Floral arrangements are designed and assembled pairing interesting containers with a range of various floral elements from traditional to unusual. Wall pockets in metal and pottery are offered filled with florals or empty for you to fill. Elements as feathers, branches from the woods, sea whip from the beach are used in my arrangements.
