On The Street Where You Live

"On the Street Where You Live" is a song from the 1956 Broadway musical My Fair Lady. The music is composed by Frederick Loewe and the lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner.

Floral Art Design On The Street Where You Live

A floral design snapshot of what it looks like when walking down the streets of Vancouver this week.

Autumn leaf wreath

Fall leaves are whirling about in all shades of red, orange and impossibly bright yellow. And to highlight all the colours of autumn you still see hopeful sprigs of green scattered on moss covered twigs.

On The Street Where You Live fall leaf arrangement

It is just that beautiful.

Even angry leaf-blowers cannot dampen the enthusiasm of the tumbling and twirling fall leaves.

The simplest errand takes me hours to run because I am leisurely strolling, staring high up in every tree or crawling on the pavement complimenting every sprig, twig and fluttering leaf on the way.

Every week I add a new design with related tutorials. Be sure to subscribe to receive an email notification with design inspiration.

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
