Saskia Havekes' Grandiflora





Today I went Mothers Day shopping (along with every other person in Brisbane) and while I was supposed to be looking for things for my mother and my mother-in-law I found a few things for myself too. I justified it that I too was a mother and I too deserve a few special things!! So I bought myself a fantastic mix master, some new baking trays and best of all I bought Saskia Havekes new book Grandiflora. For those of you who don't know about iconic Australian Florist Saskia Havekes she is certainly one creative person. Her Sydney based flower business, Grandiflora is known Australia wide for it's beautiful floral arrangements. Her new books is to die for!!

MOB - or otherwise known as Mother of Blogger - thanks for commenting! I know who you are!! The use of the words "contemplate" and "wow" tipped me off.
Thanks Mum!!
