There are cozy little places, small niches around my home that are just some of my favorite spots. This little vignette in my kitchen is just one of those places. The small rooster lamp was a housewarming gift from my sister, and the "Angel Blessings" sign was a birthday gift from a friend who knows my love of collecting angels. The large pub clock and the sunflower arrangement are treasures I brought home from my store along with the basket of cinnamon scented pine cones, another favorite for this time of year!
My passion for flowers began as a little girl when my grandmother inspired me to plant my first flower garden. I remember her growing breathtaking zinnias in huge old tomato cans sitting on her porch. She didn't have money for decorative planters, so she just used her imagination. I would love to have those old vintage cans with zinnias in glorious colors spilling from them. That passion for flowers and designing with them has followed me my entire life, and eventually was the inspiration behind starting my own business and opening a flower shop 10 years ago when Meadowsweet was born. Today, my days are spent creating beautiful floral arrangements and wreaths, and helping others beautify their homes on the North Shore of Long Island where I live
