In the language and meanings of flowers Daffodils represent: Regard, rebirth, new beginnings, unrequited love, you're the only one, chivalry and eternal life.
Arranging Daffodils: Cut at least 1/2 " off and at a 45 degree angle for maximum water absorbtion. After cutting place in water. Do not add with other flowers for a few hours. Daffodls exude a clear, sticky sap that is harmful to other flowers.
I just discoved textile designer, Sheri Lynn Wood and her explosive eye popping quilts. I love the color and their curvy motion. Sheri's design company is called Dainty Time Quilts and is just up the road on Treasure Island.
Sheri's modern quilts are improvisational and made without a pre-determined pattern. Her quilts are all about line, color, shape and the rhythm of attention. Machine pieced, hand quilted and made with hand dyed cotton fabrics.
With a Moroccan mother and French father, Younes Duret has always lived between two countries. Casablanca is the cradle of his childhood, Paris is the city where he studied design, and Marrakech is the one where he founded his design agency.
Younes brings cultures closer which seem to be so divergent and creates a new borderless style. He aims to repair perceived ideas and prejudices by shifting objects and borrowing humorous and existing graphics. It is therefore difficult to attempt to associate his creations from one country more then another.
Just add water to a glass bowl from the kitchen or a pedistal bowl then toss a few flowers in. Add either a floating or a votive candles. I often do this with the little blossoms that are left over after arranging flowers.
