Why I Don't Wish I Was a Tree

If you've been following my instagram feed (@thegentleflower) you'll have noticed that it snowed here on Thursday (and Friday, Saturday, Sunday...). I woke up to lots and lots of snow on Thursday morning. I was not happy. I hate snow with a passion.

Today when I took out the trash my pants got all wet afterwards from all the snow, and the lid on one of the trash cans was frozen stuck to the can. Snow even makes recycling hard.

But do you know who I feel really sorry for when it snows? All the flowers and trees. Imagine being a tree, having to be outside all year, with meters of snow weighing you down for 3/4 of the year. That must be horrible. And cold. And wet. They never get a break. I look at them when the wind is blowing, and they're shivering the poor things. I'm so happy I'm not a tree.

So to say a thanks to those trees out there, sticking it out through winter, spring, summer and fall (did anyone else just sing the theme to Gilmore Girls when they read that? No? Ok. I'm probably the only one that knows it by heart.) I'd like to give you a 15% off discount (also because I love you guys and because I would really like to send you a snow-filled package with some goodies ;) kidding about the snow.). Enter coupon code DIESNOWDIE at check out (in spirit of saving the trees). The coupon code is valid until Friday at midnight, so go and shop our store now! (Be sure to get your Christmas presents in time!)

Have a lovely Sunday, and I hope your trees aren't as sad as mine.

What Would You Do?

I found this quote on pinterest today and it really made me think. Fear holds us back in too many ways. We're afraid of taking risks, telling people how we really feel, afraid of spending too much time or money on something, afraid of caring too much or caring too little. We're afraid of what others think, but at the same time afraid that we'll regret not doing something because of what others think.

Why let fear dictate our lives? 

What would you do if you weren't afraid?
My list is growing longer the more I think about it.
Let's make the list shorter, and do the things that scare us the most.
What's the worst that can happen?

New Products Made of Sunshine

Presenting.... Mini Garden Pinks Brooches!!!

I've been working on lots of Mini Garden Pinks Brooches lately. They are oh-so adorable, and I just love wearing and making them! I love small, cute, colorful things- especially accessories ;) Don't they just put a huge smile on your face?!

So far, only the orange one is uploaded, but they are available in the colours you see in the first picture.

Ruffled Ribbon Necklaces {new products}

Ruffled Ribbon Necklace in Hot Pink

I've just completed a 14 page long paper on ethics. There's a lot to do in uni, but I really like uni so far! There hasn't been a lot of blogging lately, but there will be an update on what I've been up to lately here soon!

But for now, I'd like to share a new product with you :) I haven't uploaded them to Etsy yet, there are still some finishing touches to be made.

However, please let me know in the comments if you'd be interested in buying one. Or if you'd like to see it in another colour :)

Ruffled Ribbon Necklace {in the making} in Mint Green
Have a great week :D
