my favorite floral reads

Babes! Today I'm gathering up a list of some of my favorite floral books that I recommend to my flower arranging students and also have in my own collection. Sometimes it can be nice to put down the phone, step away from Instagram (& Pinterest) and feel the pages between your fingers while getting some inspiration and learning a few new things a long the way.

These are definitely tried and true books that myself and my floral friends all love and I hope you will too!  Happy reading.. and creating!!

digital prints

It's here! Our digital print collection is now available online.  After a very busy summer I'm so glad to have found the time to do this after so many comments on our instagram and some pressure from friends.  After purchasing you will receive a link to download your high resolution file and can start using it right away.

The collection of color and black/white prints are full rights personal or commercial use.  These can be printed or used online without having to link back to us -- if you use on social media though please give us a shout out!! Great for bloggers, designers or just to print out if you love photos of botanicals.  We hope you enjoy them!  


wolf and woman

The city was full of smoke and air quality advisories for a few days from the fires nearby, when I reached my limit of being cooped up, it finally broke.  So with no destination in mind I just got out of the house.   Its funny, I've been on the hunt for local grasses to forage and can never seem to find them when needed for jobs- but tonight I had no problem, of course thats the way it works.

some days I am more wolf than woman
and I am still learning how to stop apologizing for my wild

diy botanical body soak

If you haven't had a chance to make it to one of our classes we thought we'd bring the class to you.  This easy botanical body soak is a great way to up the level on bath time.  With just a few simple ingredients and mixing you will be ready to jump in the tub in no time. Of course you could always give it as a gift, but we think you'll want to keep this one for yourself!

glass jar
epsom or himalayan salt
fine ground epsom soak
dried powder milk
fragrance oil
bowl & spoon


This recipe will fill up one 4oz container.  In a bowl mix 2tbs epsom/himalyan salt, 3tbs ground epsom soak & 3tsp of your dried milk (we usually use coconut or goats milk).  Next add your fragrance - we used this company they are a fine & essential oil blend- but if you are using pure essential oils use 5-6 drops and add more if needed for a stronger smell, give it a good mix and if you'd like add in some dried or fresh botanicals, we think this is the fun part!  Some of our favorites are lavender, chamomile, roses and rosemary.  Whatever suits your fancy!


Its that easy.. we're not joking. Package it up into your container and add a scoop or two into your water.  The salt preserves, but because of the milk we've noticed that it has a shelf life of about 3 months.  

We have a feeling you'll be making this for the rest of the season, so enjoy those baths! xx
