Oh! What a Beautiful Book!

Oh! What a Beautiful Book!

Hi there,

Thanks for popping in. It’s been a long time coming, this Groovi floral alphabet. But it’s coming together very nicely now. 26 pretty little letters, each depicting flowers pertaining to their letter. As you can see though, we have added upper and lower case letters to each plate too.

Paul and I are putting the finishing touches on the demos ready for Sunday evening, and today I think I’d like to show you the quintessence of teamwork.

A couple of months ago, we split the letters up, gave the Groovi Design Team members a couple of letters each, and asked them to illuminate the letters they had. The only rule was to keep it 7”x 7”. All the letters came in by and by. We built a book to display them in, and it is absolutely peach. Just beautiful. Each letter has its own personality, and the combined masterpiece is pretty exceptional….

I won’t show you all of them, but I really want to sing about the team effort!

A for Allium or Agapanthus
F for Fuchsia
J for Japonica
L for Lily of the Valley
O for Orchid
R for Rambling Rose
Y for Yarrow

They have been in production for months, too. My brother is just about ready to audition for Alan Titchmarsh’s job! We have a very tidy stock of them, so I do hope you like them!

Thing is, you really do need them all when they’re an alphabet. So on launch night they will be available at a greatly reduced price as a full set including the storage folder.

And just in case you aren’t sure what all the flowers are, we’ve included a pretty index in each box!

Time to get ready for Ally Pally now.

See you there, see you on HOCHANDA, see you soooon!

Love & Hugs

  2. Wow what beautiful works of art. Love the idea of extra letters. Paul said in his show last weekend to watch out for the Sunday ODS & he was not wrong.

  3. Wow, I have to say these are magnificent Barbara. I’m not a parcher but will look forward to the introduction of the stamps in due course. I know they will fly! x

  14. Hi Barb,
    These are truly gorgeous and I know full well that they will be falling into my basket. Really looking forward to the shows I must say. The DT have done you proud as well. I’m sure that there will be a super quick sellout – possibly even record breaking. Missed Linda’s shows today as I was at hospital all day with Dave, but I did record them so I’ll be watching them shortly. Love and hugs,Alison xxxx
