Would you believe that I did not get one picture of any of us ladies? We had some incredible talented ladies in town this weekend and the only (and very few) photos I snapped were of spaces or things...no people! Geesh!
I met Holly last summer when I headed down to Texas to take one of her creative classes. I have followed Holly for years and it was so inspiring, and such an honor to meet her! Well, we became buddies and lots of emails and texts later, she decided to come up and offer one of her creative classes in McMinnville!
My job was to take care of flowers and food and to have a place to host her.....
I planted this huge and really cool tray with a combination of fake hyacinth bulbs and live primroses and daffodils. We sell the hyacinth bulbs at the shop-they look so realistic! They will last for years and they don't have the scent, which can be a bit overwhelming for some. The primroses and daffodils were purchased at the grocery store. I nestled the bulbs in, just where I wanted them (still in the pots) and topped everything with moss. Easy peasy!
Of course I didn't snap any photos of the food because I never seem to have enough time to get things prepared and take pictures!
My dear hubby built this beautiful table, just for our workshop space. I absolutely love it!! It comfortable seats 12 and it has extra meaning to me because he built it! He also finished the upstairs space at 2:30am the night before we were setting everything up! He is a keeper I tell ya! I will do another post soon on the details of the upstairs space ;-)
Melaine of My Sweet Savannah joined Holly in Portland and those two talented ladies stayed at the cottage. It was such a treat to meet Melaine, she is a sweet one Holly and I were already scheming as to how we could get Melaine to host a sign making workshop and we would come help her!
Truly a treat and a blessing to meet so many fantastic and talented ladies! Most of these photos are from Melaine, she was kind enough to share as I never seem to make the time to take pictures!
Have a great week and I will be back soon with more pictures and details of the upstairs workshop space!
