Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival

A few weeks back we created a flower bomb at the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival!  It's a really unique street fest in the city.  Pop up galleries host incredible artists, local restaurants serve amazing food and Chicago bands play a few separate stages.  Here are some images of what we came up with!

Fleur Valentine

We've ordered some of our favorites for Valentine's Day!  Red roses of course, but also peonies, anemones, ranunculus, tulips, blossoming branches, garden roses, gloriosas and so many more.  Don't forget, we deliver!  Call in your order early to make sure it's one of the first to be sent out on Thursday!  You can always stop in the shop and pick out your blooms, or just call and have us design something ready for pick up!

And.., we'll also be at Gaslight Coffee Roasters 7am-noon with pre-made bouquets, both hand tied and in mason jar vases!  Happy Valentine's Day!

Thanks Re:find Joy for the fliers, Jaclyn Simpson & Simply Jessie for the photos!!

Pretty things & shop local!

We have some pretty things.

Little terrariums and lovely succulents.

Handmade stockings

Hanging feather ornaments

and adorable, handmade cross stitches.  Plus lots of other goodies.  Like our vintage wine decanter with boat etchings, or Linnea's Lights candles.

Shopping local is really, really important & we appreciate.  I love this organization, Local First, dedicated to just that.

Almost all of my gifts this year are handmade or purchased in an independently owned business.  It's tricky to sometimes find the right gift, but feels just so satistfying afterwards.

Hope your holiday shopping has been as stress free as possible!
