A perfect place of Victoriana and Nature

A 1906 country store was rescued to now house all sort of whim of nature in a time gone by. As an artist, I follow the designs of nature. As a floragraphist, I create using the Victorian language of flowers & objects. As an environmentalist, I use eco-organic and local grown flowers, found bits, and upcycled finds. As an animal advocate, I donate a percent of all sales for their benefit.

A florist for over 20 years, and the only green certified for the past 10; I love what I do and tend to see & do things with heart. I admit, I give away more profit than I should, but I love animals and trees more.

The store is a wonderful escape if you are ever in the area. Two floors of rooms filled with flowers in all forms, antiques, vintage ribbons, butterflies, animals and it goes on and on. My rescued racer, Willow the greyhound is my "co-owner" and inspiration, along with every living fauna & flora.

Willow's take on everything in the world can be seen at her blog link in my resources-because the world really is hers.
Enjoy life always, Lynn

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I love to personalize my designs whether with the traditional year of anniversary or a special message from the Language of Flowers

Sizing details

Dried flower designs can be hard to measure since they are not uniform so I add the approximate size looking down, across, and around them.

Care instructions

Dried flowers will last for years with just a little care. Dusting can be done with a hair blower or real feather duster. They should not be kept near sunny areas as their color will eventually fade.
