behind the scenes

I loved being behind the scenes for Kim's event last week. Here's a peek of a happy bundle of "puff balls" waiting to be hanged. Kim had so many of these puff balls and they are so pretty. They remind me of pouffy peonies or prom dresses. And just look at that pretty rose ball that Kim made...Friday morning, before we started setting up for the event, Kim Hesson, Sherry, and I went to the flower mart with Kim. You wouldn't believe how many flowers Kim bought in just 30 minutes. We were her mules...just look at the haul we were toting for her. Happily, I might add.

It was quite an experience being surrounded by so many beautiful flowers...





When I talked to my father this morning (Hi, Daddy!) he complained about me promising another update for two days ago but not delivering. Anyway, here's that post...I'm trying! Oh, but I won't have the Etsy shop update until next week. A sweet friend asked me not to post them until she returns from a trip this weekend. Plus, the gloomy skies would mean grainy pictures.

How did it get to be Thursday already? Really...how did that happen?

I have managed to wangle my way into a flower market twice in my life... it was amazing! I can only imagine the humidity and the scent, but the exhilaration of picking up bundles like that for an event: heavenly!

I just followed the link to Kim Caldwell's blog. I had no idea you were in L.A. to teach your class, ugh! My neck of the woods. I feel awfully silly that I asked when you would be here;)Well hopefully next time you are I will get to take your class.

Is there any chance you would sell your house wreathes as kits, because I'd be first in line for one.
