Working Designer Wednesday: Mixed Bag

Jul 11, 2012

I love Wednesdays because either 1) we are hearing advice from the Botanical Brouhaha Expert Panel or 2) I get to share with you the mixed bag of cool stuff I’ve been saving for you throughout the week! So, here’s what I’ve got today…

1. For those of you who have emailed to ask about our cutting garden…a few shots of the garden and a few arrangements we’ve made for Leaf & Bloom…BTW, “we” refers to my sweet friend Melora and myself, just in case you’re wondering who is out there in the garden with me…giving it our best shot in the Texas heat…no chemicals, all natural…
