I often wish I had followed a more arty,crafty, designer type route through my working life.
I did love the " littlies" and they indeed taught me so much. And I like to think there are some scampish boys in particular who had a happier time in school by meeting me.
To be honest I taught at a time when creativity,expression and artistic talents were encouraged.
So I count my lucky stars for that.
And, looking on the positive, retirement has allowed me to make friends with my creative side all over again.
Well, I have a lifelong friend and her son is getting married in August and they have asked me to do the flowers.
I was so happy to say yes.
I feel quite confident after my first forray into wedding flowers for my nieces wedding when I was thrilled to do those too.
I wrote a post about it here
My niece looked so beautiful and I loved the simple hand held boquet she had asked for.
My very favourite picture from that day was of my great niece who was a bridesmaid carrying the brides posy as she wanted the big one!
So tomorrow another "soon to be bride" and I are going to be talking flowers. Perfect.
My love affair with Pinterest is ongoing and there are some beautiful ideas for wedding flowers there too.
