Goodness where has a year gone? and what a year its been!

I'm currently staying in a little holiday cottage, in Looe, Cornwall. Its raining heavily outside but I'm laid on a four poster bed watching the fire and listening to some Christmas Jazz.It all very relaxing!

I'm busy getting the web shop ready for some new festive designs but also getting some much needed admin sorted!

I always find Christmas creeps up on me sooner than I would like and opportunities like this I love to use the slow hours of the day to get productive.

This year the glass decorations have returned in luxurious plum ribbons.

Theres still a few bundles of ivory dadels left, waiting to be made into festive wreaths.

Dried lemon, oranges and cinnamon have been strung to make some heavenly scented garlands.

Then of course Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without some gold! some really gorgeous coloured florals making there way to the website next week.


Merry Christmas Everyone x

'Timeless'-Lasting, Classic, Ageless, Without End.


In July 2019 I released my 4th collection of designs 'The Timeless Collection'.

In this collection my air drying methods were put to one side and I have used another traditional method to capture dried flowers at their very best.This method retains their colour and shape, giving the appearance of fresh.Yet they are 100% dried.

There really are no limits to what type of flowers can be dried.But I like to use classic old fashioned favourites in my designs and I concentrate on neutral colour palettes that work well in any interior.


In this collection I have used my favourite flowers of the season, Peonies,Hydrangeas,Roses and many other summer blooms from my garden.These are the stunning focal points of my wreaths so I like to work with flowers that have unique textures, shape and colour.


As well as my larger designs, I have produced some miniature wreaths which are only around 6"these have been extemely popular and come in a stunning flower bag.

I typically air dry my florals for that beautiful vintage aged look.The flowers tend to close slightly and through the process change colour. Some times lightening or darkening.

Recently I have been using another natural process which retains their shape and colour. Giving the appearance of fresh flowers, when actually they are 100% dried.

They are slightly more delicate giving a tissue paper like quality.But look almost the same as before the process.

My new wreath 'The Joys of Spring' incorporates Anemones, Garden Roses, Statice and Lisianthus using this process. For those of you that love an untouched, vibrant look.
