Field Trip—no permission slips needed!

One of my favorite field trips is to Boxwoods Gardens & Gifts here in Atlanta. They’ve just received a new shipment of antiques from France, and I’ve been looking for an excuse to have a visit. Excuse: I need my hair done and and Carter Barnes is right next door. Really, I don’t need an excuse—it just makes me feel better to have one. I can not wait to show you their new fabulous finds. Warning–you may feel the need to shop!

Stunning pyramid of plants available in the Conservatory

Hydrangea ready to be potted in arrangements or sold separately

Orchids ready and looking for a new home

Beautiful orchid arrangement

Great driftwood table and decorative cold frames

Love this Buffet and the old shutters used behind the mirror

Beautiful symmetry in this wall arrangement.

Stunning for an Entry Hall

The new Green room—full of treasures and finds

Notice the faux molding—oh my! And another great arrangement ready to go home …

Table full of small treasures … something for everyone

This room always Wows me–the hanging windows and chandeliers are gorgeous!

For my next renovation–or yours?

Lamps, china and all that glitters—innovative displays in every direction

More, more, more–yes, please

I hope you enjoyed this little field trip as much as I did. Remember now–if you need to lift your spirits, go to Boxwoods and be inspired!
