Air plant terrarium

Have you been introduced to air plants yet? They are simple and sculptural, and for those two reasons I love them!  I have been using them in some of my "dry scape" terrariums lately.  And thanks to the stunning photo below, I have been day dreaming about using them in a future wedding. Any takers? The bouquet below was made by Carissa Jones of JL DESIGNS in Los Angeles. I absolutely love her work!!

As for air plants, I love them paired with driftwood, it's a match made in heaven! And why not add just a hit of color with some yellow craspedia. My coffee table is pretty happy right now with the new addition to the family. Although, he needs a name.....

Spring is in the air!

I was intending to do a longer post tonight but I don't think that's going to happen. My 2 year old has decided to stay up late (due to a late afternoon nap) and is now happily enjoying a piece of bread as I write. As for me, I think it will be early to bed tonight, I'm tired after a busy day of helping my best friend in the garden at her new house.  What fun it was though tearing out all the overgrown branches. It is such a great time of year to be working in the garden. Time to tidy up the yard and eagerly await all that spring has to offer. A few colors have started to arrive in my garden, yellow witch hazel, pink rhododendron, and pale green hellebores!  After having a couple months with no garden flowers in the house I am excited to get snipping. And don't forget, now is the time to bring in some forsythia to force into bloom. 

My little one is finally asleep now, so time for bed fellow flowers lovers. Happy Spring!

Blush Bridal Boutique

Wedding season is in the air.......

 Blush Bridal Boutique has so many lovely and beautiful things you can't help wanting to get married all over again just to get another dress!

Not only do they sell dresses but some other really cute items too. Like these canvas bags that say "LOVE". What a sweet gift for bridesmaids, or I'm even thinking the kids for Valentine's!

Apparently the owners are quite the crafty ladies. Many of the items you see such as the flower hair pins, heart cards and ring bearer pillows were lovingly made by them.

Also hand made by the owners, these pretty garters...... there was a whole bucket of them to choose from! This one caught my eye.

The owners of this store have done such a great job making their space sparkle. I loved all the decor, down the the typewriter which held their business cards.

This month, the girls at Blush Bridal Boutique are kind enough to help me out with my February give away!  So I would like to say a big thank you to Emily, Mary and all the girls in the store! And to find out more about this month's giveaway go to my Facebook page.

Oh and one more thing that I loved in the store was a trunk full of treasures, which very well may be a great hidden secret in town......
