People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us. ~Iris Murdoch


Hi! My name is Leigh. As you can probably tell, I have a slight obsession with flowers. I grew up doodling flowers on textbooks, on notebooks, on scraps on paper… everywhere. I also grew up watching my wonderful mom craft anything and everything from the most beautiful smocked dresses to handmade cards to gorgeous handmade jewelry (and many other crafts just too numerous to mention). I myself started with those little plastic embroidery canvas kits (remember those? with the huge plastic needles and plastic snap-in frames?), moved onto knitting, drawing, embroidery... and the list goes on.

Maybe because I lack the proverbial green thumb, I've grown to craft everything…

Hi! My name is Leigh. As you can probably tell, I have a slight obsession with flowers. I grew up doodling flowers on textbooks, on notebooks, on scraps on paper… everywhere. I also grew up watching my wonderful mom craft anything and everything from the most beautiful smocked dresses to handmade cards to gorgeous handmade jewelry (and many other crafts just too numerous to mention).

Maybe because I lack the proverbial green thumb, I've grown to craft everything flower-related. My little posy girl designs reflect my whimsical take on nature, combining fun, cheerful colors with my love of flowers and trees. My need to surround myself with color extends to my wool felt posy accessories, which are the perfect marriage of my love of hand stitching and my love of colorful flowers.

I am currently a stay-at-home mom to two fantastic kids. The name “little pink posies” was inspired by my daughter, who is known around our house as “little miss pinkie.” The child was simply born to wear pink. In addition to providing me a creative outlet, little pink posies is also allowing me to fulfill my desire to do a little something a something for me… to re-capture that spirit of independence that becomes a little blurry when you devote your life to caring for your family. The journey to getting the shop up and running has been long (although I opened shop in October 2007, I did not begin listing until late April 2008!), but very fulfilling. Enjoy your stay in my colorful little corner of Etsy, and feel free to drop me a line! I'd love to hear from you. :)
