The glories of Christmases long, long ago…

"… tales of the glories of Christmases long, long ago. It's the most wonderful time of the year. There be much mistletoe-ing and hearts will be glowing…"

Christmas Chandelier.

There'll be kindling for weaving

Tea-light chandelier.

candles for gleaming

Floral Christmas Chandelier

and crystals hung in the snow

Twisted hazel branches and willow stems, eucalyptus and Dendrobium orchids

There'll be light scattered stories

Pine garland.

And tales of the glories

Christmas crystal chandelier.

Of Christmases long, long ago

Floral Chandelier.

It's the most wonderful time of the year…

Title and words adapted from "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year", a popular Christmas song, composed in 1963 by Edward Pola and George Wyle

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.
