Spring Blooms

Awake, thou wintry earth - Fling off thy sadness! Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth Your ancient gladness! ~Thomas Blackburn, "An Easter Hymn"

Wonderful Spring Things...

I think everyone is welcoming the warm weather and signs of Spring. Why not Spring up your home as well? Love this display full of nest and eggs, white opalescent tortoise glassware, and rod iron topiaries & rustic urns!
Aren't these egg prints striking and different? This Bethany Lowe vintage Easter girl is so sweet-looks like something that would be tucked away in my great-grandmothers closet-it looks so old and vintage...

J. Forks Design-Authentic American Jewelry

Drop by and see our case of our new J. Forks authentic American jewelry. American turquoise, burnt horn, spiny oyster, and Navajo glass beads make up the story of this beautiful collection! Pendants are extra-large and very stunning! Growing up in the small, south-Texas town of Beeville fostered an early love of all things natural for jewelry designer, Jenny Forks. With the philosophy, "Dare to be Bold," the ambitious mother of two has created thousands of unique pieces since the opening of her first store in Boerne, Texas in 2003.

Black Antique Chinese Apothecary Cabinet

This fabulous old Chinese apothecary cabinet is so unusual and would be great for the avid jewelry collector. The old rustic pulls and scrubbed black antique finish make it a very striking piece!

English Inspired Farm & Garden Cream Dishes

Love love these new dishes in that have a Farm & Garden English feel to them! Beautiful scalloped edges-the bread & butter have tiny chocolate wheelbarrows on them. These would be fantastic to fill-in and mix with other dishes for Spring!
These would be great mixed with the chocolate Italian Vietri. The large platters have a farm scene on them. So charming!
