"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly. What is essential is invisible to the eyes."
-- Antoine de St.-Exupéry, early 20th century philosopher and author of "The Little Prince"
Welcome! ♥ I've just reopened my WeddingFlowerShop booth on Bonanza for the 2014 wedding season and will be adding lots more new designs of silk keepsake wedding bouquets, as well as button bouquets, hair accessories, boutonnieres and corsages, wreaths and more.
When not designing flowers, I'm an interfaith minister with a Harvard degree and a floral design diploma who spent 13 years in Europe as a translator. My classic florals reflect the beautiful gardens of France, Germany, Austria, Holland, Italy, and England I visited there, as well as over 20 years of floral design experience.
I'm also a holistic health educator concerned with recycling and energy issues. Once manufactured and shipped, silk florals will last for years, using a fraction of fresh flower energy costs and pesticides. For fresh flowers, look first at your local farmers' market and/or buy organic plants and flowers for celebrations.
All net proceeds are DONATED to a variety of animal rescue/rights and environmental organizations; your purchase here will be transformed into acts of compassion and wisdom. Visit me on Etsy at ParisRain and WeddingFlowerShop for lots of good feedback. I'm also here on Bonanza with my MermaidsTreasure booth for small gifts and my new ParisRain booth for European-inspired vintage and handmade items.
Please don't use balloons, metals, glass, and plastics in your outdoor celebrations that will harm wildlife if you leave them behind. Teach your children to tread lightly on this planet, i.e. to reduce, reuse, and recycle, so that the magnificent creatures of today don't become the mythological creatures of tomorrow.
Deep Peace of the Shining Stars to you (a Celtic blessing),
