Hello and Welcome to The FLOWERPOT Cafe' II

This is a friendly place to come and sit down,have a cuppa and relax amongst other flower lovers.
It's been great fun playing with flowers at the 'getting to know you' show. Please keep posting on that thread so our new friends can introduce themselves to us, and if ever you want to 'tell us more about yourself, please do!

We are very pleased with the patronage at The FLOWERPOT Cafe and due to so many wanting to have a refresher, we thought is was time to open up a new store. Please excuse the bare walls and tables. Feel free to contribute arrangements, artwork, magazines, drinks, and any other decorating tidbits for our new Cafe'. This is an environment to nurture ideas and share advice, where no one is an amateur, just an arranger in training!

Hope you enjoy your visit and come back any time.

Glad you like the space. I may not be able to arrange flowers, but I do know my construction. You should have see what those guys thought they could pull over on me. Didn't expect a little girl like me to know what I was talking about. They were so embarrassed, they threw in some freebies. Go check out the loo, there are even places to highlight decorative soaps and towelettes. I am going next door to see the new florist again. You should check it out too. Here's the directions. Nicest little southern lady owns the shop and is in a bind. Maybe some of us could help out.

Hi Traci, you are doing a great job! I love the way you told the builders what's what!
It's so good to have you around. The loos are brilliant, a real bit of luxury around here.
I think the minature perfumes would look nice in here!

Thanks for adding the florist's next door, she seems like a nice lady! I wonder what day she gets her flowers delivered?

I'm still waiting for the removal van to arrive, where have they got to?
and where the heck is Karma? no phonecall or anything, have you heard from her?

They say moving is stressful, I think I will just sit by the fountain and wait! It's a lovely relaxing feature, what great design ideas you have Traci, thankyou!

Ah, the perfumes would be great in there, which I loved by the way. The lighting is perfect in here to show off the arts and arrangements. I am so glad you like it.

Last I spoke with Belle, she was really needing some help with flowers. She seems down on her luck and I thought we could cheer her up. I've got some lovely brugs to take to here. I finally found my camera and took pics, but I can't find the cord for the computer. I will share once I find it.

I spoke with Karma on Mid-south Forum a moment ago. She is here. She was asking a lady what the vase life of brugs was. lol.

Hi Traci, No word from Karma yet then?
I hope she turns up soon because I will have to leave you for a couple of days!
I just popped into Belle's and got some flower's, they are conditioning in some water and flower food.
I'll leave them here.I don't have time to take the leaves off!
I will pop back later to see if madam has turned up!

love the alcoves, brilliant planning Traci.

Sorry, forgot to come back here after peeking through the window last night at our new cafe. Looking nice in here. Great work ladies. Sorry I was of no help to you this morning. So glad I was missed though. Can't get away with anything around here. . .we have a mole in our midst!

Overheard Belle next door talking to a customer. . .but I had no idea what she was saying. Sounded just like you, Traci!

Those language barriers. If you need me to interpret, I would not mind at all. Belle has a distinct country southern accent, where mine is a old southern accent. I will help in any way I can. So what do you think of the new place? A bit bare but lots of potential. I have been taking pictures, but can't post until I get the correct cord for my camera. Please drop by soon. You know how miserablely sad it was when Terri was gone. You both brighten up the place.

Hello Gessiegail,
come in , have a rest from all your packing! what do you think of the new place then? I know it's bare at the moment, but we are working on that! Thanks for coming to take a look and let us know if you need anything!

I can't stay long myself, I just came in to sort that bucket of flowers out.
Karma, I'm leaving some vases, put them where you think best or ask Traci to do it please!

I'll be back in for the late shift tonight, but I have a couple of days holiday already booked, so I won't be here on Sun or Mon. Hope that is ok with you guys at such short notice?

I have decided I must have Gladiolus after all your wonderful arrangements. I was hooked on Delphenium, but those are so lush and vibrant.

Karma, just like a manager of a cafe. One day open and she is already going on Holiday. Leaving a laudry list of things to do as well. That's management for you. Ok, must find the cord as the rain brought out many wonderful wildflowers in the yard. I may attempt...A PETITE!

I've just walked past a load of people looking in Belle's window, the dear has put my Autumn flower's on display.
What are we going to do? We need to attract customers of our own!
I don't know whether to put my new one in here or there now HELP!!

Well, I believe it was brought up in discussion that a thread was needed to showcase your past arrangements in order to pick out a portfolio. I believe that Belle's will be perfect for this as she has all those "floral people" dropping in. Who knows, Floral Designer Expertise' Karman may drop in. I hear the renowned Lady Jessygeel has been seen frequenting Garden Belle. A little know critic Pupelpro also shops here. No telling who many pop in to give you direction on which past arrangements you have made. And I am sure this will help Garden Belle with business. Consider it your sounding board for ideas. What do you think?

You must check out what our Miss Terri has been doing on the artisan site. I love it!! She really needs to do something with this, wouldn't you agree. Even if it were prints, I think people would love it.

Traci, I definitely agree. I'm already making a list of all the ones I want. . .starting with the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th pics for my walls. They don't have to be prints. I wonder if she's got any of those pressed? Then you'd have an original that would last for a long time. Well, gotta get back to my coffee break. . .I mean work.

As soon as I get the ^@%@& cord for my camera, I will have to post pics of the Good Witch. I must say, she was precious. I could use the extra weight anyway. Slowly, lbs by lbs, I am gaining. I never thought it would be this hard. lol.

Karma has been in such a rush lately, she probably breezed by the new section. I guess it will take us a while to get use to the new layout. Have fun, relax, and try not to spend too much time reading. We need ARRANGEMENTS!!

Terri, thanks for finding the mags. I looked all over for them! All those arrangements were great. I never got into buying a subscription. . .they're so pricey.

"Karma, get you rear over here or no Brugs for you!!". Crap. . .am I too late?????? How can I make it up to y'all?

Donna, thanks! Love figs. . .don't know anyone around here that will give me some. I thought about stealing from my neighbor's empty lot, but he hasn't returned to cut his grass in forever. . .not sure what's lurking in there. I caught him taking my pears one time so we would be even if I could get my hands on the figs.

Haha, Karma, nice try. Terri KNOWS where I have been. :^P.

Terri, I love the painting. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!! I wonder if you could paint some tiny wall vases and attach, so "if someone bought it" They could alway put flowers in it. Just a thought.

I have much cleaning to do on the house. I will down this double expresso and be off. I'll drop in later.

Karma, bring your flowers!! Old, new, dead, it doesn't matter.

Love the new flower art Terri. Peyton will come by this afternoon for a game of hopscotch. He's sleeping now, and I have to go to work. Trying not to be late. . .so addicted to dg. Remember that idea with putting bamboo in a grid like fashion? It would look just like what you have with the roses, except with little flower arrangements on it. Much easier to do with silks. . .it's lightweight and doesn't require water. I have to find time to make one to show you!

WELCOME SHARRAN! Thankyou for coming to our FLOWERPOT cafe' it's lovely to see you here.We don't have a huge gallery, but there is room for more! We have a good selection of food and drinks,magazines to look at and there's always a friendly atmosphere. Of course, we try to change our flowers daily! (help needed) hint hint!!
You can use the hopscotch at 3am if you like, we do!!!

Thankyou Karma! I would really like to see that bamboo arrangement sometime!, I will need to see it, because I don't have much imagination and I can't visualize it!

Thanks for showing me how to make this design Karma, I'll see if Traci can find the time to give us more detail about the layout of this cafe' I never know where to put things do you?

Would you look at that!, it's only fallen off the shelf!, TRACI...###//#de#BuildersAgain##!!!

Does anyone know how to dry leaves? I found a ton of beautiful purple and red leaves in the back yard and would like to press (?) them to dry so teensy and I can do some fun stuff. also thought it would look good on wrapping paper.

Traci, press them in a large heavy book like an encyclopedia. Do people even own these anymore? Or you can make one with two pieces of wood. Align them together and drill holes at each of the four corners. Lay tissue paper between each layer of leaves. Cut two pieces of cardboard. . .to be continued. . .have to go.

The cardboard will serve to cushion the leaves between the tissue paper. Paper helps absorb moisture from the leaves. . . thus accelerating the drying process. Here's the order. Like a sandwich. Wood, cardboard, tissue paper, leaves (laid out singly never overlapping another leaf), tissue paper, more leaves, tisue paper, more leaves (get the picture?), tissue paper, cardboard, wood. Using screws (longer screws will give you lots more space in between), screw the two pieces of wood together. I don't know what you call it. . . the thing that will hold the screw and keep the mess together. . .is it a nut or washer or something? Let me try to find a pic of the device I used to own. Very cool to have. If you make a big one, you can press all kinds of stuff! Like you said, they would look wonderful on wrapping paper. I have a box of dried leaves in christmas colors that I plan to use for xmas presents. The leaves are almost translucent.

Hi Terri! How are you? Didn't get a chance to say: I didn't believe you when you said "because I don't have much imagination and I can't visualize it!"

Edit with link: http://www.save-on-crafts.com/leafflowpres.html

I forgot to say too. . .you can preserve leaves in glycerin: I tried it once a long time ago. I wanna say it looks real and comes out 3D, not like pressed flowers. http://www.ehow.com/how_5454_preserve-leaves-with.html

I have been so crazy trying to do 1000 things at once, I haven't been able to write back. I will D you this evening. The others I haven't seen are amazing and I have just the right places to hang them. The piano is...well, fantastic sounds to blaise'. I think I need to go to the dictionary and find some new words to express how much I like the really exceptional items. I am honored that you will let us hang them in here. Weirdo is good!! I like weirdo thingys. That is a wonderful painting.

I LOVE rescued furniture. That is my area of art. Antiques and restoration. I will have to get some of mine and show it to you.

As far as arranging goes, I am trying to learn. Learn with me. I have done two simple ones. I have got to get some supplies such as oasis foam, floral wire and, oh, flowers. I love learning, and they give good ideas on your arrangements. Have you seen the thread for simple arrangements? Karma had me move one flower and it made the world of difference. There are no bad arrangements, just works in progress.

Good luck Terri and don't forget pics. I am going to have a double expresso and jet.

Traci, you are on a roll with all your big words. I swear I was not here before I dmailed you last.

I emailed Milissa, but she hasn't responded. She's not into all these new electronic stuff, so I may have to pick up the phone and give her an old fashion call.

Thanks terri, for the new editions. I won't have time to look at them in depth. Trying to finish all the new replies tonight and go to bed. Peyton is sick and the Doc put him on antibiotics for his ear infection and breathing treatments. She scared me a bit when she ordered for an RSV screening and chest x-ray. Thank God the tests were negative. I got dh home to help. . .but here I am. Shame on me.

And. . . .won't you quit teasing us with all your parallels. BTW, I would love to see your house. It is filled with really great art.

Something has happened, when I come to this cafe' thread the 'skip to new' it has gone away from my screen.
Looking at what flowers have gone into this FLOWERPOT cafe it's quite sad! WE NEED FLOWERS HERE!!!

I neeed some help to make some flower chairs for some naughty people that I will be inviting to our cafe'.
I will be expected to provide at least 10 chairs! Any help would be much appreciated!
