When you pause to consider the bio-diversity on this planet, it makes your jaw drop. It's hard to conceive of the incredible imagination of Mother Nature as she gave life to this world of ours. And when it comes to flowers, Nature's creativity in finding ways to procreate through an often complex relationship with the wind, rain, insects or animal life and a blossom on a plant is awe inspiring.
The flower business is in my blood. I was born and raised surrounded by buckets, bows, flowers and fridges... and my father, who was the biggest influence in my life. He wanted to pass along to his first born daughter all the knowledge he had cultivated in his lifetime of working in a flower shop. He, too, was born into the flower biz; his father had started the legacy in 1938 with his wife, my grandma.
One of our good customers at the shop introduced us to her new business venture, <a title="Sweet Memory Art" href="http://sweetmemoryart.com/" target="_blank">Sweet Memory Art</a>. Something new and different, and perfect for so many things..
Christie takes your words, your photos and your colours and creates beautiful collage jewelry that can be added into your wedding bouquets! These charms then become keepsake necklaces for you to give away as gifts. Imagine, a photo of your grandmother who was unable to attend on your wedding day, or picture of you and your best friend now maid of honour, attached to your bouquet
