We met Clare, of Achillea Flowers on Mill Lane at the West Hampstead Christmas Market. The mom and daughter shop is bursting with beautiful flowers that are not your typical Florist offerings. Bursting with what I can only describe as vintage chic with a pinch of countryside natural organic beauty, the shop is located slightly outside reality. You step in and surrounding the masses of perfumed flowers, there are little antiques, vases, teapots and various knick knacks collected over the years.
It reminds me very much of the movie Practical Magic, where the witchy sisters had the most insanely beautiful decorated house complete with a green house for their potion plants.
Long story short, you can pick up a Melinart watercolour there now with your trendy bouquet if you are local to West Hampstead!! We even offer the possibility to order custom paintings of whatever antiques are in the shop!
I made these little business signs to put under the first watercolours to be presented there. Hope Achillea's clients will like the paintings!
