Betsey's Discovery Story
The Palace of HolyroodHouse, once the former home of Mary Queen Of Scots, is one of my favorite travel destinations. This ranking is not so much because of its interior room displays, but more so because of the surrounding walled gardens, open parkland and rolling hills. Hollyroodhouse has been an area of outdoor sporting events for over 500 years. Mary Queen of Scots practiced her archery, hawking, and tennis skills in the walled garden.
In the 17th century they createdThe Psychic Garden, as a place to teach botany, and filled it with many species of heather, native to the Scottish moorlands.
Today these spectacular miniature fields of heather, in various rich shades of purple, can be seen as the inspiration behind Mudroom’s Holyrood House Topiaries and Posies.
Mudroom’s “heather” arrangement are actually meticulously hand-made in Sri Lanka. Female artisans boil, crush and freeze dry sorghum seeds to make each individual bundles. Next, they gather the base in French Toile Paper and tie it off with a raffia bow.
Just as the heather species enchanted the Palace, these dried florals will bring beautiful hues of fresh color into your Mudroom... and an ode to peaceful winds blowing across the wide open Scottish moorlands.
These classics are in excellent condition and cool your drinks, hold ice, and look awesome...just as as they did in the 1960's.
What about putting a few bottles of their favorite drink in this and adding a bow?
Please note that the BEND in THE LID is how they were manufactured for easy lift off.
