~ anemone love



Well it seems I've become a bit preoccupied with anemones.

Especially white ones.



I don't know how I've never noticed them before!

While putting together a post on tablescape inspiration for January, I came across this image...

And the search for more began...
(thank you Pinterest)

















While working on this post, I kept thinking of a floral arrangement I had seen recently with anemones. And finally it hit me... Kyle Robino did some flowers for my SIL!

I adore them!



Super charming and my new favorite.

After posting this sneak peek on instagram this weekend...

~ the color purple



I am not a lover of purple, or I didn't think I was, but when I see how Carolyne Roehm frequently uses purple ~ purple flowers, purple glassware and stemware ~ I am forced to rethink…







This is my favorite ~ that container!


Here are some of the purple flowers in Carolyne's garden...


If I had purple flowers in the garden for the taking, like Carolyne Roehm does, purple would certainly be an easy choice...

And since I'm so pleased with purple, here are a few other images from Pinterest...







Love these antique hydrangea with purple hues...

That image reminded me of my purple hydrangeas from Whole Foods last spring…




Perhaps I was mistaken... 
Pinterest has found the purple-lover in me!

Harrison Howard is a dear friend of mine and an artist I have admired for years. I contacted him on a whim to help with a project in 2012 and was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with him. I was able to spend some time with he and his wife in Omaha, and they are about the nicest couple I've ever met.

What a joy it was to see Harrison's work featured online at Tiger Flower Studio. The website features limited edition prints, primarily printed for the very first time, representing a small group of extraordinary artists with exceptional talent. 

Especially loved these new designs from Harrison Howard!





While perusing the website, I discovered Mita Corsini Bland...




And was delighted to see Caitlin McGauley ~ another favorite of mine...

There are several other artists represented, all with impressive biographies and accomplishments. Visit the website for more information.
