Lovely Flower Blog #10: Linger Flowers


Hello everyone!
I am back from Umbria, with a lot of impressions and over 1,000 pictures. I will show you some soon on the blog. I am very happy to introduce a new Lovely Flower Blog today. I discovered Nikki and Andy Shenk on Instagram last May and love her story and how her dream came true. I also love the fact that have been inspired and motivated by blogs and Instagram to start their floral business.

Who are you and what are you talking about in your blog?

 We’re a wife-husband duo, Nikki and Andy Shenk, that fell in love with flowers and decided to start our own business, Linger Flowers, in Cincinnati, Ohio. We focus on weddings, holidays and classes. Andy is a writer, so he runs the blog, where he features both the work we do, as well as other elements of the business and our personal life.
Our name, Linger, is very significant to me and Andy and we try to capture our philosophy of savoring each moment in the day through the blog. Flowers, especially, help both of us to linger and appreciate the beauty in our life, which is what we hope to share with our community, whether that be online or in Cincinnati.

Hello everyone!
I hope you had a nice long week end if Monday was a bank holiday in your country. I am back today with a new interview from my series Lovely Flower Blogs. I was so delighted when the very talented, Los Angeles based floral and event designer Heather Williams from the blog Twig & Twine, accepted to take part and answer some questions for you.
I first discovered her work on Instagram.
I love her choice of flowers, the way she works with foliage and her vision about her work as a florist:
“I like to remind people that I am a designer and that flowers/foliage are my medium. I create using the principles of design I just happen to use something that was once growing in the ground.”
So true! If you want to read the interview and see some gorgeous pictures of Heather work – click on the “read more” button. 
Speak to you very soon!

Lovely flower blogs #6: Roses by Claire

Hello everyone,
After a little break, I am back with a new interview from my Lovely flower blogs series. It is already the 6th one and I am very happy to welcome another of my compatriots on the blog today. The lovely Claire from the blog roses by claire. I am really in love with her delicate work and pastel colours. Her work makes me think of this beautiful song from Bjork: subtle and happy!
I am glad Claire agreed to answer a couple of questions about the origin of her passion for flowers and her inspiration. I hope you enjoy it!

Talk to you soon,
