…

The flower love continues with more, more, more of the sumptuous blooms that filled the year. Whether massed together in a big bunch or solo running down a table, they bring so much added life to our life.

The Year in Flowers

It is that time of year when we start looking back as we begin to look ahead at a new year. Flowers play such a large part in my day to day and bring me such immense happiness. I love sharing the blooms and stalks and leaves with you all. Whether it be a big bunch of tulips, a bundle of kale, a vase full of radish leaves, or a single dahlia stem–there is so much natural beauty around us each day, I just like taking a moment to take it all in. Here are a few of those moments from this year.

20151226-081217.jpg Oh my gosh, choosing is not easy, and I am still in Spring! The flower love will continue tomorrow with more blooms, and maybe even the day after that…

Happy Saturday all! If you celebrated Christmas, I hope it was all just grand. I am out the door to work the Market shop today, so if you are in the hood, stop by and say hi. Our ‘After Christmas Holiday Sale’ begins today in both shops. 50% off all holiday related goods such as–ornaments, cards, holiday candles, wrap & ribbon.
