All about Flori

And They’re Off!

Carol and Dan’s wedding, on a bright, sunny day in June 2017, was really out of this world. I loved their wedding so much.

A cottage of my own

I think we all need a little space that is all of our own whether it is a corner in your house or apartment or a room of your own.  I feel fortunate that I have 120 square feet dedicated to what I love; flowers, books and tea.  It’s small but I have a workspace […]
