Kelly’s beautiful book came in the mail yesterday. And I could not wait to open it and pour over every word and image. You see, Kelly has been sharing some images from her book as she took them and I have been smitten. For those of you who didn’t know, my dear, dear friend Kelly from My Soulful Home has written the most beautiful book called My Soulful Home A Year In Flowers. Filled with floral tips and stories and just the most beautiful flower arrangements for each month of the year! And today she’s sponsoring a flower inspired giveaway for StoneGable readers!
I’m giving you a sneak peek into this delightful book. And you can even see Emmet of Decorating Tips And Tricks fame at the bottom of the post!
BUT FRIST… let’s get to know Kelly a little better
In addition to writing this book, Kelly authors the blog My Soulful Home is co-creator of the app bHome and is producer/co-host of the popular podcast Decorating Tips & Tricks. She is currently renovating an 1886 Victorian farmhouse. She shares this historic work in progress with her husband, two girls & dog Emmett.
My Soulful Home: A Year In Flowers is full of inspiration that will bring joy to your life. Each chapter overflows with information, advice, tips & tutorials. Practical advice is woven together with vivid stories in a tone that embraces the novice to experienced floral designer.
This is May’s floral arrangement. Isn’t it stunning! And Kelly will walk you through the process from choosing the right container to adding the last flower!
Kelly’s 12 tutorials, coinciding with the month’s of the year, can be re-created petal by petal or use them as a spring board to your own designs. You will have more than enough knowledge about flowers, floral care & design after reading the book to create just about anything with flowers.
June’s arrangement. So sweet! And just think you CAN do this! Kelly will show you how!
December’s red and white floral arrangement. Don’t you love it in the tarnished silver! Sigh!
Each page empowers you, not only with knowledge on the how & why of floral design but also shares simple ways to elevate your everyday. And I know you, like me, love to elevate the everyday in our lives!
As Kelly says… “Don’t spend your life waiting for someone to send you flowers. Make your own arrangements”. With her book, you can do just that!
