Flowers and changes

We are in the middle of Soccer Tournaments and Dance Recital weekend but I wanted to share some news with you.

I've considered this for a while now and have made the decision to discontinue all silk floral pieces.

I'm going back to preserved and dried - just can't stay away from floral design.

They also remain an inspiration for my floral art - which I am also getting back to - but in a different mixed media sort of way.

So this means I have a bit of inventory to move along. I will be using up what I have and can no longer take custom orders on silk florals.

     All Florals have been discounted 25% Off! 

This fall I will introduce a new line of dried and preserved which I think you will love!

Hope you all have a very relaxing Memorial Day Weekend!

I Love the North Fork! (Long Island, NY)

I think I say this to you every Spring/Summer/Fall, but I really do.

This weekend I made my first trip out for the season.

One of my boys had a soccer game out East and I had this Peconic Fair on my calendar. I found out about it on Danielle's blog The Vintage Dragonfly.

It was sponsored by White Flower Farmhouse - and I needed to make a trip there for another one of their scented candles (shown above in the teacup) - they smell sooo good!

So we turned the soccer game into a mother/son date. The fair, shops, farm stands and lunch. My older son is pretty domestic so he enjoyed the trip together.

Our first stop was the White Flower Farmhouse.
And I found this gorgeous ironstone platter (pictured above) - loved all of the crazing and it's great patina.

We stopped into the shop next door A Taste of the North Fork and I picked up some Berry Merry fruit topping - great for a grilled chicken sandwich!

Said hello to Danielle - with her beautiful display of her creations.

We were then off to some local farm stands for fruits, veggies and pies.

Lunch was the final stop and my son spotted this cute cafe in Mattituck on Love Lane.
It's called the Love Lane Kitchen. We had some yummy sandwiches on focaccia.

The weather was gorgeous...

It was a perfect day...

Stop by Kathleen's Faded Charm Cottage for some White Wednesday inspiration!

New Cookbook

It's mom's bday and I picked up the new Giada Cookbook for her. I should have picked up two. Some great recipes in there like Italian Fried Olives, Roasted Eggplant and White Bean Crostini, Chicken Milanese with Tomato and Fennel, Italian Lentil Salad, and Espresso Caramel Bars - ok I'll stop now!

I also found these beautiful tulips - one of her favorite flowers - loved the striped petals.

And the sugar lime cookies, couldn't resist.

On my way to lunch with mom. Hope you're having a great week!

It's almost Friday!
