Our delightful and inspiring hostess invited us into her home for the weekend, though to simply use the word “home” doesn’t quite do it justice. The gardens alone were enchanting; one of those rare places where time seems to stop and you can fully enjoy the beauty of God’s nature surrounding you. Somehow even the dirt in the garden seemed to inspire me.
Another guest joined us as well this weekend who happened to be my lovely friend, Jacqueline Butler of Petalsweet Cakes. In fact, I had met our delightful hostess while studying with Jacqueline last year (you can read about that amazing class here).
During our time together, we crafted anemones, freesia, and lilacs within this delightful, intimate and inspiring setting. Needless to say, I didn’t want it to end. But sadly, all good things must too come to an end. However, this time, not only did I create beautiful flowers, I also left with beautiful friendships.
