DIY // a wildflower arrangement straight from the market

If there’s one topic I’ve wanted to share more of on this blog, it would be floral arrangements. I absolutely love love love flowers, but florist, I am not. That’s why I am so thrilled to introduce our new Floral DIY contributor, Sarah of The Stemmery. Sarah is just the person to help bring to life all of the ideas I desperately want to do, but lack the skills to actually pull off. For example, I asked her to create a flower arrangement that looked like you’d just gone to a summer farmers market and filled a tote with wildflowers instead of veggies. And this is what she created! Amazing, huh?

Seattle like a Local // Miroja

I feel like it’s been a hot minute since I shared some of my favorite spots here in Seattle. Miroja the sweetest plant and home decor shop, or as I refer to it, the best serotonin boost you can ask for. I’m lucky in that this gorgeous shop is on the ground level of my new studio space, so I can pop downstairs whenever I’m feeling blue or lacking inspiration. Usually this means I end up bringing home a few leafy friends, too.

Recently I put together this centerpiece and added a few more special touches: moss, crystals, and one amazing, oversized geode. The result is pure twinkly magic.
