THURSDAY FLOWERS.........Roses and Ranuculas

                    Hello my lovely friends !

In my busy little corner of the world I have been creating up a storm making lots of beautiful bunches and arrangements and booking happy brides in for their special days.
Life as a florist is amazing and I am completely in love with what I do.  Who knew that work could be so addictive and fulfilling. 
Why on earth didn't I chose this path years and years ago ???

I have had very little time for blogging which I am missing terribly but it also means that I have not had a whole lot of time to go antiquing hoo

Instead I pass the time making beautiful art with flowers.  
I regularly find myself smiling as I do this.  I LOVE it !

Today I have been busy preparing for a market day that I am part of.  I have been making lots of teacup posies, bunches, arrangements and some little cupcake posies. Tomorrow I have something new to make to add to my repertoire. I always have something a little different each month to entice my customers.  There was no time for pics today but I will take some tomorrow and post a few for you to see here on my blog.

This pic above is a bunch of loveliness that I delivered to a customer today.  
Roses, Ranuculas and Dusty Miller all wrapped up in a pretty vintage supper cloth.  A beautiful combination !
I kept the colour palette very soft and pretty because the customer loves pretty pink flowers and I have to admit I DO TOO ! lol

               Wishing you all loads of happiness and love.


  1. So pretty, Melanie.
    I am glad you get to do what you love to do.

  2. Hi Melany!!
    It's so HOT HERE!!! If we had flowers outside, they're dead or close to it, so seeing your beautiful arrangements makes me drool!!
    Hope you are doing well!! It's been so hot and yucky that I've quit blogging because we keep the house sectioned off for cooling, and so my crafting has been very little lately. Soon I'll start again...I hope!
    I've missed you! Not much going on here. Just hot.
    Hope you have a lovely weekend!

  3. Very lovely flowers. I recently took on a full time teaching job this year. I also can't blog as much as I would like, but I do enjoy reading and posting whenever I get a chance.

  4. Lovely! Roses are amongst my favourites! I spent my summer holiday iin Sydney visiting my sister and family, so was in your neck of the woods.

  5. Melanie, I finally posted on my blog today, after a long absence. While doing so I found several comments sent to me over the summer I had never seen. I would have written sooner had I seen your comment. I want to thank you so much for visiting and checking in on me. How nice to have someone care enough to do that! I still wish I could come to see all your beautiful flower creations. I hope you are doing well and are happy! Big hugs to you!

  6. Lovely bouquet! Glad the floristry is going so well. We had an amazing holiday in Sydney with my sister and her family in August - my first time!
