Cherry Blossoms and Cat Hair May 15 2013, 0 Comments

Digging out the house and studio after Hurricane Mother’s Day. Not sure if I've shifted more leaves/stems/compost or cat hair by volume.

Thanks to everyone who helped, ordered, and stopped by; I had a tremendous weekend! My dogs were barkin', but I sold a lot of gorgeous flowers and plants, made a lot of moms happy, and learned a lot. You can’t slap the grin off my face!

I’ll leave you for today with a couple shots of the week… and of course, the kitty.

Here is a snap of my Sunday at about 3 hours to quittin’ time:

And here is where all the magic doesn’t happen… is that a flower shop in my car? Nope, I’m just happy to see you.

FACT: if you need to cram everything you own into a super-not-sexy vehicle, the 2006 Ford Focus will do the trick. Remind me to tell you about the time we packed all our earthly goods into that thing and drove to California for the year.

The cherry and apple blossoms are out in Kingston- I’ve been clipping and using (and sniffing, as allergies permit) with absolute JOY.

And the last of my pincushion leucospermum went into a birthday centrepiece for a special recipient on Tues. (NOT protea! I have been spreading floral misinformation around the town.) Plant ID troubles aside, this may be my favourite thing I have ever made to date:

Mr. Whiskers would like you to know that she has finally killed the evil piece of window screen (yes, she has toys. She prefers the piece of window screen.)

And also, she helped with all the bows.

I will have some much-more-skillfully-taken photos for all y’all once I receive emails and USB keys from various Mother’s Day helpers and photographers. I also did a studio/product shoot with Mr. David Slack on Tues, which I am quite excited to show you! Have a lovely week!

Yours Sincerely,
The Cherry Blossom Thief
