Lately I been filling my frames full of flowers…

And I thought I’d share them here, coz it’s been ages since I shared a few fav fives!

Dandelions are everywhere…

I took part in a beautiful floral workshop

The Cow’s Parsley makes me so happy biking in the park…

Playing with fading peonies…

And the buttercups have sprung up over the weekend!

It’s so joyful spending time with creative people playing & making with flowers & pretty things.

I had the pleasure of joining Philippa of 5ftinf at her floral workshop at West Elm a few weeks ago, to document the experience.

As you can see from the film above…the workshop was packed with prettiness, creativity and good times!

West Elm provided a beautiful space for Philippa to share her process and encourage others to create. The ladies used flowers and greenery to make heart shaped wreaths and flamboyant head pieces.

Tables were bursting with pretty things, colourful flowers, foliage & cups of tea – making a beautiful mess!

Everyone was making… creating… chatting and connecting.

The atmosphere was buzzing with creativity and smiles… from what I could see everyone had a lovely time and so many beautiful pieces were made…

I so enjoyed capturing the experience… Thanks for having me Phillippa and West Elm.

Missed Friday’s grateful post because we were away camping.

So good to be back on camp again, outside all weekend….. singing, fire-making, good food, games, whittling, swimming, talking & laughing, and general merriment.
