baby's breath typography

this baby’s breath typeface by keziah chong is made from gypsophila, affectionately know as baby’s breath. gypsophila means to miss, to adore, and to give, and though it often serves a supporting role, it becomes the star of this typeface. it has a feeling of freshness, graciousness, and tenderness- all of which i adore.

hi all! this is bonnie’s mom, maxine, and i’m so excited to post for you today! i am always inspired by bonnie’s projects- in fact, her whole life inspires me. i inherited a few of her youngest chickens when she left for colorado and they began to lay this week! i was absolutely thrilled. one of them is an easter egger, which means she will lay blue eggs. i really miss bonnie, but i know she’s where she is supposed to be right now, and i’m excited for her.

diy pumpkin fower vase

she asked if i’d like to post instructions for a floral arrangement that i made for becky’s (her sister’s) halloween party. this arrangement would be nice to use through thanksgiving and it’s really very easy to do.

diy pumpkin fower vase
 

supplies:

- a pumpkin
- assorted flowers
- assorted greenery (i used hydrangea stems, bradford pear tree limbs and ornamental grasses, all from my yard)
- chicken wire (about 5″ x 24″) or florists foam (the kind that absorbs water)

diy pumpkin fower vase
 

directions:

step 1: cut out the top of the pumpkin. save it to use in the arrangement.
step 2: clean out the inside of the pumpkin and discard. (seeds and gooey stuff)
step 3: roll up the chicken wire into a loose ball & stuff it inside the pumpkin. it won’t move around if you push it in place. if you don’t have chicken wire you can use florist foam. it needs to be slightly larger than the inside bottom half of the pumpkin so that it will stay firmly in place.
step 4: use a florist pick or wire to attach the pumpkin top to the front side of the pumpkin edge. I used a few 3″ long florist wire pick.
step 5: arrange your flowers as desired. add the greenery where needed.
step 6: fill with water and enjoy!

redraven

we’ve all seen our fair share of little antique tea cups collaged with decals- whether in our grandmother’s cupboard or at the antique walk about.  they can be stunningly beautiful, but have always left me perplexed.  i’m no tea cup collector and i have no ornate shelves protected by glass doors for such fragile pieces.  inspired by the dying popularity of such pieces, redraven was born.  amy lumsden uses the same antique techniques to make modern necklaces, earrings, belt buckles and hair pins.  how pretty would one of these sweet necklaces be paired with a fall dress, high waisted belt and a simple cardigan? timeless.

bold and beautiful, yellena’s work has accurately been described as “colorful arrangements of organic shapes and tangled lines (which) are at once floral and alien, organic and sci-fi, crafty and fantastic.”  i love the intricate detail, whimsy nature and satisfying colors that all of yellena’s art exemplifies.  some (especially the last one) remind me of a map, one that i would follow anywhere it led it me.  how would you describe her work?
