Over the last ten years, I've been planting in our garden with this Modern Country Bouquet in mind. This is a look that with a little know-how, a little magic, you can totally make your own. This is what I'll be sharing with you over the next few weeks.

But to start us off, wouldn't it be great to read a book completely dedicated to Vintage Flowers?
