- Always match your snood to your ribbon .... . The second 'right big wreath' of the week, again gracefully carried by @pickedatdawn having been made expertly by @painterlyandblooms . A year ago Carol came for a one to one class. I knew then that she was definitely going to make a great career out of 'doing the flowers' (not least because former nurses seem always to make good florists don't they?). Since then she's been back to the small corner a few times to see some of the special guest stars we've had here:@lamusadelasflores , @hedgerow , @mossandstoneuk , @snug_gallery , @sarahmasonphotouk . Added to that she took my advice to go on lots of courses of those whose work she admired. I'm a little envious of that list: @gandgorgeousflowers , @the_blue_carrot , @thegardengateflowerco. And, I know there are a couple more on her wish list (and mine). After a summer doing weddings she's now about to start her first classes soon -doing the wreaths of course πŸ˜€. Her website is about to be launched and I was lucky enough to have a sneak preview of the new logo which is perfect for a florist who also grows fine flowers and has a 'painterly' background. I've said it before but I do love to see how new flowery folk start their businesses and grow them. There is definitely a new rose out there. . . #ourwreathlove

- Team Mascot..... Around this time last year I suggested to Mrs B we should get a team dog. She said no. Around this time last year our lovely friend Lynne (@brontecountrywalks), she who is two parts human and eight parts actual angel, went to the dog pound in Keighley and rescued a small dog with a pink nose and eye. Here we are 12 months later, with a characterful little thing who bears no resemblance to the mascot I had in mind. I think life might have improved slightly for Molly who loves nothing more than to sit on the knees of every guest we have in the kitchen....after she has searched their bags for food! Today she'll be in the kitchen watching Mrs B cook, which is pretty much her favourite pass time (unless there's a beach). I often think life is much simpler as a dog. It's definitely much better with one πŸ˜„. . . . #terriersofinstagram , #rescuedog , #jackrussellstyle

- Winter tables...... . The Booths catalogue is finally out, Nigel Slater is by the beside waiting for me to recreate all that is between page 130 and 145 ( the cake section πŸ˜€) and there are candles in all sorts of muted colours. There may be a selection of new deep blue napkins too. And so, with thoughts now turning to table presentation (or tablescaping as they call it on here- a word incidentally that I'm sure I made up in 1995) I was rather chuffed last night to hear that a very special plate selection is to be made available. Oh yes indeed, this festive season we are likely to be seen scoffing our mince pies (those delicate ones made by Mrs B) off original @jillshaddock plates . Life doesn't get any better than that! My mother would surely save them for best, which would mean they'd never get used for at least 20 years, but, we will give them their first test in a couple of weeks time at the Winter's Tale class, in which we hope to be using a few more items lovingly created by the supremely talented Miss Shaddock. Now....I'd better add glacΓ© cherries to the shopping list πŸ€—. . . . #awinterstale , #snuggallery, #ceramics, #embracingtheseasons , #smallcornerofyorkshire , #aquietstyle_flowers

- Picked up after lunch ....... . When I jokingly advertised the position of Wreath Wrangler on here last week I didn't quite bargain on anyone applying for the job. After long deliberations, and much sifting, the best candidate was Suzie from @pickedatdawn , a woman with strength, humour, much kindness, a gorgeous smile and of course a great northern accent. I think you'll agree she is a natural. And, talking of natural, it doesn't get any better than this fabulous, foliage filled wreath made by @fleurchicfloraldesign adorned with Eau de Nil velvet ...phwoar. Thankful for a couple of hours of good light yesterday (we were lucky with the weather weren't we 🀣). Should I start to complain about wreaths over the next few weeks I'll try and remind myself of a couple of great days spent with @mossandstoneuk and our Wreath Encounters . . . #ourwreathlove , #smallcornerofyorkshire

- Bits of fluff...... And so it seems that if you combine the 'good laster' Ageratina Altissima ( which as you can see top left has gone very fluffy) with the never ending Chrysanthemums, Jasmine and the little bits of hydrangea you dried last year, you don't have to do another photo this Sunday because the whole arrangement is still there!! I reckon it could get into the Chatsworth Christmas this year in the Miss Havisham room 🀣. Now, talking of fluff, I'd better go off to clean the house for some VIP guests later on. If only I had Hilda Ogden's turban and @snug_gallery's feather duster . . . . #simplyweekend , #mystories , #doingtheflowers (and the dusting 🀣), #fallflorals , #chrysanthemumappreciationsociety , #dsfloral , #flowersandotherstories , #underthefloralspell , #aquietstyle_flowers

- Pink! Inspired by a few good sunsets this week, sadly we have nothing in sky blue. Today we have Christian coming for his first foray into flower fettling. Let's hope he likes pink. These beauties, and more, from @therealflowercotrade whose new website is just a bit too easy to use! It's another glorious cold and sunny day here in the Pendle Valley ( yep, we've changed Happy Valleys this week) and I hope you all manage to get out and kick some leaves whilst we make bouquets πŸ’. . . . #realflowersoftheseason , #roses, #inspiredbypetals , #aquietstyle_flowers , #aquietstyle

- Snug....my favourite word. Snuggle down....my favourite thing to do. This winter, in Yorkshire, we have Simply Snug-A Winter's Tale. Back in the spring we teamed up with our pal Ed from @snug_gallery for two superb days of flowers, photography made simple, and top tips on immediate use of imagery for social media. We had such a good time we decided to do something similar -but with a twist- for Winter. On 27th November at Simply Towers 4 guests are invited to join us for a day of creating Winter themed floral centrepieces in specially made @jillshaddock vessels , a low light photo shoot during which Ed will provide DSLR advice and tuition and, some sensational styling from a surprise visitor who creates magic with scenes involving flowers. We'll share our thoughts and theories about social media and other aspects of our business throughout. As darkness falls we'll end our day with a delicious fireside feast, lovingly created by Mrs B. So.....if you don't yet have your Christmas cards, this could be the day you make your own ( and no glitter or glue is needed πŸ˜€). Places are limited to 4, so that we can all see the fire, and there are two people who already have their chairs. Contact me by a message on here or by following the link in my profile for further details.

- Back to the woodshed.... Yesterday I spent a superb day in the company of about 200 other flower fettlers at the @flowersfromthefarm conference in Edinburgh- set in the veterinary school where my childhood hero James Herriot hung out. I learnt all about not digging, re-assessing my business every 6 months, planting more perennials and creating large sculptural floral installations. All finished off with a fine Scottish gin in the pub next door (The Royal Dick- I kid you not!). If anyone ever asks why I pay Β£75 each year to be a member, this is the reason why....as well as access to some of the finest flowers in the country too. Thank you @millpondflowerfarm for sorting us all out. Today I'm back to the small corner to get it ready for the winter workshops starting next week. I wonder if Roger will let me have fairy lights inside the woodshed? πŸ€— . . . #flowersandotherstories , #britishflowers , #flowerfriends

- My Stories and other ramblings..... I'm often asked if doing My Stories is worth it and I always say I just do it so that my mother knows what I'm up to (saves a fortune on the phone). But there are other benefits. Last week a photo of a windmill provoked an immediate response from my pal @hedgerow, thus: "You're in Cley aren't you? It's pronounced like pie and there's a great pottery". Pie and pottery, it doesn't get much better. And so, 6 soup bowls, 4 tactile new mugs and a beautiful celadon porcelain bowl later and I'm singing the praises of my pal Rachael and of course the power of Instagram. Here is said new bowl. It feels lovely. Hope you enjoy a day of pottering yourselves today. I'm pootling up to Edinburgh for the flower growers convention and I've no doubt my pal Rachael might let me go to a bonfire on the beach tonight too. I met her on here years ago. Funny old world. . . . #simplyweekend , #mystories , #doingtheflowers , #fallflorals , #chrysanthemumappreciationsociety , #dsfloral , #aquietstyle_flowers , #flowersandotherstories , #underthefloralspell
