La la Laurie!



Oh happiness and how the world seems to just line up perfectly sometimes and that's how I feel about collaborating with my dear and very talented friend Laurie Cinotto! I'm so happy to be presenting her trunk show La La Laurie at Flutter on Saturday April 4th. Laurie and I are friends from those early days in Seattle (can you believe 15 years ago!). We met working at our wonderful neighborhood flower shop on Capital Hill. Being both from the midwest me from Kansas and she from Iowa, we instantly had a midwest connection along with a few other similarities, like our metal head banging youth (she's going to kill me for saying that!) She's always been an inspiration to me with her art, flowers, crafts, her amazing eye for junk, design & display talents, dedication to those kitties and her sweet and inspiring outlook on life.

Flutter Presents La La Laurie

Laurie Cinotto of La La Laurie will be revealing a fanciful collection of corsages, boutonnieres and bouquets. Her spring collection is hand crafted using imported papers and ribbons,  buttons and vintage notions.  It's lively and bright, filled with bunnies and birds, feathers and flowers.     The corsages and boutonnieres are for every day wear and dress up occasions.  The bouquets can accent your home, or be carried by a bride. 

Laurie Cinotto is an artist, turned florist, turned artist again. She enjoys creating delicate things for you to wear, and objects to dress your home. Even though she’s not a florist anymore, she still finds inspiration in the glorious colors and textures found in flowers. She has a fondness for old things , and loves incorporating vintage bits into her work.

This is her very first trunk show, and she’s thrilled to be collaborating with long time friend, Flutter’s proprietress, Cindy Rokoff.

Love them! I worked for a florist in high school and making the corsages and boutonnieres were my favorites to work on. These versions never die and are infinitely more beautiful!
