Fall Wedding.

Jared and Carrie's wedding. This is what happens when the bride shows me the colors she is using and then lets me do what I want. Fun.

Autumn Bouquets

I'm so happy the seasons are changing and so are the color combinations and flower selections at The Nesting Co. Here are a few arrangements we captured just before they left the store. Enjoy, Heidi

Glamor Rubbage

Picture courtesy of The Nesting Co.
My friend Lisa DelMonico(a local jewelry artist) and I have been collaborating on my new custom one of a kind jewelry line. Here is the first piece, it consist of an antique key, a strand of clear faceted stones, a mother of pearl button shaped like a flower and a buckle, a glass leaf, a rhinestone button and a faux pearl bead. 90% of it is vintage and it represents the things I love to surround myself with in my nest. This one's name is Green. I call the line "Glamor Rubbage". I will post more as they are created.

Everyday is different. I don't really know what I will be doing from one week to the next. This picture is of an arrangement I did last week for a party where I got to make arrangements for every room of the customer's home. Today I did flowers for a funeral and tomorrow I will make a bride's bouquet for her bridal portraits. I don't like doing the same thing everyday so this job seems a great fit.

A Store and a Home

The Old Drug Store building in Burton,is a historical landmark built in 1874. One of the first buildings built in Burton. It had originally been the local drug store/gift shop with soda fountain, it was also the first post office in Burton. It was like the current day clinic, having a doctor's office in the back and the pharmacy in the front. Dr. Laass and Dr. Southern were the two doctors it has seen in it's life time. It was sold in the late 60's to early 70's to the McGill's and was then transformed into a craft store where you could take art lessons, learn ceramics and eggery. It was the office for an accountant and a antiques shop. Then in 1994 it was put on the market for sale and with my parent's support, I made if my home and future store. 
I was only 18 years old at the time with endless engery and a head full of dreams.
