Hotshot

It's insanely hot in brooklyn and i've melted into one big puddle of frizzled hair and freckles.

<span class=

I spent most of yesterday buzzing around saipua's flower cooler, pretending to be, oh I don't know, fixing and moving flowers when I was really just soaking up the extra refrigeration.

(And for the new kids- I assist the most truly awesome florist ever. Her name is Sarah and the shop is called Saipua. If you're not familiar, go and look at her work. But only if you're prepared to have your expectations so wildly exceeded that you will never ever look at arranged flowers the same way again.)

Is it me or does our vintage your extra touch florist cooler seem, uhh, slightly suggestive? Just sayin is all.

Wildflower bridesmaid's bouquets up top, garden roses down below. Those bouquets are going to be sauntering down the aisle tonight so wish them luck. Hopefully they won't wilt in the stifling heat.

These photos were snapped so I could have a reason to poke around in the cooler for longer because it was really that hot.

In fact, this whole post is just a ruse.

My "picture taking" was a diversionary tactic to distract Miss Sarah R. from my obsession with needlessly going into the cooler. Oh please, don't tell her. These days, I live for my cooler time.

  9. Won't say a word......guilty of doing the same in the supermarket freezer section for the full frontal effect and it works wonderfully. (Ahhhhhh...) And just who could resist those flowers anyway?!

  18. I think when you hold fresh flowers to your face, you can feel their cool sweet breath. Always makes me happy. -TJ

  19. i won't say a word ... promise.
    i would say double duty on staying cool and hanging out with the most beautiful blooms ~ lucky you!
    i have often visited saipua for inspiration and you are so right ~ she totally exceeds and excels ... i guess she does have the 'extra touch' ...
    giggling all the way,

  20. Miss Merrick, your posts are a delight. Have followed you for a couple of weeks now in wonder. What I also wonder is "WHO WILL BE YOUR 1000TH FOLLOWER" I'm amazed just how that number ticks over every day, no longer just your Mom and Ginny Branch Stelling as readers....Go you good thing....keep them coming

  22. Beautiful pictures!!! The wildflower bouquets are so "fairyland" - they are lovely! With no AC in LA I am living the flower refrigeration vicariously! Great blog, by the way!

  23. Whoa, these pictures are so beautiful!

  24. I'm pretty sure it's chamomile not feverfew, because the yellow centers stick out, but who on earth really knows?

    I have linked your site to my new blog.
    Can't wait to visit again.

  27. Photos of flowers never get old for me. I love floral art work as well. It's a chick thing but also inherited from my mom. The bridal bouquets are simple and lovely. Looks like a nice shop.

  28. Emerson, thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and your comments were a great comfort both to me and my family. I did send you an email, but it was probably deleted as spam. I sure wanted you to see your Mom's lookalike

  29. I would want to spend all my time in that cooler too, if it meant I could be surrounded by such beauty!

  30. Wooow! you work in a flower shop! The place looks really amazing! you can't find garden roses in Romanian flower shops though...nor wildflowers! Luckily there are street vendors with flowers like that from time to time...
