Happy Memorial Day

It's nice to have a holiday weekend right about now, even with rain and thunderstorms in the forecast. 

For people in the states who are traveling today, take note of the words of advice below from the Mass DPW.  I couldn't have said it better myself.

Thrifting :: Not Much to See Here Editition

I haven't had much time to poke around thrift shops lately but did spy a couple of nice art deco pieces last month.  I love the egg and dart trim and the veneer patterns on the second piece.




This glass fixtures casts really nice light.  The base wasn't the greatest but that can be changed.


Spot anything good yourself lately or have the pickings been slim everywhere?

Fruit Trees

Lately I've been a bit obsessed with fruit trees.  This is a bit of a problem when you live in New England and it's freezing outside from September to May, you can't just plant some in the yard.  Fortunately, for my birthday last year, my sister bought me a Kaffir Lime tree.  It was about 3" tall at the time and it has grown nicely over the past year.

I was thinking I'd like a Meyer lemon and key lime tree because they are miniature in size and I can keep them indoors so, while I was out picking up dry cleaning last Saturday afternoon, I thought I'd swing down to Connecticut and visit the greenhouse my previous tree came from {my sister was smart enough to order it online rather than drive, but I decided I wanted to pick my trees out in person}.

The greenhouse was a lot of fun to visit even if you do need a machete to make your way through it, it's so stuffed with plants.  At one point, I had to jump into this orange tree to let people pass by.




you can see the rogue lemon grass stalk in the corner




I think my fancy new trees {at 3" tall they are really only a couple of leaves} will get along quite nicely with my orchids and money tree that I bought on the side of the road.

Louis Vuitton Window Display :: Box of Chocolates

I can't help but feel like I'm missing something with this Louis Vuitton window display.  It looks like a fancy box of chocolates to me, but part of me also thinks it looks like something else.  What that is, I have no idea.  I do know if I got a box of chocolates that was this expensive, I would never eat it....
