Saipua

I think I must have been a very good girl in a past life.

I'm officially assisting Sarah from Saipua! Cue screaming and squealing and jumping up and down like a fool.

As if playing with the worlds most beautiful flowers in sleepy Red Hook wasn't enough, she actually ALLOWED me to tag along with her to a Martha Stewart Weddings photo shoot where she was doing the flowers.

Martha freaking Stewart, people.


I feel like I've cheated somehow. I have virtually no experience with flowers and there I was, next to a flower god, on a Martha Stewart set, making boutonnieres for the magazine.

And the offices? Like a beautiful, spotless, crafty hospital.

I spend all day picking up rose petals I'd dropped in the hallway, fearing at any moment Miss Martha herself was going to turn the corner and demand to know who had made such a mess.

  3. I always believe that the path one takes can ever be planned too carefully you just have to let it unfold in front of you.
    This is such an amazing opportunity to do what you love.

  10. Cool cool very cool...
    sometimes things just fall in place....
