first day in the studio

it still needs quite a bit of work- but it was so great to spread out in our new space this morning!

busy bees

we have been super busy the past few days- flowers, packing birch orders, setting up the studio, and this super fun project for the sf decorator showcase. we worked with nicole hollis design to make these specimen-like arrangements for a room with a "cabinet of curiosity" theme. nicole supplied us with three large glass vessels and we went wild! the house is open to the public and is pretty breathtaking, especially the roof garden. (tickets cost $30 and the proceeds benefit sf university high school)
**also-we didn't get a photo to do it justice, but one of our favorite gals in the whole world created a spectacular (and massive) floral sculpture in the room, suspended from the ceiling and hanging down into the stairwell. amazing yedda.

up your nose with a rubber hose

it was nice and warm this afternoon- perfect for hosing out a grimy garage workspace!

the wealth of wood

i just added some vintage tea towels into the shop...including my favorite, the wealth of wood. i think some of them are almost too nice to use- they would look beautiful framed.

"visit us" at rare device

we will have a fresh arrangement on display at rare device while we are getting the word out about studio choo! today we dropped off a gardeny bunch of lilac, sweet peas, and ranunculus in a felted container from papaver vert. one of our succulents bursting with orange flowers was also hanging out in the window.

dutch door press sneak peek

the lovely ladies of dutch door press, anna and mara, have their house and studio sneak peeks up on design*sponge today. i am in love with everything they do- i think the birds and blooms series is my favorite so far. anna was nice enough to include one of my prints in her sneak peek which i just added into the shop.

milk bottles

these amazing little vintage milk bottles are the inspiration for last week's dairy shoot. we just added them into the shop- available with a bright posy inside for local delivery.


lilac, narcissus, anemones, and tulips for a lovely new client who gets fresh cuts and a small desk arrangement every monday.
