My keys to my world! Wheeeeeeee!

Today something special came in the post
The keys to my Paris, take a peek down at the video on the bottom
of my blog and you will understand my glee.

The Apartment in Paris where my daughter and I are staying in three weeks - eek!, has lovely old fashioned ideas.
They post you your keys in any part of the world.
I was a little worried as I hadn't seen them in the post box.
I was thinking about plan B, which is think is to try and communicate with a French only speaking Housekeeper.
That would have been interesting.
But...last night they were sitting waiting for me in the letter box. I squealed when I saw them. I think it's only me that gets it - maybe you would too.
In 1 week and 6 days we are winging our way on holiday - first to London, then Amsterdam, then Paris, - the South of France and Italy- Rome, Florence, and Venice. Writing it makes it a little more real. I really can't believe it. My daughter is coming with me.  5 weeks of bliss.

Pure pleasure

Last weekend I had the pleasure of doing a wedding for a fellow florist.
We followed her ideas to the letter and it was pure pleasure.
She created master pieces out of the bouquets - a gift for her daughter, who was just a vision of loveliness with a heart to match.
We dealt with Diva's at the venue but in the end...
Everyone was happy.
My first huge wedding.
So Proud


A wonderful wedding has all the ingredients for a wonderful marriage
Made with love
Isn't she lovely?
The Bridesmaid's had perfectly matched beads in their bouquets


Picture perfect
We spent all day making these - vandela roses, privet berry, freesia, and mini roses
Happy

My crowning glory - this one I am very proud of!

Keeping Up with the technos













Look what I got! I thought I needed an upgrade of my computer and treated myself to a new toy.
It's very cool and now I can check on you where ever I am! You see I am travelling soon, so now I can look very important tapping away on my very cool laptop. I am by no means the computer nerd. It is very much a learn as you go basis but this will be great to up load photos of our travels. I love my very computer savvy son, I just point him in the direction of the box and waalaa it is all set to go. I know I am awfully behind the times but now I am caught up!
It takes me a while sometimes. ...

Coming soon...photos of a lovely wedding. I have been meaning to update all week.
