An announcement...

<span class=

While we're talking saipua, today is the official opening day of our fancy new flower shop at 147 Van Dyke street in picturesque Red Hook! Flowers to make you weep! Come one, come all!


  1. Congrats!
    Your time in the cooler has paid off.

  2. Those wildflower bridesmaids' posies are the prettiest wedding flowers I've ever seen. You were right when you wrote that we would not look at floral arrangements in the same way. Very inspirational.

  3. I have family in Red Hook! It's so pretty there! Have fun

  4. Congrats from Madrid!!

  5. i would love to be there! but alas, after google mapping, i realized that it would take 1 day and 5 hours to get there ... dang. so please just accept many warm wishes for a wonderful official opening day from canada!

  6. I too would love to be there, but it would take me 18 hours and 43 minutes from the midwest. It is 8:18 a.m. here and a cool lovely day. AND I slept late. All is well. Have a great opening day.

  7. If I had 43 hours, 31 minutes to spare, I would make the drive and purchase a bouquet of flowers to celebrate. Alas, I do not, so I can not, but I wish you a lovely and successful opening day from California! Prairie Girl, you are clever!

  8. Hello, just leaving you a comment as I've so enjoyed looking around your site and reading your lovely posts. Great pictures too !

    Thank so much for sharing them and I hope you have a fab weekend (well, the rest of it anyway...)!

    Best wishes to you

  9. Sorry, I'm too far away. Please give us some pictures to dwell on ...


  10. I wish I could come visit, best of luck to you!

  11. Hope it all went well. Those flowers are just magnificent!

  12. and judging by the earlier pix, real flowers as opposed to the soulless chemically forced scent-free blooms so often seen in Australian flower shops...

  13. I love your well wishes from around the world. Brought to you from your fan club in Merryland.

    Your blog makes our world cozy and connected. Real and sweet!

    These simply beautiful flowers remind me of my hippy wedding with hand picked flowers, courtesy of my sisters.

    Natural is good. I feel for people who think that big and fancy is the way to impress people.

    3 cheers for Saipua!
    For the freedom from mass production!

  14. i popped by the shop on saturday and it looked AMAZING! so fun to see in person.
