Shop Love: "Rook & Rose" in Victoria

While visiting Victoria in February, I discovered a darling flower shop that I've been meaning to blog about.  It's a total treasure!  If I lived in Victoria, I'd buy flowers here every week!

Welcome to Rook & Rose
(visit their website here):

The young owner is a flower styling goddess!  
You can't teach style like this - subtle, graceful, feminine, old world, utterly beautiful arrangements:

Who can resist a little bundle of prettily-wrapped spring flowers?:

So many variations, all exquisitely colour-coordinated...

Bright colours are also available (sunflowers in February make me seriously happy...)

Or maybe a bundle of roses suits your fancy...

I was smitten by these tiny bouquets in vintage-looking bottles, so I bought one for my hotel room!  It added so much cheer on a dreary February evening...

So when you're in Victoria, drop by Rook & Rose and be inspired!

Happy shopping!


  1. Gorgeous! $22 seems more than a fair price. Love how she sets them out on those black tables.

  2. Very pretty flowers but I, too, am attracted to the tables. I thinks it's great that you bought flowers for your hotel room. What a great way to pamper yourself!

  3. My favorites are the roses that you purchased in what appears to be an old perfume's darling. Perhaps I can duplicate it at home somehow.

    And you can, too, since you must still have the bottle!

  4. Hi, Terri - Cool shop! And great name :-) In addition to all the pretty flowers, I love how the shop is decorated and styled. Have a wonderful weekend!!

    These types of shops are a real 'find' and how wonderful that so many exist!

  6. A flower addict's dream shop, I would happily go broke just to spend time here-great find!

  7. Hi Terri!

    How are you doing? How are your headaches? I hope that you are enjoying a nice summer and that you are feeling a little better! I love your pics! You always find such cute little things! I really feel for the cat too, poor little one :(

    We are down in Spain enjoying the sun and my little one just turned one on saturday, I can't believe how time flies. Anyway, I just wanted to say hi and that I was thinking of you and hoping that you are doing well!

    Hugs, Susanne

  8. Love these colors, combinations. She truly is a goddess. They look lovely. Wish I could go there.
