Happy Tuesday!



  1. I am really drawn to that last bouquet. I like that Craspedia has such versatility. It can be used to add a little playfulness to any bouquet, or I see it worked in to add a pop of color. But it can also make a really modern piece such as the above design from Planet Flowers.

    Thank you for providing me with a dose of beauty each morning!

  2. oh yea LOVE love love.. I use a ton!!
