Bidding adieu to Christmas can be bittersweet. I wish it could last forever! However, with the New Year comes promise and a renewed sense of enthusiasm for me, does it for you? Have you made any resolutions?
Just prior to Christmas, I was out shopping at my local Williams Sonoma. I am a fan of the store, as well as its affiliates Pottery Barn and West Elm. While there, I happened upon these gorgeous preserved cypress topiary balls,
Fast forward to yesterday. I was perusing at one of my favorite haunts, TaiPan Trading, and I happened across these gorgeous boxwood topiary trees. They are genuine preserved boxwood, and I was so excited that each only cost $22, plus I had a coupon for 25% off of one. SOLD! I adore the rustic little cement pots each tree is nestled in....perfect for my house which has a cement planter in the foyer.
I also snapped up this darling little metal long-length bucket....too cute.
they also look great in the kitchen, where I placed them in a serving tray I bought long ago but no longer use for serving. I usually use the tray for little vignettes around the house, but here it works well because of the contrasting color.
