I had the chance to visit the de Young Museum in San Francisco a few days ago and caught their annual Bouquets to Art exhibit. Floral artists are paired with a work of art that is meant to inspire their arrangements. There were some incredible pieces – here are just a few I found noteworthy. Love the rosey-twiggy bird!
More than anything this post is about capturing a moment in time, and one that is soon to change. I walked into my 10-year old son’s room the other day and wanted to capture the feeling of his room, knowing that the teen years are fast approaching. And when that happens, who knows, I may not even be allowed into his room at all!
I am dedicating this blog entry to singing the praises of Holly Pruett. Holly Pruett does with words and ritual what I do with fabric. As a Life-Cycle Celebrant she stitches together the pieces of a person’s life story with their values, beliefs, and traditions. Holly works with her clients to create and officiate unique, personal ceremonies commemorating life’s major life events – from weddings to funerals and everything in between. Please visit her website www.hollypruettcelebrant.com to learn more about her business and her craft.
