Do you ever get the feeling that you may have bitten off more than you can chew?
At the time, coming up with the notion of hosting a 'flowers & frippery' workshop at the store seemed like such a brilliant idea.
Then I advertised it, thinking perhaps that if no-one showed an interest, that I could either quietly forget about it, or find a nice friendly rent-a-crowd to fill the seats.
Blow me down, we oversold it in 2 days. Even the Dominion Post thinks it could be worth 'covering'!
Well I must admit - the idea of a fabulous workshop, where I could enjoy a glass of wine, while a scintillating hostess inspired me with some floral wonders does sound positively lovely.
Until I remember with a resounding jolt, that I'm meant to be the scintillating hostess.And scintillating is not something I do well.
Thank goodness then for a co-host.
Sarah from Daisy A Day actually knows about flowers. And she's creative. She gets to talk about the flowers part. I get to fritter on about the frippery.
Now I just need to figure out what I'm frittering on about - before tomorrow night.
So you see, definitely bitten off more than I can chew.
Oh, happy monday!
P.S I do love using this teapot for flowers at home. I have no idea who Miss Waddington was. But I felt sad that this beautiful teapot, which was presented to her in 1906 by the Arnold House boarders, apparently no longer had a home. I needed to give it one, and it always makes me smile!Pin It
