Valentines Day Devon Style

Hi Folks

Its that lovely time of year for spending an awful lot of money on expensive floristry which dies very quickly.  Why not say it with some gorgeous handmade works of art which are guaranteed to stay fresh as the day they were bought.

Here's a little of my favourites

Honiton Lace Hearts by Amy Orangejuice

Aren't these pretty,  Amy McCarthy of Amy Orangejuice makes each of these hearts with recycled coloured glass Amy paints them by hand with designs inspired by 17th and 18th Century Honiton Lace.  Perfect for hanging on the tree or in a sunny window.

Perfectly formed flowers from Lily's to Tulips, handcrafted by the very talented Kat Thomas aka
