In an ideal world I'd hand-deliver to my flower-loving friends copies of Mrs. Delany and Her Circle (the new book that celebrates female accomplishments in the 18th century by surveying Mary Delany's remarkable craft work, including her amazing cut-paper botanicals that blur the line between fine art and craft) paired with ravishing arrangements from Saipua. But that would exceed my budget for holiday presents. A nice thought though. Maybe someone reading this will be inspired to do his or her own twist on the idea.

Little Augury, who received the book as a gift, sent in another possible pairing: Roost's hand-cast brass myrtle.
