Working Designer Wednesday

Some of my favorites this week…

1. Great vases from Chive

product_FLUTE_lg chive inc

1835 chive

CUSMCH-2T chive

2. Over the past 6 months, I’ve heard lots of rumbling about how fed up and tired of mason jar arrangements many of you designers have become…so I had to smile at this blog post by Sharon at En Masse Flowers

3. Love this interview with Susanne (The Blue Carrot) at Flowerona

4. The way Rachel Ashwell brings out the natural beauty of flowers with her ultra-feminine style and passion for romantic simplicity…
