When I first saw these whimsical gypsy garden goodies at the gift show this past January I couldn’t wait for spring to come so I could create my own fairy land! I love the creativity and endless options of containers you can use to create these magical vignettes.  You could make something small to go on your front porch or have fun with a larger display on your back deck.  And what a fun .

Our halls have been decked and the trees are full of snowmen, santas and more.  With so many cute ornaments to choose from, it’s hard to pick just one, but here are a few team firefly wants to take home.  (available at our Rochester & Berkley locations) Snowmen always make me smile. I love their cute little carrot nose and top hat and like snowflakes, no two are ever alike! I’ve lost count on .

A flock of these feathered friends made their way to our shops recently & I decided a few of them had to come home with me… but where could I create a spot for them in my home? Here’s what I came up with… And ta-da… a whimsical spring arrangement that livens up my dining room table.  Another great ornament option for this type of tree is decorated blown-out Easter eggs.

Sadly, snow is still covering grass that is waiting patiently to turn green & winter coats are still taking up space in the hall closets, BUT our whimsical world has spring on speed dial! Sometimes a fresh new pillow , a perky piece of art or a vase filled with a few buds is all it takes to help get through the gray days of March. What time is it?  Time for sunny skies .
