It’s Nearly Christmas

I’ve been beavering away this week with my website which I’m dying to share with you but sadly it isn’t ready yet.  It’s coming up to Christmas and has been a really busy time for me with various things like getting the Christmas Market happening at my sons school and finishing my website and just everything in order for potential buyers which I hope will come my way over the next few weeks.  One thing I am happy that I have managed to complete and get ready are my new postcards.

I’m thrilled with my new cards that arrived a week ago.  They have some of my favourite flowers on and the finish of them is really excellent.  I can’t wait to start selling them.  As soon as they were delivered I had my first order which was fab and always makes me feel like it’s worth while.

Anyhow here is a picture of the new postcards.  If anyone is interested in buying any please do get in touch.  There are 5 different cards in a pack and cost £5 including postage and packaging (around the UK).  Spread the word.

Thanks.

Christmas has come early

This week Christmas has come early.  Its August and I have been continuing with my styling but this time on a Christmas theme.  Its often the hottest time of year that I do the Christmas shoots for magazines which always feels a little daft.  Yet again I was in a London house and this was the wreath that I did for the door.

The house was in some beautiful greys and so I wanted to compliment it using eucalyptus as the greenery with some classic roses and the soft pinks and greens of hydrangea.  I really enjoy unusual wreaths and often like the use of vegetables or fruit in them.  Artichoke can often be a good choice as the purple and the spikey leaves can compliment the softness of the flowers.  Also pomegranate is a good idea as they are very much a Christmas fruit with a really lovely red colour and wonderful shape.

Be bold this Christmas and do something crazy.  Its a fun time of year so its nice to reflect this in your wreath.  Don’t be scared!

Look out for my styling and paintings in January’s issue of Homes and Garden (UK).
