BOTANICALS





Good Lord you guys.....I gotta tell ya my computer is giving me hives.  I spent all week curating my ORC post so it was perfect.  I kept editing and adding so I could tell the story with interest.

I was excited to get up Wednesday morning and all I had to do was push "publish" right?  Well 5 seconds later I get an email from Linda [girl is on it] telling me to add the link list for everyone else.

I am scratching my head as I view my post and realize in shock that it had published my first draft.  WTH....is this a cruel joke?  Am I being "punked"?

Crikey I had to edit it as quickly as I could and get it back out there plus I had somewhere to be [which is why I did it early].

Life can be tricky sometimes huh?

When I posted the picture of those botanicals many of you were like "where can I get them?"  Since they were purchased about 7 years ago I did some research for you and here is what I came up with.

First I went to Ballard Designs.




I love the black background of these.....



So many good options.

OK...these aren't botanicals but they are pretty cool for impact!


Then I headed over to Art.com and lookey lookey......



I found a gob of these.....
Some of them are the exact ones that were used in my post.

  I am reminded that botanicals are classic and always will be.  Not to sound like a broken record but I have had these for 15 years and even though they aren't in my LR anymore I am still using them in my guest room.

Of course while I was browsing the Ballard site I saw a few new items that caught my eye like these velvet pillows!







I saw that Element of Style did a good post on botanicals recently.....here

And you might have noticed my new look!  I got in touch with Shari from Little Blue Deer to update my website and just decided to fluff up my blog a the same time.  She is the best!

Hope y'all have a great weekend.  I will be working on my ORC room so I can have a little something to post about next Wednesday!

I am so behind in everything:)

I love the new site! But I don't see a search box. I was just looking for your drapery hardware post.

The vry first thing I noticed was the blog header, Wow your blog looks fantastic! Love it! I am a big fan of botanicals as well and you showed some great examples. My hard drive went down a week ago so I had to get a new computer with windows 10 at first I was kicking and screaming and now I am fine, but computer troubles are the pits! Have a good day and hope you catch up, but busy in this business is good. I am off to our new house today to take a few things before the BIG move.

I just sent out a post with a typo in the title...when I corrected it, all the email folks got a bad link to a page that doesn't exist. Just when I think I am getting the hang of things. Love all your sources for the botanicals...thank you.

I like the new look! I keep hearing myself say "crikey" and attribute it to you. :) Botanical prints are such a classic. In fact, I just recommended them to a client. Thanks for these links, you just made my job a whole lot easier!

Those prints are classic but never fail to impress. I also love botanical designs and they seem to fit in different areas of a house. Thanks for sharing!

My mom did something similar with all the leaves in her garden. She picked and then pressed and dried them and about a year later she framed them. She did it on white paper and filled out cards to put in the frames with the scientific name and the used name and a few other facts. She still has them.
