It’s a dull rainy day outside. (photo taken on a much more spring like day, earlier this week ?) But behind our red doors, our flower game is strong?. After the hugely successful workshop at the Monkey Business Themed Museum Lates . We’re still buzzing from seeing all the wonderful head dresses you made in our East End Press workshop. We’ve now got flowers and jungle vibes on the brain. You kinda need them to get you through these dull days. Come on Spring!

Someone else we know who loves a pretty flower or two, is our lovely mum! If she’s not so much the green fingered type, we have lots of flower power gifts for her this coming Mother’s Day. (Sunday March 26th – next Sunday!)
More great cards by Allihopa
Our window is currently showing off all manner of tropical goodness. We’re quite partial to a palm or cacti, not only do they look pretty, they’re relatively easy to care for. (who can kill a cacti? raises hand sheepishly ?)
If like us, you’re not so green fingered, why not fill your walls (or your mums walls) with lots of tropical plants and leaves? We love the new prints that have arrived from Hello Marilu. Areca Palm, Cheese Plant and Cacti prints beautifully screen printed in gold foil.
We also can’t get enough of the new range of bags and travel accessories by Atomic Soda. They’ve got us thinking about those balmy summer days (I’m sure we’ve maybe had one or two of those days in Scotland right? ?) Well we may not have them that often in Scotland, but why not treat your mum to this colourful collection to brighten up her day, no matter the weather.
A staff favourite is the beautiful Charlotte by And Smile. Such a colourful and inspiring lady we’d love to meet. She’s part of Viktorija’s ever expanding collection of strong ladies. A picture so full of colour, she’s sure to be at home amongst the wild flowers.
This beautiful and inspiring card by Maria Rikteryte would be the perfect card for lovely mums & special friends.
It may not be flowers but it is bright and beautiful. The new jewellery from Edinburgh based jeweller Jojo Blue Design. This unique handmade necklace is eye catching and made by layering mint coloured resin and then inlaying with vibrant acrylic design. Described as mini acrylic paintings captured within.
It’s so difficult to narrow down our collection of flowery goodness in to just one blog. Head on over to our Instagram page to see our favourite flower pics alongside the wonderful East End Press head dresses from the Museum Lates workshop
We have to end our blog on the sunniest flowers of them all, Mr Sunflower. Here he is transformed in to a super cute enamel pin, just waiting to brighten up your day on your favourite lapel. Thanks to Jo of Hello Sunshine for bringing this little guy into our lives and brightening up those grey days like today! ?
Have a Happy Weekend and a Happy St. Patricks Day to all our lovely Irish Friends. ?
