California Citrus, et al







We taught a fun Little Flower School class last week over at Nicolette's studio. A coupla repeat students (always fun because I can be harder on them) (joking!)... Also got to meet some new folks, including Nina who owns Bakeri in Williamsburg. So inspiring getting to know a little about her business...have you ever been there? It's my favorite spot ever for a coffee, especially the small nook towards the back garden.

Speaking of baking, I've been getting all my holiday ducks in a row and did a little experimenting in the kitchen today...LINZER COOKIES! You like them? Ever had a real good one? Working on a post with a recipe for you tomorrow.

Lastly - I mentioned that 2011 is bringing lots of good travel tidings... Nicolette and I are off to CALIFORNIA to do some research and flower classes in LA and SanFransisco the second week of March. Details coming down the pipe line in the next few days - I'm so excited I can barely stand it...

AND FINALLY! here's that Saipua Bazaar mix tape for you - a lil something to wrap prezzies to perhaps?

San Francisco?!? But do I have to be cool? Can I be a middle-aged mom? Or is it for actual florists?

haha, I was expecting some classic Christmas carol and cranked up the volume. Surpise, the first song Hello Good Morning and was pumping. This really puts me in the mood to dance around.
