Lately, I have been loving green.
I got home from work last night and saw a package waiting for me on the table.
I ordered some numbers on-line from BHLDN and some art supplies from Paper Source so I thought the box was from one of them.
But, I was wrong.
I had forgotten that I had won a Giveaway from Primp and, in the package was this sweet little green heart basket.
With the weekend ahead, I stopped at one of my favorite shops, American Home and Garden,
for a bit of shopping therapy and some ideas on how to display my sweet little basket.
It seems like months since I have been in the shop.
My friend Kathee of Chateau et Jardin writes on her blog about the many changes in the shop.
Jennifer Grey of The Old Painted Cottage just opened a booth in the shop.
As usual, AH&G was filled with wonderful eye candy and green was everywhere.
I love the green cabinet with the number tags and wish I had a place for the great little green ironing board.
I have a little wooden box that I want to paint and it might just end of with a number painted across it.
The little green desk is so cute, but alas no space.
Nor is there space for the green butcher block or dresser.
A vintage garden chair reminded me of a chair my dad used to sit in out in our garden when I was a child.
One long table made from a door and two sewing machine bases would be wonderful in a creative work space.
Chippy green shutters would be totally fun, but our walls are filled with Steve's art which leaves no place for the shutters.
I love, love, love the cast iron sink filled with ivy.
It would look great hanging on the exterior wall of the house in the garden.
Until Steve's shoulder is out of a sling, no house projects will be happening.
A table which mounts to the wall and just two legs to hold it up would fit right into my hallway.
There were so many things to look at, but I had two limitations on my shopping -
I only had change for a half hour on the parking meter
I was in Steve's little car so I couldn't buy anything big.
I settled on three simple things
The number knobs are for a little box I will paint soon.
The parsley stake will go in the garden tomorrow.
And I have no idea what the green piece is (for flowers? ) nor do I have an idea what I will do with it.
But, I thought my little green basket needed a friend.
As I was finishing my purchase I saw the woman behind me was buying a cloche and remembered that I have been wanting one.
I took one last stroll through the store to see if I could find a small cloche, but no luck.
One of the shopkeepers said she has a small one at home and will bring it in tomorrow.
Do I dare go back tomorrow with all that green calling to me?
