I'm dreaming of a white christmas...

I really am dreaming of a white christmas this year! - Especially due to the fact that santa has chose me an extremely cute pair of wellies  perfect for splashing about in the winter weather! Can't wait till tomorrow...
December has been a busy month for me, I've had lots of teacup orders as well as christmas wreaths to construct & flowers have taken over my whole house - including until last night the bath tub!  Here are a few snap shots...

This christmas I have fell in love with berried ivy - it just makes the arrangements look a little more festive some how & I love the look of the dried seed heads. 

I've used this lisianthus quite a lot recently - the giant pink blooms have a lovely unsophisticated flounciness to them! They also remind me a little of peonies. This arrangement consists of lisianthus, eryngium, lavender, roses & senecio leaves. 

Sorry about the poor shots - I think my new year's resolution needs to be developing a few camera skills! - I quickly got a shot of these in transit - the dark purple & red seem to work really well together!

My most christmassy design!

This is a picture from the christmas wreath making workshop that I did at the great Make, Do & Mend earlier this month! It was lots of fun & great to see other people's arrangments! This is the lovely Kellie with her red & white themed wreath!
Have a lovely christmas! Eat, drink & be merry! Alie xxx
