A botanical thank you.

Posted on: June 12, 2011

I have always loved botanical art.  There is something about it that appeals to me.  Maybe its the historical feel, or the realism.  Perhaps the white background, with the focus wholly on the plant/flower/seed.

Whatever it is, when I saw this desk diary marked down to a bargain price, I had to have it.

Australian Botanical Artists National Trust Desk Diary

I have wanted for a while now something beautiful to pop in my parcels as a way to say thank you.  Nothing has seemed quite right until now.

These will be just perfect! So simple and effective.  A few minutes with my trusty paper trimmer & voila!  Gorgeous thank you cards ready to go.

The drawings were all done by Australian artists.  They are all recent creations, not a collection of historical drawings as I first thought.  The collection is the work of The Botanical Art School of Melbourne, which is run by Jenny Phillips.  The school runs classes teaching the wonderful art of Botanical drawing and painting.  I love being surprised.  I am so glad that this art is not one from the past, but still being created.
