Refresh Your Home With a Touch of Spring

For those of you that don't know. I own and operate a gift shop as well as working part time in another gift shop. Yes, I get to play with fun things all day long. :-) I'm often told I have the best job in the world. Most days I would have to agree.. lol I've had a few emails requesting some pictures of the new Spring merchandise. So, how about a virtual shopping trip today?
I've been busy moving every display in the shop. Getting in new merchandise and trying to get it displayed. There's still lots coming in so you'll have another chance to take a peak at a later time.. But for now... here we go.
As you enter you'll find a table with a bouquet of green grasses banked with candlesticks on one side and a great glass dome on the other side. See even carpet balls here. :-) Some of the finer designers call these orbs. I think I still prefer calling them carpet balls. lol
Most everyone loves candles and I'm no exception. You can also see the great lights with the sleeves you can change out for the seasons. The bottom shelves house candle warmers for those of you that have small children and don't want to worry about flames. Slip your candle into the warmer and let it do the work for you.

The perfect sign for all of us.. Follow your Heart....

A table full of white for those of you who love the shabby chic look.

Isn't the white ceramic urn gorgeous? In front you'll find the metal urn. I think a great compliment for each other.

The metal pitcher is for decorative use only, sure wouldn't want to drink anything out of it. Isn't the white metal rooster just the cutest little thing? (You can click on the picture for a close up of the darling lamp and it's bling).

A set of 3 heavy metal candle holders. Don't you love the scroll work on them?
You can see here I chose to put a leaf ball on one of them to shake things up a bit. :-)
Another display of goodies..Ahhhhhh something for the rooster lovers. A close up of the rooster. Don't you love his colors and attitude? He's painted on a wooden tray . A multi-function tray. You could hang him or put him in a wonderful plate holder. I think he would make quite a statement in any one's home.
And for those bunnies lovers. :-)
Laugh blocks to help you remember to laugh each day. Wouldn't they be great in a baby's nursery?
How about an Italian urn full of forsythia and some whimsical foliage? You can even throw in some Pansy's for good measure.
Apothecary jars are the most wonderful things I've run across in along time. Great decorative basics for any room. I chose to fill these with eggs. But I can see a birds nest as well as many other things. What do you see inside yours?
Mr. Grasshopper is out of a series of bunnies I've decided to carry this year. Isn't he great? Doesn't necessarily say Easter.. to me, right now it says
Spring. :-)
Mrs. Purpee' is all decked out in her finest. I wonder where she might be going? Wouldn't this look great in a bookshelf or on a kitchen counter? I love the saying.
This cute little couple is Mr. and Mrs. Petal.
Can you guess what this little cutie is?
Here's a little closer shot.. do you have it figured out yet?
Yes.. you have it.. Place card holders! Wouldn't they be darling on a tablescape? I'm sure in the future you'll see some of them on one of my tablescapes. :-)
I hope you aren't too exhausted or bored. And I hope you found a bit of inspiration from your shopping trip today. I hope you enjoyed yourself today as much as I enjoyed having you... hugs ~lynne~
