~ the monkey flower group

Was it the name that drew me in? Or was it the use of citrus fruits in these gorgeous arrangements? I can't recall, but regardless, I'm thrilled to have found The Monkey Flower Group!


Kudos to Luke Snyder Studio for documenting this beauty...






Can you see how I was completely overcome? Here's a softer look from The Monkey Flower Group... I like saying The Monkey Flower Group.




More citrus...









The Monkey Flower Group is a small floral design studio specializing in perfectly lovely botanical pieces to hold, wear, and share. They use locally grown flowers, natural fiber ribbons, and recycled/recyclable packaging, containers, and paper products. They basically rock on every level. Oh, and they're in Napa. Can you imagine a better place to be creating these special works of art? I can't.


Thank you to The Monkey Flower Group for allowing me to use their images. To visit their website, click here

My love for Lilly Pulitzer intensifies during the summer. I can hardly wait to get out the Lilly skirts and shifts!
As crazy as I am about orange, and I think you know the crazy I speak of, I do love myself some pink and green. Just look at how these colors influence our lives.

 If you've never considered pink and green, please do so asap.

~ blue and yellow

The title of this post does not refer to my son's school colors... 

Mary Douglas Drysdale posted this image on her Facebook wall a while back and it stopped me in my tracks! So fresh and charming. I'm quite taken with MDD and did a post on her work. (here)
Here's another photo I discovered on her Facebook... more blue and white and that little tangerine is just perfect!

MDD is a lover of yellow for sure...

I digress. Back to blue and yellow...
I noticed Stacey's love of blue and yellow when I did her inspired home. (here)



More beautiful blue and yellow...

I can't say that I have a lot of blue or yellow in my home... But I sure do love the combination!
