My life is to make everything around me beautiful.

Greenhurst Nursery #2

Stepping out of the conservatory back into another "room" we see all this wonderful stuff that looks so real you almost cut up the celery for your dressing on thanksgiving day! Even the leaves have the coloration of the real celery. Only feeling it gives it away.

Just one of many trees in this store. There's a cowboy tree I can't wait for you to see, but that's a bit later in the posts, my chickadees!! Just you wait. Hah..... I'm such a tease, but I don't want you to rush through it. I want you to savor the lusciousness of it and linger peacefully. I can't describe how beautiful this tree is in person though. They had a red rubber hose wrapped around it and garden implements, tulips, amaryllis, rusty ornaments and feathery plants stuck on the top as decorations on this tree! Just stunning!!!!

And pottery???? Oooooh my, just some of the most beautiful pots and statuary ever.

Remember these real looking plants are faux and so real looking you only know by touch! There are so many hanging racks of the most beautiful and unique ornaments that I couldn't count them all..... dozens though. Remember, this isn't a Christmas store; this is a NURSERY! I could spend a whole day in here easily.

Another beautiful arrangement. Look at the enlargement to see all the "fluff" around it: little birds, candles looking like leaves, faux bird eggs, moss covered statuary, that carrot pitcher in the background on a shelf, the CHICKENS!!!!!! Squeeeeeeal.... You all know how I love chickens!

Clocks were everywhere in this place. French looking ones, shabby ones, cowboy ones, just absolutely stunning. If I bought another clock though Love Bunny would shoot me for sure. I may have to overrule him though. I love clocks and have some rooms with 2 or 3 in them. Yep, true. Notice the vintage toy trucks, outdoor sink, CHICKENS(!) and faux fruit and plants.

Notice the vintage looking trogs up in the corner, the weathered looking clock, a faux sack of grain with plants coming out of it. This would look beautiful in a garden in our front yard. ;-) (Make note to self: sweet talk hubby when he gets home from his train club today, should be in very good mood!) ;-)

Same shelf, just different view. Lower down the shelving.

Just faux balls of greenery. Don't know what it is supposed to be but I do know it's beautiful. Notice they have different flooring throughout the nursery store. Rock, gravel, wood slatting that the dirt can be swept down through. My kinda floor, sweets!

That white "sun" plate on the wall would look wonderful on my living room walls when they get painted pink. I may have to get that one to hang high on the cathedral ceiling.

Remember, nothing real at all in this room. All faux but so real you won't know it until you touch. I did a LOT of touching this day! *Smile*.................

  5. Yeah!! I have a field trip just for me planned out. I love it all and only wished my pocketbook would allow me to dress my home that way, every day, all seasons, all year!


  6. Hey Connie!
    What fun to see all of the pretties in here. Oh, I just love the faux eggs...I have had a thing for them this year...that's the first thing I noticed on the table....I can scope 'em out a mile away. LOL! What a beautiful place this store is...I could wonder around in there all day, touching everything. I am so looking forward to Christmas and putting up the tree...the one in that making me look forward to doing that. It's so hard to believe that the season is right around the corner isn't it! Thanks for sharing more of your day at Greenhurst Nursery. Hope you have a great day!

  7. OMG!!! I could spend forever in this store with you... I saw a pickle ornament in the tree... we have had one for years... we placed it in the tree and the first one to find it on Christmas morning got an extra present... it was always a mad dash to see who would spot it first... LOL


  8. Hello Connie Dear!

    Looks like you had some fun shopping! I need to get out more! LOL! Wishing you a fun Halloween!


  9. I could get lost in this place and be one happy person. Oh, the damage I'd do my pocket book. lol!

  10. That is the most amazing store - I can't believe they are not real. How spectacular is that Garden Christmas tree?

  11. What a fabulous place! That celery is 2LIVE4! Usually faux flowers don't do too much for me, but I LOVE THAT CELERY!!!

    The red hose around the tree and garden implements -- what a great idea. Love it love it love it!
