Greenhurst Nursery #16

Can you tell how much I adored this little area since I keep coming back to it? Yes, it was charming with its little stove and vintage bistro set, which was covered with the most delicious stuff so much that I couldn't get a picture of it. It was a tiny space - about the size of a kitchen in a house but crammed with delicious stuff AND people.

A clearer view of some of those hanging faux desserts. Tiny faux bundt cakes hanging.

And cookie cutters with penguins on top, little cake square desserts with fruit and leaves on top......

Giant cookie ornies. There were also plates to match those cookies. Chocolate dipped strawberries! *Sigh*................

Peppermint candy plates on a pretty red pedestal stand......

Stepping out of the kitchen and into a french country display of a dining room and storage units in that style.........

Aren't these simply adorable if you want a french style Christmas? All in the colors reminiscent of France.

Faux lemons and pomegranates in apothecary jars.....

Penguin cookie jar........

The "cookie" plates hung on a horizontal plate hanger. Uuuuuuh, I had to look over this lady's head to take the pix. I never ever told anyone to "get out of the way"! Waaaay toooo rude. Every single person did when they saw I was doing a photo shoot but I never told them to.

This would go in my office/painting room wonderfully! I'm hoping they have an "After Christmas Sale" and that will be mine if it's still there.

I cannot tell you how much lovelier this is in person. The berries were bright true red but the lighting and camera played havoc with the colors in this area. It was very dim and had incandescent lighting so it was harder to find the best setting.

Seems like I've shown you this lamp before but just in case I haven't, here it is again. Just gorgeous!

More hanging ornies apropos for french country style holiday decorating......grapes and wine casks.... how cute is that?!

Can't you just see Lucy stomping on these grapes?! Lucille Ball of "I Love Lucy" fame.......remember that episode?????

"Peppermint" pillows..........well, that's what they remind me of anyway.

More holiday plates.

I've been going around telling hubs to "Don't get your tinsel in a tangle!" the past week or so. LOL

Blingy goblet.....

More plates.........

In a few days you'll see the last of the tour. And if you have a couple of thousand dollars...........well, we'll keep that for the last post, sweet chicks! ;-)

  4. Connie:

  5. Connie I am in love with half the things on this one post... Still lovin the place... Thanks for posting it...Have a great afternoon


  6. I think I want to live in the Greenhurst Nursery - just for this month I might hide in the Christmas you think they would notice another little elf running around??

    Great tour and photos Connie.

  7. Loved the tour as always...amazing place to favorite is the faux deserts!

  8. Those faux bundt cakes on the cake plate ornaments are the best!

  9. I see I am not the only one who likes to shoot photos of goodies in the shops. I find that if I take a picture I can study the items more closely at home on my computer and enjoy them all over again.
    Not to mention that it helps me remember where I saw something if I want to go back for it or tell a friend about it.


Comments are so nice and I thank all of you that leave one for me.
