A Honey Inspired Photo Shoot With Elizabeth

 A visit from Liz wouldn't really feel complete without a little photo shoot, so luckily we just barely squeezed one in before she headed back up to to Seattle ( to FINISH her last stretch of sea time and school before testing for her first mate's license!!!). Here she is all gussied up for a honey inspired affair, complete with amber glassware, gold edged plates, and a pale yellow silk dress from Community Projects in Napa (that place is a treasure trove), tiny candles of pure beeswax from Napa Valley Apothecary in Napa, honey drenched baklava from a bakery Petaluma which shall remain nameless due to its somewhat lackluster product (if you want good baklava you can go to Small World Restaurant in Napa, but you'll have to get there earlier than we did or it will all be gone!), lunaria seedpods from Napa, scabiosa seedpods from Watsonville, and the stars of the show, roses from Garden Valley Ranch and Neve Brother Roses in Petaluma.

  1. Jaime! you just keep knocking me out. What are those coffee colored roses? and I always hate this questions, but are they real?

  2. Aren't they crazy? They are called 'Pieter B'. Fallon at Garden Valley Ranch can hook you up- they ship nationwide : ).

  3. Had a not so great experience with Garden Valley Ranch. I've ordered from them for several years...but received a batch of Katherine Morley that fell apart..and they wouldn't work with me at all on the loss. Eight bunches.. O well.

  4. Oh no! I've never had anything but lovely experiences at Garden Valley Ranch- Fallon always seems very keen on customer satisfaction. I'll ask if she remembers the Katherine Morley incident. Maybe there was some miscommunication . . .

  6. That's sweet of you. I actually didn't speak to her. I spoke to a man there. I used to work with Ron, but he's apparently not there anymore. I do prefer their roses over Rose Story Farm, for the variety...and those Pieter B roses are miraculous!
