Enjoy the Beauty of May Flowers!! Happy Mother’s Day Weekend!!
Welcome back to my Guest Blog – by MMK. Today we Grace your Home and Style with this springtime month of May Birthstone – Gemstone Emerald! Everyone always enjoys a bit of GREEN and Fleurs galore!
Let’s celebrate May’s symbol of rebirth and love with all things GREEN!! There is always time to select fresh flowers or flowering plant for Mom and those who have mothered you!! Vases and cachepots of every shape and size add interest, character, a bit of your own personality and even transport us all over the world. Some are sculpture – art simply on their own. Memories of a trip, of childhood, our heritage…are wonderful to relive or be reminded of the love who gave us such a perfect gift!!
The Finnish Artist Alvar Aalto’s Collection is classic…perfect for the mid-century modern design lover, minimalist and today’s Bride and Groom. This classic, designed in 1936, brings new meaning to “Antique” It marries beautifully with traditional decors as well. Art Glass and Crystal are sooo beautiful. Some vessels have no need for flowers at all! Their artistic beauty is complete! I have a major passion for them…and have collected them always. My Museum background and Italian heritage ultimately influence my love of Art in all forms. Think Murano, Baccarat, Lalique, Kosta Boda…on and on…
Incredible Orchid blossom notecards from Artist and Mother Paula Skene’s brilliant and beautiful collections. Handcrafted in the San Francisco Bay Area, each is embossed using a hand-carved brass printing plate! Paula and I worked together over many years. Her talented son joined with pride!! It seems fitting this Mother’s Day weekend to also feature Beautiful designs by Aerin Lauder…the very chic and talented granddaughter of the Famed Beauty maven Estée Lauder – beloved the world over.
MMK Collections: French Pitcher, Green Cabbage Ceramics, Bamboo, Wicker and Rattan. Vintage Green Wedgwood and Baccarat Crystal.
As you may know, I love Real – Natural – Genuine and Antique! So not a fan of FAUX!! Of course, caring for plants sometimes is a bit much – yet Mother Earth and Nature still call! Green and plants seem to give life to a room. You might enjoy these Boxwood Topiaries and even dried blooms! They are luscious, charming solutions and gracious additions, literally for any room! You can always enjoy a bit of GREEN!
These are from natural green boxwood and have a special treatment to retain their soft, glossy, color and texture. Problem solved!! Preserved Boxwood Topiary from Ballard Designs. You might also enjoy the handmade & painted single blossoms from Bunny Williams Collection inspired for antique sculptures.
Until next Saturday… Enjoy a lovely Mother’s Day Weekend and the luscious green beauty of May’s Flowers!!
