Explore Muddy Feet Flowers, Tied Bouquet and more!

It's no secret that one of my ultimate goals in life is to own my own shop, my own little high street boutique...a haven of beautiful things. I have folders brimming with tear sheets and sketch books loaded with notes and doodles with all the little details. I imagine this cute as a button shop with a French inspired shop front, a rattly old door with a mat for muddy feet...a stand for soggy umbrellas. I imagine rubbed down wooden floorboards layered with cosy shag piles and a resident cat!

Wood planks are good and bad in a garden like this...in muddy weather...they slide. And you can't step on the ends. But otherwise, a gorgeous garden

Lotus blossoms differ from a lily by their height off the water. Whereas lilies can rest on the water or just above, lotus can rise several feet above. As a lotus is able to emerge from muddy waters, un-spoilt and pure, it's considered to represent a wise and spiritually enlightened quality in a person; and is a very important symbol in Hinduism, Buddhism, as it was for the ancient Egyptians.

Love using old boards as a walkway in the garden. Benefits include Helping with erosion and excess moisture loss from the ground and you feet won't get muddy either. Win-win! :)

“In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it’s wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.” — Elizabeth Gilbert
