My all time favourite flower is the Peony. When I see one, I have to stop and take it in. The volouptuouse form, the softness, the fullness, the delicate colours, the wonderfulness of these flowers! I am so taken by these flowers that I have tried to capture them on paper on quiet a few occasions and I think it is some thing I will keep on drawing. Here are some shots of a bunch of soft pink Peonies I had at home and two illustrations I have done, both available in our etsy shop as prints.
I recently had the pleasure of a photographer and a journalist being in my home for an upcoming article (which I will post about once published). This gave me a great excuse for updating a few items in my home, spending hours styling it and putting out lots of lovely flowers. It was nice to have a pretty, clean and photo worthy home, even if only for a few hours! I took a few shots myself before it all returned to the normal mess. You can view the rest of the images on my flickr stream here or my pinterest board here.
Poppies for Grace were exhibiting along with us at the Big Design Market last weekend. They did the most impressive stall with a beautiful tissue paper backdrop in rainbow colours - and I thought what a brilliant idea for our Christmas decorations this year! Here are the results, what do you think?
