It's almost April, which means spring is arriving and soon it will be Easter and then Mother's Day. Around my neck of the woods the weather has been cold, then warm, then cold, then warm - a typical Michigan springtime. We've had a good amount of rain as well. However, the crocuses have peaked up above ground and are even blooming.
Today, while out walking, Murphy took an interest in a great big tree. He would not leave it alone. No wonder! When I peaked inside the deep hollow formed by the trio of large branches near the trunk - there was a sleeping raccoon inside!. At first, I couldn't tell what it was. However, after awhile it did turn around and hiss at us! Graceful thing that I am, I shouted out, stumbled backwards and fell straight on my bum! Murphy looked perplexed at my reaction and jumped right back up on hind legs trying to stick his nose into the hollow. I yanked him out quickly. We made a beeline away from the tree. I don't think the racoon enjoyed our visit very much.
Aside from walking, and then falling, I have also been adding some new springtime and summer bouquets. We have a Spring Romance bouquet made of lavender, peonies, ammobium, baby's breath and purple amaranth. It's wrapped in a sheer lavender ribbon. This bouquet would make a beautiful Easter gift, Mother's Day gift, or can also be used for home decor. These bouquets can also be used for weddings and comes in 3 sizes - flower girl (small), bridesmaid (medium), and bride's (large)
I've also have a cheerful summer festival meadow bouquet. This is a happy and colorful bouquet filled with meadow flowers. It has lavender along with yarrow, purple amaranth, ammobium, baby's breath, purple/coral-pink/blue larkspur. This a perfect rustic bouquet tied with twine. It also comes in the 3 sizes for weddings or can be used for home decor or as Mother's Day gift or Easter Gift.
I really enjoy creating our line of bouquets and now we have 9 different kinds. I am still working on getting matching boutonnieres listed.
Just click on our shop tab and you will be taken to our store front where you can purchase these bouquets and the various other gifts we have to offer. Please order well in advance of the holidays. For weddings it's recommended you order at 2-3 weeks or longer in advance of the event especially for larger orders .
Another gift idea I'd like to highlight is our gift basket. Our gift basket is a great buy because you get 6 of our products with the basket. It comes wrapped with clear basket wrap and purple bow. Products included are a trial size of culinary lavender, lavender beeswax candle, embroidered lavender sachet, linen/floral water, goats milk soaps, lavender bath salts. Last year our gift basket was a best seller for Mother's Day.
Feel free to browse our shop. We have a lot of smaller gift ideas such as linen water, guest soaps, various sachets, painted mason jars. Above is a pastel/Easter colored listing of the painted and distressed mason jars. These can be used for showers, home decor, nurseries, or as centerpieces.
Flowers are NOT included. If you'd like me to add flowers at an additional charge please send me a custom request. White silk flowers will be 5.99 extra per jar, and dried lavender 6.99 per jar.
That's it for today. Murphy and I will not be looking into any trees in the future, but we will keep up with our walking and posting updates. Please enjoy the gallery of the new bouquets. Easter blessings!
