I've been toiling all week in the yard like a tireless garden gnome; raking, weeding, mowing, weeding, trimming, weeding . . . the list of chores seemed interminable, and I was a very very grumpy gnome. Just when I was going to dig myself a hole and burrow in it, some very cheerful things appeared:
Not only did our garden yield gorgeous peonies, but the mailman brought me a very exciting early birthday present from three very thoughtful garden fairies.
What is this exciting present? Well, it arrived in a chic faux bois box . . .
and inside was a brochure for a certain charming garden center that happens to be owned by a certain store I love . . .
and below the brochure was a faux bois gift card!
Great friends are people who know just exactly what you'd love, who anticipate desires before you even articulate them. And my great friends realized that what I'd love is an excuse to shop at Terrain, the garden center that was recently acquired by Anthropologie.
Maybe I'll assemble my own little terrarium:
