I am in a terribly good mood, despite the fact that my good friend PNL just told me that my photos look cheesy (me, in general, and the non existent styling, not the photography). After expressing my hatred for him and his comment, I agreed and am again on the search for a photographer that can direct and make me look fab, dahling. I clean up real nice sometimes.
So the other day(s) I had coffee ice cream for breakfast. In order for this to make sense, you must know three things: I have never in my life tried coffee ice cream before, I do not drink coffee (an occasional sip of black when there are desserts involved), and I have an extremely addictive personality. The moral of the story is that I require supervision. On a tangent, Chocolate covered macs are SO much better with Hello Kitty gracing the packaging don’t you agree? Thanks L!
The other day I had a date with my girlfriend H. Aside from stuffing ourselves with delicious goodies LA has to offer & visiting the Annenberg Space (Water exhibit is currently going on and I recommend it to anyone and everyone), we also went to the flower mart where we started her Manzanita project. While most of the wedding industry has been there and done that, there are many that still pursue the beauties of this tree and really it is no wonder it is being used everywhere… each branch takes on its own personality and there are so many things you can do. What’s even more challenging (= fun) now is to do something truly unique that has yet to be done with them (I won’t pursue it but let me know if you do!).
What innovative & beautiful designs have you seen done with manzanita branches?
I made this simple little decorative piece for her living room side table, finished off with a decorative vase, grey spanish moss & little pearly and metal balls hidden in the moss:
Also it is N’s mother’s birthday today and here is a detail from my arrangement for her, filled with spider mums, lilacs, and tulips:
Have a great weekend everyone!
