a special message for a few of the mom's of les fleurs : mother's day love

for these 3 special ladies at the shop, this is for you!
sandra, amy and julie... you have shaped me as a florist, as a women and as a mother... this is a special post from me with help from your kiddo's with a special wish this mother's day!  xo, kerianne

this is a special mother's day for my little family... i am celebrating my 1st mother's day.  i'm not sure i ever understood before how special this would feel, it wasn't until sarah was here and then i just got it.  unconditional, unwavering love.  the kind of love you'd do anything for, can't explain and wouldn't give away for anything.  to my sarah grace: you are too little to understand this, but you are my everything!  thank you for being the best little lovey in the world, i am so happy to be your mom!  

to all the mom's out there... happy mother's day!

thank you leah haydock for these beautiful pictures of the ladies at les fleurs and to each of your children who share these memories and mother's day wishes to each of you!

for sandra :
hey mom!  we just wanted to let you know that we are extremely thankful to have you in our lives and appreciate all that you provide and do for us.  we also wanted to thank you for all the times you brought us out on the ice and taught us how to skate.  we wouldn't be where we are without it.  you're the best mom, happy mother's day!  
love, cam & mitch

for amy :
My mother is a woman like no other.  Selfless, patient, warm, kind and completely devoted to her children.  You asked me to recall a special memory I have and well it is an impossible task.  I possess a lifetime of memories that are infinite.  My mother is my best friend, my constant reminder of faith, of strength, of seeing the good in life, the good in people.  My mother and I share a bond that is deeply embedded into my core, my soul.  She gave me life, nurtured me, taught me, dressed me, held me, kissed me, believed in me, but most importantly loved me unconditionally.  Now that I am a mother myself, I can only hope and strive to resemble the love that my mother gives to me.  Thank you my Momma, my best friend, I love you so much.  Happy Mother’s Day.  Love Jen xoxo 
I've gotta admit, selfishly Mothers' Day used to be a holiday for this proud son too as I got the opportunity to take Mom out for our "date night". What better way for a son to be able to spend some time than with his first love. How about we go out again soon? Happy Mother's Day to my "good cook and beautiful". Love you, Kev

for julie :
Your kindness, understanding and guidance has made me into the man I am today. Thank you for the constant love and support as I would be nowhere without it and nobody without you. Please know that I will always be here for you no matter what comes our way. Looking forward to many more rounds of golf, updating your passport and making time for adventure. Love, T
For all the times I didn't thank you, either because I was too young, too busy or just didnt find the words, today I want to thank you for all you've done for me. Thank you for your unconditional love and friendship. Thank you for showing me grace when I didn't deserve it. Thank you for giving me guidance when I wouldn't listen. Thank you for loving me when I didn't deserve it. Thank you for everything you gave to me and everything you have given up to make sure I was happy. Thank you for being my best friend. Love, Sonie

a little message from me to the 3 of you: we all remember a time when i said "i'd never cook"... i taught myself and i love cooking now or when i said "i'm not really an animal person" my best bud luka will be 8 years old, i'm such a sucker for pups now and the famous "kids aren't for me, ill never have them" my daughter has changed my outlook on everything, no words can really describe the feeling.  each of you offered subtle hints about how great cooking for your family was, how much you loved a companion and how spectacular having children is.  it was from your influence i have many things to be grateful for, wither i knew it at the time or not.  i only hope that one day my daughter has such strong mother's around her from day to day to share stories and help influence her path the way you have mine.  happy mother's day, i love you all!

as danielle and i venture into the world of motherhood, luckily with one another by our sides, we have such amazing role models to looks up too!  thank you sans, ames and jules!!

xo, kerianne

high point : design show : traveln' for the shop

for this great post i hand over the blog to sandra... enjoy taking a trip to high point market with sandra! xo, kerianne

From Sandra:
High Point "Market"

For those of you that have never heard of High Point Market, it is the largest furniture & accessory trade show in the world... drawing an estimated 80,000 people!! 
It is not open to the general public... instead industry insiders (whom are buyers) from large retailers like (Anthropologie, Restoration Hardware) to "small boutique" owners like me come to seek out the latest trends, attend seminars & "smooze" with people from our industry.  It is a ton of fun & truly inspiring. 
Here are a few pics from my recent trip to give you an inside view of how we shop at this amazing show!  Enjoy!

My sister-in-law Terri traveled along with me on this trip.  This was her first experience at "Market"  and she absolutely loved it!  Such a treat to have a companion with me:)

                                                                               Love the antique chandelier and old vintage shutters

Why can't my bookcases look like this???

Very cool tufted chair that has "petite" fleurette gatherings

Garden "Les Fleurs" inspiration

This is one of my favorite showrooms...believe it or not this was an old garage that they transformed into this magical garden wonderland!



When I walked into this showroom, I felt like I was at Les the flowers gathered together in vintage bottles!

Wow...mirrors galore!

Window boxes made out of old wood...this company makes custom tables out of reclaimed wood and uses the "scraps" to make these amazing window that they recycle

This showroom used to be an old bank...yes, that is a bed in the vault...hmm...

Milpa burl tree slabs from South East Mexico, bleached from the sun

Not sure what these are, but I'm calling them "wooden bowling balls"

Ok, yes, even I get tired and need a rest... of course I had to pick the most amazing chair in the showroom!

Bleached manzanita branches in an antique grape basket...truly amazing

Hope you enjoyed my trip to High Point...
xoxo, Sandra
