Nostalgia Flowers is a Flower Boutique that reflects my passion and love for flowers.
Flowers are an essential part of the celebration of life with the joy they bring to us, it is almost impossible to be sad when you are looking at a flower. We all need joy in our lives, and flowers bring us much more than just that, since they are not just flowers but a statement.
They have the power to immediately transform a space. Once they make their presence in an environment, whether a humble one or the most beautiful one, the energy in that room transforms almost immediately. As stunning as art is, an old tapestry or a piece of furniture will remain a dead object in comparison to a flower, which is so very much alive.
Flowers have been part of us since the dawn of humanity, it is a universal way of saying anything you would like to say to somebody else from “I love you”, to “I’m sorry”. They give us a unique way of communicating without words, they don’t particularly care if you are rich or poor since they talk directly to and from your heart.
In a fast-paced world of instant gratification, I’m aiming at inspiring you to slow down and enjoy the power of the flower world.
They might be short in life but the message is forever.
“When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not.”
– Georgia O’Keeffe
I have always had and very much still have an absolute passion for flowers, whether outside or inside, they are a great source of joy and gratitude for me.
I love gardens with lots and lots of flowers, flowers that I can pick and bring into my home so I can carry on enjoying their beauty and fragrance. When I was small on my way back from school in my hometown, I always asked my grandfather, who used to pick me up, to stop at the market square where Lucrecia and Paulita, the granny and mom of a friend of mine called Ana, had a little flower shop.
I just loved to watch them putting the flowers together in beautiful ways for the customers waiting. It was a very little space but absolutely packed with all sorts of beautiful flowers. I used to think that one day I would love to be doing the same!
As well as being an avid gardener and passionate about flowers, I’m an enthusiastic reader. I teach and practice yoga, enjoy long walks in the early morning with Valentino, the love of my life, my gorgeous boy dog. Our life is also shared with Luna the cat, the sweetest of creatures. Besides flowers, dogs and cats I am a proud mother and grandmother.
