- Hello and welcome to my blog. If you like flowers and gardens, housey stuff, food and banter, then this is the place for you. I am a decorative artist, florist and maker of things. I sell painted furniture, plants and crafts, through a local retail shop, in my native Ireland, and wedding flowers from home. I am married to a lovely patient man and have a smashing little girl. I blog for the fun of it. Thank you for listening.

Not quite as pretty as the above, but they did taste lovely.
Now then, down to business. I would like to ask you, my readers, followers and occasional pop-in(ers). If you would mind helping me out a little. I am going to take a stand at the 'Quirky Wedding Fair' in Belfast in Februrary. I am very excited about it and about moving my flower business on. I have so many ideas buzzing around my head about how I would like my stand to look, too many in fact. So, this is were you come in. I have put together some collages on Picmonkey of the sort of looks I could create, and I would very much appreciate your thoughts and comments. Imagine you are a bride to be, or a groom, for that matter, which of the themes would get your attention and why.
Theme 1 Driftwood A beachy theme with shells, lanterns, candles and burlap. Soft pastel colours.
Theme 2 Classic Black & White Elegant and tailored, classic white flowers, some clever back and white art work as a backdrop.
Theme 5 Bird's Nests & Eggs Natural style decorations, twiggy branches and wreaths, gentle colours.
Theme 6 Classic Country Lots of green swags, white flowers, elegant urns and terracotta,
I do hope you enjoy looking at the images and conjuring up possible Wedding scenarios in your mind's eye.
Have a wonderful weekend, with love Linda x.

Seriously though, it is a beautifully presented magazine with really interesting articles. If you are into countryside issues, nature, cooking, crafts, interiors...it has it all.

Of course there are very clever people who can even make a display out of an empty frame.
