Hello It’s Me!

Well first let me say, HELLO!!!  Yes, that is me being loud and proud with a huge big Texas size waving of arm and hands.

I know it’s been a very long while, since I’ve written anything.  I am sorry.  I know you are full of grace and so forgiving.  Soooo forgiving that can just pick up where we left of.  Or better yet, start from the beginning.

Let me start from the beginning…

It’s me, Michaelyn.  Oh that’s pronounced Mike-lin.  It’s okay if you get it wrong the first few times. I still have family that says it wrong…it’s only been almost 46 years.

Yup, I just gave away my age.  I am okay with that.  Probably because I only have five grey hairs and they are well hidden under the glorious black/brown natural locks of mine. To which are often pulled back into a bun and a headband adorns my brow.

Is that right, you call it a brow right? Maybe forehead? Same thing? ….anyway and a hoot-to-do, Hi!

This is my first post and right now, I don’t have anything to say.  No, wait!  I have plenty to say, I just have to organize it so it make sense and I don’t know, maybe you’ll want to listen, read or watch.

I plan on being me here.  I work in the wedding planning business as a floral designer. I am the owner and lead designer at Blossom Cottage & Lace.  The folks I deal with on a regular bases (I mean beyond the brides) don’t often get to see the real me.  I am plagued with being posed and dignified. Everything must be in perfect order.  I can’t say to much and I can’t say to little (I really never, ever…like super rarely say to little).  I can’t be too loud. Which is difficult to do coming from a Theatre performance background.

I must always use — what’s the word I am looking for? Decorum!! Yes, I must always have decorum!! But, I LOVE to have fun.  So here is where I will be a little looser than normal.

Here is where I share the ups and down of being a floral stylist, the life and times of myself, my family and so much more. Yes, I am going to get down and dirty and let it all hang out.

Thank you for joining me and I look forward to reading your comments, answering your questions and just enjoying life right along side with you.  Well sort of beside you…maybe in front of you via a screen?  Well either way, ask me anything…I am practically an open book.


We’re Open

I know it’s only been four weeks, but it sure does feel like a life time of discussions, thinking things out, planning, setting goals, more planning and working really hard to get it just they way I like it…which is now.  Finally, I get to say…

We are open



Do you know how exciting it is to finally say it!  WE’RE OPEN!!!  I feel like one of my kids when I allow them to watch one of their favorite movies while eating.

Blossom Cottage Lace is a full service event design house specializing in vintage themes.  This blog is where I will share my favorite finds, inspirations, and definitely my designs.

So over time as you get to know me, I hope to brighten your day and offer you a bit of inspiration, a place to relax and smell the roses.  If you like what you see, feel free to comment, share a post or two, or even pin an image – just mention where you got it from for legal reasons (I’ll make sure to do the same).  Just have a good time…my cottage is your cottage!

Until we meet again, I want to leave you with few of my favorites from this past weekend…Grab your tea and enjoy.  ~ Michaelyn
