Small offerings, modest treasures, given freely to those you are fond and fondest of, purely for the pleasure of the giving. Food, thrifty finds and found natural treasures are my favourite offerings. Often a gift can sit in waiting for the right moment to be given or for the right person to come along. It's funny (and lovely) when simple visual cues, such as these pressed summers hydrangeas and winters violet in this bowl, can stir deeper thoughts. As happened when I gently placed the flowers onto the base of the china and began to think about the art of gift giving.
