I Love You more than New Shoes

My best friend, Pip, once sent me a mug with this written on and it makes me smile everytime I reach for the kettle. When I wrote a book all about the warm, wonderful and, at times, weird messages people send with flowers I was reminded of her gift. (I was probably drinking coffee from her mug as I was pondering what I would photograph for the front cover!) And as I love Pip more than new shoes too, I filled a beaded vintage shoe with roses and photographed that amongst a pile of hatboxes. And I dedicated the book to her, as after all where would we be without our best friends?

  1. Can I just say how much I am loving these posts, they are gorgeous.
    Would you mind me askign what the book is called? I would love to read it. I'm a huge fan of flowers, it amazes me how much they can brigten up a day, a room, a garden, practically anything :)

    I'm guessing you probably have, but if you haven't already you should read the book The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh, a truly beautiful book
