A World Amongst The Flowers

A wintery mix made the sky gray as I drove towards Paoli. In the midst of all the snow, I heard I could find a shop that would bring some color into the everlasting white that has enveloped the north for some time now.

When the winter overtakes, having yourself surrounded by flowers helps to keep a little spring and summer by your side, and I placed myself in that setting for a minute this past weekend.

Cottage Flowers is a little rustic oasis, and the owner Heather is just the sweetest thing. She kept the shop open a few extra hours for me on Saturday as I got to take a peek inside her world of flowers that she has created for herself. With antique book pages covering the walls and little knickknacks here and there, I felt like I had stepped into a scene from Alice In Wonderland.

10 years the shop has lived now, and Heather has used this as her home base, where she creates floral arrangements for special events and weddings. Inspired by our Wildflower Lookbook, I was eager to photograph this place when I heard about it.
