Oh wow! Last weeks link up was incredible, thank you so so much for joining in and foraging. I loved everyone of your posts. Each one bought a great feeling of joy.
This weeks image is by Lynne of Papermash. She really went for it. Secateurs in hand off she went and snipped some of the prettiest blooms. So beautifully displayed, what do you expect from a super stylist. Lynne owns the best shop Papermash – if it’s beautiful stationery you are after, this is your shop!
I wish I could have everyone’s image up here from last week. I could have picked all of them – you are talented bunch! I loved Polly’s bright yellow and foraged arrangements, Nell’s (Phiney’s) hand picked delicate flowers, Doris’ Fuscias, Milina’s warm autumn display, Lisbeths little cup of Violets. Heck I loved them all!!! I am sure you must have your favourites. Do tell?
Ok – last week we agreed that theme’s were a good thing. I am going to think on that. But this week… I think another Forage. Lets really go for it. Something we don’t normally gravitate to. A bunch of interesting leaves, a fir cone, if you head to the beach what will you find?
Also – today is the 1st of May – May Day! I recently read this article from Darling Magazine – about giving gifts to your friends and neighbours on May Day. So maybe our foraged treats could be given to your nearest and dearest? Just a thought. It really is a lovely idea.
Can’t wait. Thank you all for playing along, it really is the highlight of my week!
