Are you enjoying a relaxing summer weekend? I hope so! And do your weekend plans include time in the garden? I’m not the most adept gardener myself, but I’m crazy in love with flowers and enjoy floral arranging! If, like me, this is a passion of yours, or you simply want to learn how to create your own arrangements, I’ve got a beautiful new book to share with you. It’s by my friend Kelly, who blogs at My Soulful Home, and it’s a stunning book that was just released.
“My Soulful Home ~ a year in flowers” is full of inspiration that will bring joy to your life. Each chapter overflows with information, advice, tips & tutorials. Practical advice is woven together with vivid stories in a tone that embraces the novice to experienced floral designer.
Kelly’s 12 tutorials, coinciding with the month’s of the year, can be re-created petal by petal or use them as a spring board to your own designs. You will have more than enough knowledge about flowers, floral care & design after reading the book to create just about anything with flowers.
Each page empowers you, not only with knowledge on the how & why of floral design, but on a deeper level gives you a simple way to elevate your everyday.
As Kelly says… “Don’t spend your life waiting for someone to send you flowers. Make your own arrangements”. With her book you can do just that!
To celebrate the launch of her book, Kelly is giving away a beautiful blue & white vintage tureen, a pair of her favorite floral shears and a supply of flower food. The tureen is very old and bears the chippy goodness we love.
To enter all you need to do is pop over to Kelly’s blog HERE, have a look at the collage image of arrangements at the bottom of the page. Then come back here and tell me in the comments below which one you liked best.

And now lets take a look at what some of my friends have been up to this week. Enjoy Home Style Saturdays and enjoy your weekend!!
