FINDING SPRING

It doesn't take much to make me happy. A camera and mission and I'm happy as a peach. And today's morning mission was all about finding spring, so I went to dig between rotten leaves and mud, and found these beauties. I know you can all buy these in the store, but it's a speciel feeling watching them unfold in an organic inviroment. Have a beautiful day...I'm sending spring wiffings you way! /Annika
 
By the way, my sister is going to make this exiting Spring decoration on Saturday and I can't wait to photograph it :) Don't forget to stop by, you are gonna want to make it at home too.
 
p.s. Welcome to our new followers, it's always great to see new faces. Can't wait to have a look at your blogs:)
 
 

GIVE AWAY A SMILE

 This past week has been a beautiful one. So much blog love has been spread and we really love how inspired we have felt, not just creatively, but life wise as well. And this is an amazing thing, to feel inspired and enjoy every little thing or gesture that may come your way. But it's not just about being inspired, we also think the feeling of being able to inspire someone else or put a smile on their face, it greatly underestimated. It is probably one of the greatest gestures you can make...give away a smile. In what ever way that may be, it is worth everything because it stays with the receiver. It can be a small phrase, a comment, a look, a funny picture on the internet or maybe a story...everything we send out there has an impact on someone else. 
 
So we would like to say thank you for giving us all the smiles you do. We only hope that we occasionally put a smile on your faces as well.
 
Have a beautiful Sunday! /Sussi & Annika 
 
Have a look at Fabriken for Sunday inspiration
 
 
 

TULIP DECORATION

This decoration will work wonder as a hostess gift and instead of the typical bouquet.
 
MATERIALS:
20 tulips (depends on the size of you pot)
Flora foam
Twine/string
Flower wire or pins,
A pot (we choose an oval pot 25 x 13 cm)
Salal (or green leaves of your choice)
Moss (any kind will do, this one is a silver moss)
 
HOW TO:
Soak the flower foam well in water and cut it to fit the shape of the pot.
Strip the tulips for leaves and cut the stem about 5 cm from the head. Roll some of the stripped leaves and secure with pins or wire. Start by placing a couple of salal on each side of the pot in the foam. Then randomly place out the tulips and the rolled leaves as you like. Take the moss and fill in the gaps. Make a bow from the string and secure with a pin on either side of the decoration and Voila! You're done!
 
Have a creative Saturday! /Sussi

LOVELY MUSCARI

Muscari have the most lovely blue color. They are sure to spread some early spring feeling and will easily last a week or two indoor. They are easy to plant, don't need much water and if you decorate with a bit of moss and twigs...it will look like a forest bottom.
Tomorrow we will post a 'how to' on a really cute tulip decoration. So stay tuned! 
 
Have a great Friday! /Annika
 
 

SPRING WHIFFINGS

I went to work with my sister today, to photograph some of all the flowery creations she makes. It's always fun to watch her work and to help out, but it's really hard walking amongst all these flowers and whiffs of spring and not wanting it to be April already. It has been so cold here the last couple of weeks and all this greenery just make you want to sit on a park bench, take of your shoes, drink a cup of cocoa and enjoy an early spring sun and the promises of warmer months to come. /Annika
 
 

FLOWER CENTERPIECE

Yesterday I went with my sister to help her out at work. There was a big order for 13 centerpieces which she had to do and I had to help out with the customers and do a few bouquets. I am getting better at the whole flower thing, although I have a completely different set of rules when making bouquets and wrapping them. Let's just say that it is a good thing that I'm not paid by the piece :) I snapped a few pictures of the beautiful centerpieces my sister made. So gorgeous.
 
Way to go Sis! /Annika 
 
 

ORGANIZING OUR OFFICE

We are very busy organizing our new loft/creative space, so the posting has been a bit sparse this last week. We are looking forward to have the space needed for all our creative endeavors. Right now the space is nothing but chaos, but it's a fun project. We'll show pictures later. For now here is a bit of spring feeling. 
 
Have a great day! /Annika 
 
 

CUP OF FLOWERS

Since the post last Sunday, I have been wanting to use these little teacups as flowerpots. They are tiny, so I had only room for a couple of muscari. But they turned out really fun and they made for a great photo sessions as well. Wish you all a happy Saturday! /Annika
 
 

RAW SIMPLICITY AND ELEGANCE

I have been looking forward to be sharing these pictures with you. As you might have noticed, it's my sister who's the flower master around here...and I'm the lucky one getting to photograph all of her creations. I know a lot of you really like to photograph as well, so you probably know what I'm taking about when I say that; not everything looks as good on camera as it does in real life. The interesting thing is that, what we perceive with our eyes, can be adjusted. We often choose how to see things, leaving out one detail and including something else. But the camera sees everything, nothing can be hidden. This makes certain shapes or objects more fit than others to be photographed. So when my sister came with this beautiful, odd shaped bouquet, I was not only thrilled about her ability to be creative and original, but I knew the photo shoot was going to be such a pleasure. The raw simplicity and elegance of this flower piece was breathtaking. 
 
The decoration is made from anemones and cut of branches(preferably not too crooked) in different sizes. The flowers has uneven lengths to give the piece some layers. Secure everything together with some coarse string. 
 
Happy Saturday! /Annika
 
 

SPRING COLOR INSPIRATION

We felt like creating a bit of spring inspiration today. This is a nice way to create some spring feeling in your home, even though spring is a few months ahead :) A couple of twigs or cut of branches together with a handful of colorful flowers. Make it look a bit casual by not arranging it to perfectly. Have a great Tuesday! /Sussi
