Friday Flowers


This morning, whilst running very late for school drop off, I raced around my new old garden and cut some foliage for an arrangement I was wanting to create for the shop today. Here is the result above. The arrangement sits on a beautiful oval Antique table which actually just sold to one of my lovely clients this afternoon. I am loving big glass vases filled with masses of leaves at the moment. Luckily my garden seems to have the perfect plants for this type of arrangement.

As ever, just the right balance.
The leaves are stunning against the colour of the artwork and the dark anchor of the table.

I love how you managed to find time to grace that stunning table with an arrangement of fresh foliage, all whilst running very late. I love a woman who has her needs met. Love that you sold the table - it is gorgeous.

Tracey said...

Hi Anna,

When you paint stuff white. Do you use a pure brilliant white or a 'shaded white'?
