HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! a special post for today…

LOOKING FOR AN UNTRADITIONAL wreath or flower decoration, or maybe just a little inspiration for the holidays? Turn to Brooklyn-based floral designer Emily Thompson. I came across here work recently and was enthralled. In all works of art I tend to favor the disheveled, the mysterious, and sometimes the out-of-this-world quality (some of the plants she uses really sound like they’re from another world!). Emily’s work shares some of those qualities, which is why I think they appeal to me so much. 

ramps, red currants

lady slipper, conch, plumosa fern

smokebush, roses, jasmine, scabiosa, viburnum

smilax, parrot tulips
