There’s a little flower shop called “Blossoms” right on the way to the studio. I stopped there for the first time the day of the mariachi party last Monday, to get some things for fresh flower bouquets for the bar, buffet and restrooms.

Surprisingly I found big sewing machines in the back, behind the flowers, and then realized that there is an upholstery shop in the same place, run by the same woman.

There are so many flowers blooming in our yard right now, but it’s nice to be able to stop at the flower shop and pick out a few things to add into arrangements.

Here’s a few other odd things sitting in the front lobby of the studio today. The little wooden man is a working maquette for the 23′ tall Kinetic Man by Russ, and I made the ceramic pots a long time ago.  It’s nice being surrounded by art, but there also something wonderful about fresh flowers.

  • Hi PaMdora,
    I was in Amsterdam a couple of years ago and was totally amazed by the flowers EVERYWHERE! Even in a laundromat, or corner store there was a small/large bouquet of flowers in the window. It was so beautiful. There are flower stalls on every corner and huge (3 foot tall) displays in boutique windows, museums and hotel lobbies.
    I wish I had thought to take pictures of every one that I saw…. Next time!!!

    On that same trip I went to the quilt show in Leewarden and saw your quilts displayed1 Another exciting moment….

    • Thanks Heather, I was thinking too about big cities where I see flower stalls as I walk down the street. I guess surrounded by so much pavement, people need flowers even more.

      Glad you got see my quilts while they were in Leewarden.
      You have a lovely website – thanks for leaving the link!
