These floral paintings are by Nashville based artist Rebekka Seale. It appears they are part of a series, one painting for each month of 2013. I am excited to see the rest as the year goes by.
If I had too much money to know what to do with, this is the kind of thing I would spend it on: hand painted chinoiserie wallpaper. The amazing images featured here are by de Gournay.
These photographs are by prolific prop stylist Dietlind Wolf, based in Hamburg Germany. Her blog is pure inspiration featuring food, product as well as floral styling. Have to admit that food styling usually leaves me cold, but I am loving her work. Her portfolio is incredibly diverse, whilst showing great restraint within each series. There is much, much more to be seen on the Dietlind Wolf website, you could easily get lost in the imagery for hours.
Here are our final photographs from RHS Hampton Court Flower Show. The lovely people at Badger beer were serving samples of their delicious range (Hopping Hare, a fave). Their garden and beer fountains were lovely, but jam packed with people, so no photos. Excellent sign though.
I love wildflower meadows…
The Garlic Farm‘s exhibit was my favourite in the Growing for Taste marquee.
Pennard Plants vegetable display.
Lovely Sussex hens at the Flyte so Fancy exhibit.
Rose of the year, You’re Beautiful.
Some amazing work by silversmith Maya Selway which beautifully alludes to the shape of a vase.
Maya says about her work:
“I am influenced by the impermanent nature of the objects that surround us and by the cycles of change that these objects go through. Integral to this is the Japanese philosophy of Wabi-Sabi that acknowledges that; nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect”.
