Flowers & Photos New Year's Giveaway

Hello, Lovelies!

I’m so excited to announce our first giveaway of 2019! Hoorah!

I’ve always loved nature photography and when my parents bought me my first real camera I filled it with hundreds of images of flowers. I know, totally shocking.

It’s funny how everything comes back around, 20 years later and I’m still taking photos of flowers, probably still hundreds. I LOVE capturing these blooms at a perfect moment in time, it’s more than a pretty picture, it’s capturing a unique emotion that is incapable of being recreated. The photo I chose for this giveaway, From My Hands is very special to me for the emotions it evokes and the time it was created and that’s why I chose to share it with you. I hope one of you enjoys it as much as I have. See below for the giveaway details!


Giveaway: From My Hands photography print in 11x14, professionally printed in deep matte texture.

  1. Like our Instagram announcement post.

Best of luck, my friends!

Thanksgiving Centerpieces

Hello Lovely!

The weekend is winding down and I am so sad to see it go—it was simply gorgeous here in Austin. I spent most of the weekend cleaning up the garden and planting out my pre-sprouted bulbs from Floret Flowers. I set two alarms for the Floret bulb sale because Erin sells out in a single day, but thankfully, I managed to snag everything on my wishlist! I have roughly 60 Black and White plus Bordeaux Anemones as well as Champagne Ranunculus bulbs and multiple tulip varieties planted. Mission accomplished!


Now I can start focusing on the next task at hand, Thanksgiving. I LOVE Thanksgiving! It is one of my favorite holidays, not only because it’s the time of year where I make and eat pounds of my mom’s famous rice salad guilt free, but because of the universal feeling of gratefulness you see in those around you. We certainly don’t hear enough thanks in our day to day lives.

I am incredibly grateful for so many things this year. We are finally reaching the end of my husband’s journey to being a PhD grad. We have moved from Oregon to Tennessee to Texas as he pursues this path and he will defend his thesis in February. Yay! There are so many unknowns ahead of us this year but I can honestly say I am so excited for our next adventure and incredibly grateful for the the past 10 years of friendships and provisions we’ve experienced.

All that being said, I would love to share my Thanksgiving joy with you this season through flowers. I am offering a discounted Thanksgiving centerpiece ($60) for those who may be interested and are looking for your Thanksgiving table decor. The image in this post is an indication of one vase option which will be yours to keep, there is also an option for a wooden box arrangement that measures 4x12 inches.

I need at least 5 people to sign up in order to offer these centerpieces at the $60 rate. Feel free to call or message me with any questions/orders. All orders need to be in by Sunday, November 4th.

Can’t wait to hear from you!
