Hello and welcome! I'm Constança, a.k.a. Concha, a sewing enthusiast and a great believer in seasonal living. In January 2010 my husband and I moved from Lisbon, Portugal to rural Staffordshire, England; then in December 2012 we embraced a new adventure in New Zealand. But my goal remains the same: to lead a simple, meaningful, handmade life in a lovely home with my family.
São todas do jardim à excepção dos malmequeres, que foram apanhados à beira da estrada. Gosto mais dumas do que doutras mas, ao contrário dos verdadeiros jardineiros que não apanham flores para não estragar o jardim, eu não as consigo deixar morrer lá fora. Estes são os arranjos que fui fazendo ao longo da semana.
They all come from the garden except for the daisies, which were picked at the side of a road. I prefer some to others but, unlike proper gardeners who can't bear to cut flowers for fear of spoiling the garden, I just can't let them die outside. These are the arrangements I made this week.
