Pottery Barn Flower for a lavender purple bedding set or nursery

Pottery Barn is one of the most popular kids bedding brand here in the US. I usually wait for the Pottery Barn catalogs to come in the mail to preview the latest collections especially for kids. Eye catching colors and exquisite designs make pottery barn designs a thrill to own.That was my plug for PB..:-)

I was trying to recreate these flowers for Angie the exception that her walls are grey and so I wanted purple or light lavender flowers with centers.


These are their lavender quilts I love so much!

A Forget Me Not Memorial Rememberance

The Forget-Me-Not flower is a favorite wild flower of many; however, this small, blue flower has been a symbol of both love and hope, they are often ordered for a  memorial or wedding as seeds packets

I had an order as it my client's father memorial function, (having been through one for my brother myself)  as her father loved the forget me nots.

Along with it I created a tiny arrangement of gardenia's with some remaining forget me nots in a deep blue mini bottle for my etsy shop,with Mother's Day fast approaching you could order it for your Mom!

Leaving you with this song that I love..

God be with you till we meet again; 
When life’s perils thick confound you;
Put His arms unfailing round you; 
God be with you till we meet again. 

God be with you till we meet again; 
Of His promises remind you; 
For life’s upper garner bind you;
God be with you till we meet again. 

God be with you till we meet again;
Sicknesses and sorrows taking, 
Never leaving or forsaking; 
God be with you till we meet again.

God be with you till we meet again; 
Keep love’s banner floating o’er you, 
Strike death’s threatening wave before you; 
God be with you till we meet again. 

God be with you till we meet again; 
Ended when for you earth’s story, 
Israel’s chariot sweep to glory; 
God be with you till we meet again.
