WeLcoMe J*A*N*U*A*R*Y ChiPPy-SHaBBy STyLe!*!*!


January Seems to always last forever "in my neck of the woods" - here in Wisconsin...
I like to *LiFt-My-SpiRiTs* with Fresh Flowering Plants!!!



So Thankful that the S*U*N has been shining for the past few days! - makes such a world of difference for me!!  I'm just NOT a Winter Person...  With everything dormant outside at this time of year, I like to lift my spirits with small vignettes/displays, that have Live Plants, Flowering Bulbs, & Fresh Stem Flowers...    With all due respect, the FAUX versions just don't do it for me!  I find great joy in nurturing these live plants with occasional pruning & watering, along with the anticipation of a bloom beginning to open...



TABLE~TOP GREENHOUSES
like the one pictured here, make for an eye-catching display on a table, or perhaps a sideboard piece of furniture.  A Fab Fresh/Alive *Perk-Me-Up* Adornment...  I've sold quite a few of these greenhouses over the years...  LoVe this one's chippy-white base, along with it's lift-off top...

Signs of Hopefulness, knowing Spring will come in due time!
~* Fresh & Cheery *~
