France Palmer's Studio

Untitled
My good friend Frances Palmer is having a pottery sale at her studio in Weston, Connecticut this weekend. Her pots are something of a legend and going to see them in person is really worth it.  Details for the sale are here.

Untitled Earlier in the fall when the garden was still blooming, I went up for an afternoon and Frances threw pots while I played with flowers she'd grown. At one point salted caramels and earl grey tea were involved. Going there always makes me happy and I think you'll love it, too.

  1. Salted caramels and earl grey? Yes please. That sounds like a lovely way to spend a day. And that first picture took my breath away. xo

  5. What a fascinating studio sitting in the fog. Great photo! Love the beautiful flowers but there is just something about that building sitting in a little forest area shrouded in fog. A mystery maybe...

  11. I've been reading your blog (from beginning to present) with copious cups of tea and suitable (but secret) amounts of chocolate. I have just recently read the post about Frances work and I fell head over heels for her work. I love that blog land is a platform for positive sharing... thank you!!!
    PS - Your blog is awesome Amy. You've inspired me no end. (and when I have my little florist dream come true... please know you were a part of it's magic)

  15. The simmetry of the windows is properly amazing, when this house was built ? I loved your pictures of the zinnias and dahlias in the garden ! Thank you !
    Good luck for getting through Sandy, I heard a lot about it in Paris (at my work place). By the way, I know winter is a but hard for florist but it also means Xmas, so I am looking forward for what you can do with green, flowers (what's left), fruits, etc. If I could, I would love to have a 3 days special class of Xmas wreath with you, I am sure people will flock to it. All the best to you and it is always such a pleasure to read your blog and looking at your pictures.

  16. As soon as I looked at the first picture and those oddly but perfectly spaced windows I knew: I had dreamed of this place before. I'm no architect, but I dream of the space I will one day own...and this has little pieces of the dream space - the windows that lift up, the silvery colour blending into the misty sky ... I'm a long time peruser of your blog; but first time commenter. I think of you when I fill my umbrella on the way up the hill home, with elderflowers and kōwhai and jasmine, arriving home with wet hair and sweet smelling blooms. At the moment there are already-opened, gifted, dripping peonies.

    As always, it's a pleasure to visit you here. x
