 sim·plic·i·ty –  1.  freedom from complexity;  2. absence of luxury, pretentiousness, ornament, etc.; plainness: a life of simplicity

A life of simplicity.   What does that look like?  In my humble (simple) opinion, it looks like a life that has room or space to it.   Unhurried, uncluttered and unstressed. 

Gardening and foraging at home to create with, fits a simple life.  It causes you to unplug, get your hands dirty, and slow down. 

This foraged bougainvillea placed in a handmade ceramic pot, is an example of simple.  By using one type of flowering branches, loosely placed, there is a simplicity that is restful to look at.  Try it!

Flower Dreams


I had the privilege of doing the flowers for a wedding, last week.  It was such a blast to get creative in the world of flower design.  Peach and white roses, dahlias, peach garden roses, eucalyptus, stock and coffee berries made it easy to put together beautiful arrangements.  I also put my dying skills to work by dying the ribbon for the boutonnieres and bouquets a lovely peach color.  What a fun creative outlet this was.  I think I have found a new passion!!
