Studio Choo!

Bless you!

I wanted to share with you this wildly talented duo as I think you will enjoy their work just as much as I do.  They began in their kitchen and garage in the San Francisco area. Alethea continues to work from the Bay area and Jill has relocated to Newport, Rhode Island.
They are now known as Studio Choo East & West.

Studio Choo is the floral methodology of two best friends, Alethea Harampolis and Jill Rizzo, who share a love for things natural and wild.

I search for this type of stimulation and inspiration high and low.
It makes my heart happy!

This little touch of "Love" is so sweet and unique!
These little touches make the piece memorable...

Just hanging around, making your home a home.

Staying inspired is a beautiful, lifelong journey!

It's what makes life so rich.
For more inspiration, page through their BEAUTIFUL books.

The arrangements in it run the gamut of styles and techniques: some are wild and some are structured; some are time-intensive and some are astonishingly simple. Ingredient lists specify the type and quantity of blooms needed; clear instructions detail each step; and 400 photos show how to place every stem. Readers will learn how to work with a single variety of flower to great effect, and to create vases overflowing with layered blooms. The book is packed with ideas for unexpected vessels, seasonal buying guides, a flower care primer, and fun design techniques you need to know.

Happy reading!

Stay inspired!

Lindsay and Jon Weisgerber


If we love each other, God lives in us,

and his love has been brought to full expression through us.

1 John 4:12

Lindsay and Jon were married in May at

Baby's Breath in Ball Jars tied with twine covered the tables covered in white linen.

Her bouquet was made of roses, scabiosa pods, succulents, fragrant stock, and dusty miller.

Lindsay and her dad built this door arch together.
What a beautiful view.
It was covered with foraged vines, pine, assorted greenery and other flowers.

Beautiful photography by Britt Photography!

We are family...

May the Lord bless you and keep you...

The Neuerburgs

You are loved with an EVERLASTING LOVE.

Jeremiah 31:3

Chelsea and Adam were joined together in marriage at her family's farm.
Now they have their own family farm! (which I can't wait to visit someday...)

White roses, spray roses and sweet peas were the main elements in her bouquet.

Isn't she lovely?!

God is in every tomorrow,
Therefore I live for today;
Certain of finding at sunrise
Guidance and strength for the day.

Power for each moment of weakness,
Hope for each moment of pain.
Comfort for every sorrow,
Sunshine and joy after the rain.

God is in every tomorrow,
Planning for you and me.
Even in the dark I will follow,
Trust where my eyes cannot see.

Stilled by His promise of blessing,
Soothed by the touch of His hand.
Confident in His protection,
Knowing my life-path is planned.

May God bless you and keep you...

There is something to be said about simplicity.

For me, simplifying helps me to breathe easier.
When I simplify my day and my surroundings,
it's much easier to see all that I have to be thankful for.

Beauty of style, and harmony and grace and good rhythm depend on simplicity. - Plato

Simplicity is like a kiss of kindness...

Be kind to yourself - SIMPLIFY.
