We are headed out for the last bit of traveling on our book tour tomorrow- we are super excited to visit Portland and Seattle! Sign up for the events right here. We won't be doing any delivery orders this week for Mother's Day...BUT...we are super duper excited to have our lovely assistants making bouquets at the Heath Ceramics Open Studio weekend in Sausalito from 12-3pm. Maybe bring your favorite Mom over to the sale and let her pick out a beautiful Heath vessel (at 15% off!) and the girls will fill it with flowers? Maybe pick up a signed copy of our book and take a tour of the Heath factory? Sounds like fun to us!
So we made a book last year. It was a lot of work and we didn't know what we were doing when we started. We worked in a crowded garage with surfaces that were too small, crooked backdrops, a giant plastic windbreak that whipped violently in the South City wind. Every week for months. But we had awesome flowers and an AMAZING photographer and we turned all those things into a book we are very proud of. We pretty much fell in love with Paige Green and could never have made our book without her. Her personality is as beautiful as her photography.
SO! We just found out she is teaching a workshop this summer! If you are interested in learning about photography and want to spend a weekend camping on an awesome farm in Petaluma, YOU MUST GO. Visit the website for more information and to sign up. Tell em' the Choo's sent ya!
It was a chilly morning in the Bay Area, but we bundled up and headed to Petaluma for a rose pruning class at Garden Valley yesterday. We learned so much from the lovely Fallon; her passion and excitement for roses was contagious. I don't have any plants of my own but my mother-in-law has a nice collection and we'll be adding a few beautiful new varieties to her garden- maybe some special blooms will go to our summer brides!
