Audience participation





Technology and i are not friends.

I have managed to lose 3 hours work, my ipod has a sad face, and the internets are intermittent.

I put a call into Cityboy1, I have been admonished for googling the problem, a little knowledge in the wrong hands is a dangerous thing.

This post might not make it to the blog, and the pictures are from days gone by, but I am loving the pastel shades.

Instead hit me with your blogs, or just blogs you like, they don't have to be yours. Although shameless self promotion is allowed.

I am looking for some new ones, i am not a big fan of the "here is something i found on the internet" type blog, i like people blogs from people that actually do something.


I await with bated breath.

You are welcome to read mine... it is something I am constantly trying to improve on and I have to admit I don't write in it as often as I am told I should! http://flowerstudioim.blogspot.com/2011/01/rose-by-any-other-name.html

I love your blog by the way, and of course the Hounds!

Spriggs Florist said...

Miss P It will be alright on the night so to speak. You of all people set the blogging standards. We have done a post today of a lovely spring wedding from a few years back. I am sure that the cityboy will have it all sorted soon. Love to you and the hound. Miss Spriggs xx

Oohh hello Miss Pickering. I would love you to pop over to see me... http://aplacefortea.blogspot.com/. I love flowers, and post a Friday Flower every week... I bake and I'm just starting out with sewing... Okay, that's the end of my shameless self promotion... If I'm not your bag, then try http://misssewandso.blogspot.com/ or http://www.abeachcottage.com both post thoughtful words and beautiful pictures. Hope you pop over... Lx

Andrea Lutz said...

I would be very happy for you to read my blog. http://blog.peppertreefloral.com/
I am currently re-designing my website and blog so by 2-1 everything should be snazzy and happy, but a little change here and there until then. If you do end up looking, let me know what you think. I do mostly weddings, but have a retail shop as well.

Nothing to do with flowers, but my friend is spending 4 months travelling and is writing a blog about her experiences. She's currently in Thailand. I think she writes very well, especially about the food. Her blog From the Delta to the DMZ is online at: http://deltatothedmz.wordpress.com/

Give the Hound a pat from me. x

Hi Miss Pickering,


I am a HUGE fan of you and The Hound and enjoy logging on to read your posts. Now whilst I am not a florist, I am in the process of setting up my own vintage home ware business and have set up my own blog until my website is finished!

OF SPRING AND SUMMER said...

Hi Miss Pickering,
I am not a florist, I just love flowers!
I don't sell anything, apart from maybe one day my photographs!
Everything on my blog is my own work, nobody else.
You are on my blog list called Floral Delights. Looking forward to your book!
Ingrid xx

domestikated said...

Poor you, hope you get it sorted out soon. This post made it to us so maybe things are on the mend?

My blog is a mixture of my life and my photos and things I've found around the internets, so you might not be dead against it! www.domestikated.wordpress.com

And some of my other favourites that might meet your standards are www.domesticali.typepad.com and www.gingerjumbles.blogspot.com. Oh! And www.teacupscupcakes.blogspot.com. Enjoy!

domestikated said...

Just thought of another one that might suit you - it's all photographs and dogs! www.aweebitofcooking.co.uk x

rachel said...

That's me out, then, having just posted a recipe I found on the internet. On the other hand, I did actually make it first...... www.attica-slow-life.blogspot.com.

Kia Ora Ms Pickering, I would love you to come visit my blog, which is loosely based on a Kiwi transplanted to Bristol because of her hubbie's animation job.

Most of the time I adore living in Bristol, but sometimes (like today when it's cold) the love ain't there too much.

I had to leave my dog behind (she is now living with friends in San Francisco!) so miss doggies terribly...love your blog with its gorgy pics of your woofer..

Plse stop on by..

Sounds just like your kind of girl Miss P, I enjoy her blog, www.suziethefoodie.blogspot.com
.........but not as much as yours, I think she is missing a hound! xxx

Fiona Cameron said...

Have been enjoying your blog for a while now - love The Hound although I don't think my furry girls would be so keen seeing as how The Hound sets cat traps with grass. You're welcome to have a read of my blog (fionasfibrefantasies.blogspot.com) - although I'm an intermittent blogger at best. Enjoy, keep up the good work and cheers to The Hound

Ruth in California said...

I post a quirky little website about vintage weddings. If you want to look at it, it's at www.weddingspinster.com.

Becca said...

Urrrr I don't have a blog.....I probably should, I'm quite witty. I follow (omg hi Clare) anyotherwedding because it's not upitsownarse like other wedding blogs and are honest and have mother in laws too. I also love lovemydress because Annabel is a saint in the world of wedding bloggers and US blogs because I like the invitations.

I do the seven day news quiz on the BBC and it's almost a blog as it's online.

I like Lotte and Bloom too.

I will definately check all of these out.

I do have a random section of mini rants and accompanying photos on facebook.

See you tomorrow for cake. How exciting.

Jennifer Tetlow said...

I discovered your blog a while ago and enjoy it very much. As well as the art that I create I also do window display. I like your window displays, show more of them. Your floral work whether in bouquets or in the window displays is excellent.

Oh, by the way, Len is short for Leonard not Leona or Lenore! HAHAHA!!!
