Botanical Prints: No Watering Required

What now adorns our walls and other objects started over 4000 years ago with the scientific purpose of helping to identify plants, especially across regions where language could be a barrier.  These antique natural history reproductions are relevant today for the detailed beauty of the artwork.  Botanical prints are a great way to bring nature into the room and they go well with this year’s botanical inspired color trend.   Here a few way to add botanical prints to your home.

The Flora Forager

In this week’s Arts & Crafts blog I would like to focus on an artist that I discovered in the Country Living Creativity issue back in January.  Bridget Beth Collins is a botanical artist who creates art from nature – literally.  Her love of the Pacific Northwest’s mossy waterfalls and woodlands drew her to this art form.  Her charming and whimsical prints are perfect for a nursery, child’s room, craft room and if you are lucky enough to have one – your She Shed!  You can learn more about Bridget Beth Collins at
