We leave Friday out of town for almost a week, so I’m working real hard to prep as much as I can for next month’s pre sale and shop update. I’m really considering using this color combination again! It’s seriously one of my favorites! Would you like to see this combo next month?
We didn’t know .... That we could love anything as much as fresh flowers but y’all, these dried beauties have us crushing, hard. You know we’re always preaching about the value of flowers to your life and soul. It just makes us sad when we think of flowers as a luxury but can totally justify $5 coffee and $4 donuts (and not hating on good coffee/donuts, we make the justification ALL THE TIME). It’s just our culture, we weren’t raised thinking flowers should be part of the norm. Every time we’re out with Birdie somebody comments that she looks so European, something that you see on street corners everywhere. Flowers are an everyday item in other parts of the world. These beautiful dried flowers seem to be bridging the gap cause hey, we are Americans so spending isn’t our issue 🤪, it’s just that justification piece that’s tricky. Dried flowers last indefinitely - Bingo!! No water, no upkeep, nothing but sheer enjoyment. So, now, building your own bouquet comes with much less pressure cause your flowers won’t die in a week or so. And, the textures of the blooms and pods and grasses, etc are 💕💕. We will be offering a couple of styles of dried bouquets for delivery (shipping coming too once we figure out how to do that carefully) and of course Birdie will be loaded to the gills (well that’s a fish term) so loaded to the wings I guess with all of this loveliness so that you can now enjoy flowers all over your home! PS. Fresh flowers will still and always be available for delivery and at certain times on Birdie too cause: “We must have flowers, always and always”.

Running your own business never stops, it's a lot like having a child. You worry about it a lot, there's no guide to getting it right and it means the world to you. It's exhausting and you feel like giving up at times, but it's so rewarding and inspiring too. You make so many mistakes, you doubt yourself every day but feel incredibly grateful to have it in your life every day too! This weekend was the most exhausting weekend yet with my first ever proper photo shoot on Saturday and a market in Exeter on Sunday, but it was also one of the most exciting and happy weekends too. I've had a dream since I started These Two Hands of setting up a home in a field to photograph my designs and bring the inside outdoors as my collection is all about bringing nature into your home. And on Saturday it came true! When I saw the beautiful outdoor lifestyle shots by Bristol photographer @gem_hicks_photography, I knew she would be the perfect person to work with and we had such a great day! She was so excited about all the designs, about the meadow we were in and about the way the light hit the leaves. She even went off on a nature forage for the table and came back with beautiful wild carrot and other seedheads. I love that I get to work with such brilliant people and that I've met such a great community of creatives over the past 2 years, on here and in real life! Every muscle in my body hurts from lugging heavy furniture into a field, but it was definitely worth it! I can't wait to share these shots and my new autumn collection with you all. It launches at 8.50am on 23rd September, Autumn Equinox! #inspiredbynature#creativecommunity#bringingoutdoorsin#natureinthehome#meadowlove#autumnlight#smallbusiness#dowhatyoulove#naturebackdrop#perfectday#autumnmagic#autumnismyfavouriteseason
I love being a mum, the amount of times I want to squish Arlo in a day is uncountable but God its hard! The decisions we have to make around what's best for them and for us as a team is constant and I spend so much time doubting my choices. I guess that's all part and parcel of being a parent and learning how to dance the dance, and God I can't wait to learn more of the steps ❤️
