Valuing flower happiness in London: In the smallest of the smallest vintage designs

Beloved Flower Lover,

“May I have that design?”, she said, pointing to a vintage teacup with flowers in it.

“It’s our oddments”, we replied.

She looked hopeful, wide eyed, with a tiny smile.

“Perhaps you can do this yourself?” gentleness flowed between us, throughout our universe…more gentle than the softest warmest smile you could imagine

Her body became noticeably more comfortable. She cooed in response…

“Can you blame me for wanting something to hold onto, something that reminds me of the peaceful unaffected naturalness of life”…

Our body lanuguage reciprocated…even more comfortable than the textures of soft leaves we had been playing with.

“You already know this” We giggled

“Yes I do”

She giggled even more- in  a gentle fashion, “Oddly I was feeling a little down and just wanted something low key to  remind me to feel at peace with myself. I have so much to  give thanks for right now. My daughter’s passing her exams so we can stop paying fees, us all moving home at last after living with my parents for all this time, and his recovery from his heart attack”.

“I just want something small to remind me to nourish my peace. To remind me to die to my fears. That things will turn out fine even when they look pear shaped.  I do not want to forget to take good care of my peaceful place in the smallest of things as I get all my big material successes.”

“That’s fair cop we said, caring for your peace is where it’s at ”

About Thelondonflowerlover

Welcome to The London Flower Lover. We are florists who create floral collections to tell your real life story. With colour and texture, we take floristry into an entirely new direction based on the challenges and joys of your life. Offering what we call 'heart based floristry' we use style, fashion, and life situations and merge them with heart based lifestyle support. This inspiring blend creates so much more for those who love flowers. Using flowers in the traditional way of course, but always using flowers to open up a floralicious conversation about relationships of all kinds. We are a sort of work in progress of compassionately confirming how we are already on the inside, the love we want to see out in the world. That is mission of The London Flower Lover. So saying yes to recognising that is at the heart of this blog and using flowers to honour that inner world is how we use the beauty of giving and receiving flowers. This blog is your blog. It's as much about cultivating your heart, as it is about enjoying the physical beauty of flowers. It offers story, poems and video to reflect the life you actually live whilst showing beautifully inspiring collections of flower designs. Hand-tied bouquets, arrangements and more. All this with sought after tips from well established experts on how to keep a happy heart. This is what makes The London Flower Lover unique and magical. Yes, and that's how we make the difference that we do. When life looks, feels, or sounds challenging, we offer a sanctuary that you may dip into. A well of refreshment and strength that you may draw from. Sharing what others have found to be successful ways of being happy in the face of challenges, whilst letting flowers do the talking when we have no other way to interpret what is going on. Use flowers to help you re-discover, reveal and remember how you can still be despite challenges. Use flowers to celebrate and to embody the possibility of your heart felt desire, fulfilled. Use flowers in your life, to remind you of the beauty of your life. Use The London Flower Lover today. We invite you to stay curious in this floral universe as you explore the love in the heart.

    Flowers can definitely sooth and bring peace. So I brought some more today. No idea what they were though. It was a nice looking floral spray
