This week, we've had several days below freezing. Now, that doesn't seem so awful to many of you, but you'll have to admit that for Tampa, Florida, this is a little cold. That said, we moved here from a colder climate, and this weather has only served to remind us of the holiday cycle--there's the build up to Thanksgiving, constant Christmas tunes, candles, and twinkling lights for a month, and then dread... Spring will not arrive for several cold months. Of course, "cold" is relative, and we feel for those farther from the equator, but still... it's a great time to cheer yourself up by bringing a little spring indoors. Shown here are a few of our new spring items, including a few pots from Campo de Fiori, which are already seeded with moss (and which will turn a luxurious velvety green in the summer with proper light and regular watering). Enjoy, and imagine a warm day...
A gorgeous hyacinth in a Campo tulip pot.
Flowers on a lion's foot centerpiece with mirrored center.
A boxwood heart hangs by a ribbon.
Our newest votives claim le jardin de Paris.
A stalwart Roman stands guard near the door.
And a candle-powered chandelier with beautiful glass teardrops hangs in the garden room.
Hopefully these images put a little spring in your heart. Warm wishes...
