Bugs & Blossoms

This post was inspired by some beautiful spring days that made clicking on the Instagram icon on my phone all worth it again, because of Japan, and a reminder that it is Van Gogh’s birthday (30th of March) and that he was good with blossoms (below):

So, because spring has sprung – in some parts of Europe at least – I’ve put together this little buds and bugs gallery of cute and invigorating things to wear, sprinkle about the home or carry in your pretty purses.

I love flower arranging since working for a gardening magazine last year (new gorgeous issue out now), and one of my last edit jobs for IMAGE Interiors & Living was Vandra Costello‘s tips on how to use those precious spring buds around the home.
