@nonihana  Lovely Flowergrammers: @nonihana  flowergrammers

Hello everyone!
As it is also probably the case for you as well, I am using and liking Instagram more and more this days.  It is a place where I share some flowers of course, but also some little corner of my home and some more personal pictures, of my daughter for instance.
I also a place where I connect with like minded people from around the world.
I am following a lot of flower enthusiastic on Instagram: florists, growers, flower stylists or just flower lovers. I spotted a lot of the blogs I have presented so far under Lovely Flower Blogs on Instagram. 
A lot of my friends, send me emails or tweets, when they spot a nice flowergrammer, So I thought I might also share them with you!
Unfortunatly, the great Flower Instagrammers, or Flowergrammers are not always bloggers, but they take such great pictures, that I thought, I would do a new series on the blog and show you my favourites - one each week. 
The first one is a flower stylist from Japan called Yukiko Masuda and @nonihana_ on Instagram. 
I love her simple and elegant style and her use of linen and used wood as a backdrop.
I wish you an excellent weekend!
I hope you like this new series. I can’t wait to show you the lovely flowergrammer I picked for next week. 
Talk to you soon,
Elodie

Hello everyone!
I have been wanting to show you this bouquet since the beginning of June. I made it when I was in France, staying at my parent’s in law. They have a beautiful garden, which I already showed you there. I especially loved working with the lupin, as I really like their ombre colours. 
I hope you will like this few flowers. I wish you a great day!

madame love loves: Lieschen Müller

Good morning!
Today I am back with a new crush for the madame love loves series. You know I love doudous and soft sculptures. Being the mum of a little girl, probably doesn’t help!
I have been a fan for a long time of the work of German doll maker Lieschen Müller. Her real name is Annelise Müller and I love her creatures.
At the moment, she is not selling her dolls on her website but you can still purchase the doll patterns as PDF files. I just bought this pattern, and I will be showing the work in progress on Instagram as soon as I get started. I haven’t been doing much sewing lately, just a little pouched for my friend Clara’s babyshower.
Now Ella is getting a little older, I really feel the need to be a little bit more creative in my everyday life.
What about you? Don’t you think Lieschen Müller’s little creatures are very poetic and pretty?
I wish you all a great day!

bouquet of mini roses, globe amaranth and black berries

Good morning everyone!
I hope you had a lovely Monday. After a bit of a rough few weeks, I am feeling better and I when I feel good, I like to be surrounded by flowers. I made this little bouquet a few days ago, with some beauties I found in one of my favourite flower shops.
I think they work really well together because:

1- the blooms are all roughly the same size.
2- the colour palette is very elegant, from pink to dark blue.
3- It’s always a good idea to mix fruits or vegetables in your bouquet, to make it visually interesting.

Voila! I hope that you will find this bouquet inspiring and that it will bring you a little bit of happiness too!
Have a great day and talk to you soon,
Elodie

Roses of Picardy

Hello everyone!
I haven’t been posting that much as I am going through quite a lot at the moment. Among other things, I started working again recently and Little Miss Ella started going to the Kindergarden. All is well, and we managed a complete week without bringing any germs home!
Let’s hope we are heading to another successful week.
I was browsing through my pictures yesterday and I realised, that they are still a lot of flower pictures from my French holiday, I haven’t shown you so far. Those pictures are roses pictures. I took in my parent’s garden in the region called Picardy. roses Roses of Picardy flowers 2  Continue reading

Vase Story: Badeteich from Räder

Badeteich from Räder overview Vase Story: Badeteich from Räder flowers 2

Hello everyone!
I have been making bouquets in this vase for a while now, but never found the time to take pictures for the blog. I found this one so lovely that I had to share it with you. 
First, I would like to say a couple of words about the vase. This middle size vase is from the German decoration firm Räder and is called Badeteich {swimming pond} {€ 24.95} and as you can see, there is a little swimmer looking out of the vase. I love the fact that you can tell a new story with each bouquet, by creating the surprise of having a little woman hidden in the vegetation of your bouquet. The little golden fish printed on the vase are also very cute.

For this bouquet, I used:

  • Scabiosa
  • Clematis
  • and Wild Asparagus

I hope you enjoy it!
I wish you all a great day
Elodie
