Inspirations for the florist

Hello dear readers,

First of all, I am lucky and happy to let you know that Alexandra's giveaway prize has arrived whole and safe.  I already have plans for a barbeque scene with these wonderful items.  The vegetables in the bowl, as well as the meat pieces, are fantastical life-size looking.

Thank you, dear Alex, for your generous prize.


Sometimes I have to improvise for materials.  I don't know how many of you, dear readers, remember the little cottage I made from a cheap wooden cash-box. (Photo below.)

Here is one of those cash-boxes.  They cost about  US$0.60 which is quite cheap for the wood I get after taking them apart in the microwave oven.

You will agree with me that a florist needs a sink table for flower arrangements.  My inspiration comes from the very creative Jodi who creates beautiful sink units.  The bottom of the box makes a perfect table top for a sink unit, saving me a lot of work. The ceramic bowl is made by my daughter Nilly.
(I have to search my stash for more of these bowls.)


This beautiful miniature florist shop (From Pinterest) inspired me to make a few wooden crates for my project. They will be great for displaying the plant pots.

The crates are a flexible way for displaying the flowers pots and accessories.  I have not yet decided which color to paint them.  All suggestions are welcome.

I wish you a lovely weekend with blessings.
