Creative Spaces

Hello Sweet-peas,

I hope you all are having a wonderful summer, because we are! Its been hot, but the rain has cooled us off and made the garden greener.

Tonight, I've added some photos of our studio to facebook. Read the book Where Women Create by Jo Packman inspired me to work on our little room and share some photos. If you haven't read that book, its about the workrooms of creative women. The photos are simply breathtaking. I never imagined paint brushes could look so pretty in a container. After looking at that book, I couldn't resist painting the walls and putting my own pencils in a vintage cat planter.

Most people seem under the impression that our floral arrangements are created inside Camellia Cottage. The inside of the cottage is filled with fine china, linens, tables, and party guests. There simply wasn't enough room inside for all our parties and the florals. Our studio is actually located in the basement. The room is as large as a bedroom, painted a color called "cozy cottage", and has black and white tile floor. You can check out some of our new photos on our facebook album.

Change is in the air!

Hello Sweets,

I know it has been a long time and there really isn’t any excuse. Things have not been going good for my shop. I thought about giving up; but then I decided change is what we need. I must follow my true passion which is not antiques at all but flowers.

Right now, I’m working on getting the new layout up and all the new site pages. I’ve decided to scrap everything but the domain name itself, Everything else will be totally different.

I’m still working on my product line. However the site comes first, then that will give me time to get a plan of what I’ll soon be selling.

This is so exciting! I’m thrilled, and can’t wait to till time to unveil our new products!
