Good Monday morning! I hope you relaxed and had some fun this weekend and are ready to embrace a new week.
Maybe it’s their moody, dramatic centers, but I find myself drawn to anemones for fall floral arrangements! Light, yet dark. Strong, yet delicate.
I also like that they aren’t everyone’s first pick. Sometimes it’s nice to be different. Individual. But, memorable. Funny….that sounds a lot like what I’m trying to teach my kids.
Here’s to a fabulous week….blooming and being your most beautiful, individual self!

I love anemones because they have so much personality. One of those flowers my grandmother would have spent five minutes studying and thanking God for such a gift. The dark rose rose is so beautiful too.
You always have so much inspiration here, Elizabeth.
I fell in love with this flower when I stayed at Hotel Particulier in Arles, France. Madame had large glass containers filled with anemones sitting out in the main parlor – stunning and stylish.

Anemones are so pretty, but I love even more how you've found a lesson on individuality from them. Something lovely to start the week on. Hope yours is beautiful, Elizabeth! XO

We love anemones around here and now that we're designing the new spring collection, we have bunches of them. Have you ever visited Battenfeld Anemone Farm in the Hudson Valley? It's amazing and quite unique!

They are one of my all time favorite flowers and not so easy to find….I really have to order them from the florist. The dark centers are so dramatic and mysterious.
