Pressed flowers... and a giveaway...

22 Aug 2014






Elizabeth and I have really enjoyed pressing flowers this Summer, picking them from the garden, or when out and about. Elizabeth received a press for her birthday last year and she still hadn't got around to using it. So this Summer, we dug it out of her crafty drawer and made sure we filled it up with some pretty blooms.

We have enjoyed using this little wild flowers guide too, Identifying and learning the names of the flowers we find. The illustrations are so sweet and we like the spaces where you can either draw or stick in finds from different seasons. We'll definitely be adding more flowers over Autumn and winter too!




I have another Little Guide to Wild Flowers book to giveaway, and also this sweet little flower press with tin and flower scissors - perfect for taking out and about!

The giveaway ends on the 2nd September and I am happy to post worldwide. Good Luck! x

Congratulations Heather! If you could email me your address and I'll pop them in the post to you.
