early december floral class at sabia

We had such a fun class on December 5th at Sabia! Students picked out flowers at the wholesaler to make a hand-tied bouquet- everyone's turned out wonderful. Then we made arrangements in urns... check back for more classes in 2011. Happy Holidays!

howl store opening

Howl, who's tagline is Fearless Home Fashion, just opened a retail store on Lamar here in Austin. Barry and Kim Jelinski have put together a wonderfully odd and authentic collection of pieces, both found and fabricated. I did a few arrangements for their opening party, but was too tired to actually attend it! Notice the taxidermied mouse in the maze coffeetable above...

Eagle on loan from Uncommon Objects; I like it so much it might find a permanent nest as a light fixture in my home.
