Wooden Blooms - Flower Buds

Alright, let's dive into the fern-tastic world of symbolism! The fern isn't just a leafy friend; it's the key to eternal youth, a ticket to new beginnings, a hug from the family tree, and a secret handshake of humility. Yup, this little plant has a whole fan club with different meanings in every corner of the world! For the indigenous Maori of New Zealand, the fern shouts, "Hello, new life and fresh starts!" And over in Japan, it's like the fern is whispering, "Family and future generations, you can count on me!" But that's not all—Victorians are giving the fern a virtual high-five, saying, "Hey, you're the epitome of being down-to-earth and real!" Now, let's talk about the Fern Curl—it's the cool kid in the floral block, standing at a pint-sized 17cm tall. Yep, short, sweet, and ready to rock your flower arrangement game! And oh, delicate alert! These pieces might seem like they're made of air, but they're actually super delicate. Handle with care, my friend, like you're cradling a baby bird made of whispers. Did someone say wood grains? Get ready for a gallery of nature's artistry, where no two pieces are like long-lost twins. We're talking unique wood grains that are like snowflakes, each with its own story to tell. And guess what? We're totally Team Character—those quirks make our wooden wonders shine like the stars they are! Hold on, we're not done. Each piece is like a canvas that got a VIP treatment of hand-dyed colors using Eco wooden inks. Oh, and we've got our eco-friendly badge from the FSC, so we're the cool kids of the forest party. But here's the scoop: colors might have a little dance-off and show up slightly different from the photos. Blame it on the mood lighting and the artistic vibes of wood grains. It's like a color carnival that nature's throwing just for you! In a nutshell (or should we say a nutshell-sized fern pot?), it's all about embracing the fern's symbolism, cherishing the delicate details, and celebrating the woodsy wonderland of colors. So, go on, grab your magnifying glass (or maybe just your curiosity), and let's explore the ferniverse together!

International orders continue to be impacted, If your package is delayed by more than 14 business days past expected arrival date, please open an enquiry with AUS Post directly.

Some domestic orders are being impacted and we are finding no rhyme or reason as to how delayed they are as some routes are the same as usual, and others are much much slower. We are finding that parcels going to WA, VIC, TAS and SA from Coffs Harbour are taking a longer amount of time, due to the length of distance along with the pressures of the postal system. 

Things you can do:

1. Always check your address is entered 100% correctly when placing an order to ensure it has a direct route to you

2. Track your parcel via the AusPost or Sendle

3. Enquire or contact AusPost or Sendle once a good few days has passed since your due date. Delays can be up to 14 working days at the moment I am finding (this doesn't include public holidays like Easter long weekend, Anzac Day etc)

4. Be kind to your customer service agents via the business you are purchasing from and delivery partners. Delays are out of our control and are to be expected during this current time.

Sending love, health and lightness. Soph xx
