Spring at Greenhurst Nursery

It was a sunny and cold day..........sounds like the opening of an Edgar Allen Poe novel, huh? Well, let me tell you it was definitely cold here in southwestern Idaho today but the sun shined brightly. Sooooo I decided to "doll up", go downtown to an antique store, lunch out and go to Greenhurst nursery.

They were transitioning into the spring decor so there wasn't much to show but it was a pleasure going there anyway.

Isn't this bouquet lovely. It is bright red and truly spring looking.

Green was sprouting all over and here's one little tablescape. I loved the color of green, too.

These little verdigris bird container was on my list to buy but I forgot to get it before leaving. I think that means I need to go back.

This was in the greenhouse and is an orchid. I love the beauty of orchids.

This amaryllis was stunning - white with pale pink tips.

Pretty red plant.

I showed this to friend and she chuckled. She still has 2 teenagers at home.

This is a little mirror with another spot reflected in the mirror. I thought it was cute but had no idea where I would put it in this house.

This was a comfy shoe but I'm trying to get back into "regular" shoes so passed them up. Very attractive on the foot though and comfy.

I looooooved this little purse but I like zippers and not foldovers so passed on it, but it's bright white and bright red and white polka dots.

Sasquatch foot!!! I think I need to clean my car carpet though.


  1. An antique store must be interesting place.
    These little verdigris birdcontainer is perfect for my garden.
    God bless you!

  2. Here in Ontario we are in the midst of yet another storm storm. I don't know we will be seeing any signs of Spring in the near future. Looking at your pretty bloggy pictures gives me hope. I like your shoes and I also like the pair you tried on.....I want those. Have a Happy Sunday.

  3. Oh, are those shoes one of your creations? I love your shoes! That boutique looks wonderful. I love to roam in shops like this, and that red one looks like something Penny from the Comforts of Home would love. Happy Sunday.

  4. What great stuff!! oh how we need spring!

  5. Love, love, love the shoes Connie and I sure enjoyed my trip to the store with you. :)

  6. I love your nursery and that sign is too funny!

    May God Bless You This Sunday

  7. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving your cheery comment. You sound like a lot of fun !!

    ......and thank you so much for your compliments on my artwork. I totally love painting but hardly have anytime to paint let alone try and sell it lOL Although I would love to.
    So, so far I don't sell it anywhere -no website or etsy. Mind you I'm thinking about etsy but really don't know how I would do it.

    Anyway, quite my rambling !! your blog and am looking forward to future visits.

  8. You definitely need to go back and get the cute little verdigris birds. I hate when I forget to go back for something...and it's happening more and more.

    Hmmm, a "Southerner" in Idaho? We'll work on it! ;-)


  9. Love this greenhouse! I'm very taken by the green and white table. It looks so fresh and springy! Can't wait until I can actually see green on the ground again!

  10. That looks like my kind of day! I hope you had fun!

  11. Hope you are having a good Sunday...xo bj

  12. trying this again. My first post was erased.
    I love that store, and know I would have a hard time "not" buying something.

  13. Blessings and sunshine to you sweet lady... enjoy everything life so freely gives....



  14. Oooooo look at all those pretties! That looks like a wonderful shoppe.

    Thanks for dropping by to see me. This is my first visit to your blog as well and I know I'll be back☺

  15. Hi Connie! I know I'd definitely go back for those darling mossy chicks! Too cute!! I really enjoyed shopping with ya! And I have to tell ya every time I see that avatar picture of yours I think of Samantha on Bewitched! (It was my favorite show when I was younger *winks*) Remember she was always perfectly attired and had a martini waiting for her husband Darren every time he came home?! You look just like her!Lol!

  16. Connie-
    Thanks to your lovely tutorials I learned how to change the comment description field--that's how you suddenly became a corn stalk-lol!

    Yes, I'm in the middle of nowhere, but just an hour's drive from the muddy Mississippi. Born into a farm family....

  17. Can't wait to see your post about spaces we create for ourselves. Have you seen some of those studios in that magazine??? Geeze louise! I'd love to have all of that inventory!!! The things I could make!!! But I am what I am and it doesn't get much better than that!!

  18. Okay, I am SO ready for spring after visiting Greenhurst Nursery with you!! And I love your pink shoes!!...Donna @ An Enchanted Cottage

  19. Oh, I so agree! That green bird container is a keeper. It's precious. Hope you bring it home next time. LOL
