Introducting Violets & Vine

February Songs

Deep Breath In.  Deep Breath Out. 

Introducing Violets & Vine, my floral design studio.  My dreams feel grand and big and yet now it all sits on this small parchment paper.  A small gesture announcement that has been pinned to mailboxes and passed around to friends and neighbors.  I spread the word slowly and in hushed tones of my little secret garden of dreams. 

Violets & Vine aims to source locally grown flowers and foliage, use sustainable business practices, and each and every stem in our bouquets is to hold meaning and substance.  There will be floral poetry in abundance.  One day it will be a little brick and mortar shop.  There will be botanical prints hanging on the wall, flowers filling up a walk in cooler, and a beautiful collection of unique vases and vessels.  Every afternoon there will be tea time with cakes and cookies on offer to those lovely few who stop in to say hello.

For now it begins humbly, simply, and with great love on this Valentine's Day.


  1. Congratulations, Annette, on your new business. I love all your ideas and dreams and can tell by the way you've described everything so vividly, that they will all come true! The very best to you.

  2. I am dreaming for you too. Your vision is so lovely and well said. Maybe dreaming your dream together sometimes will suffice until it becomes a beautiful reality.


Your words touch my heart. Tread softly.
