Belle Nursery~

I recently visited my favorite nursery, Briggs Garden and Home, for some spring inspiration!  This place really gets my creative juices flowing especially for planning my patio and once the weather ever warms up,  gardening ideas.  I love the unique merchandise they offer; from beautiful reclaimed wood items, unique light fixtures, organic water features, coral, terrariums, fresh lavender, and a huge array of greenery, just to name a small few. 

A cute little cafe in the back offers delicious lattes and yummy breakfast/lunch sandwiches!  The best time to visit, in my opinion is the late spring-summer, the amazing selection of gardening plants and flowers in the exterior of the property is impressive, it surely will excite the green thumbs!  The kiddos will enjoy it also, with a cute swing area and a sweet & ginormous pig, yes a real pig, to say hello to!  If you live in the area, a must visit!!

Design in Motion~

 Happy World Water Day!  I love using the naturally beautiful element of water in home design.  I don't know about you but it has a calming effect on me.   Some expressions of the flowing form can be seen in art, water features, wall decor, & lighting, just to name a few...

"Storm Colors" Artist Sally Breen

Zen Interior Space

Amazing Exterior Fountain
Wow, This is Wallpaper!
Water Drop Lighting-a magical feel!

Unfortunately not everyone, as we know, has access to clean water, thankfully many wonderful organizations are doing what they can to help.  One company I love is Ethos Water Fund!   It's my absolute favorite water, Ethos is sold at Starbucks, it's so crisp & clear of any after taste, I'm actually obsessed with it.  I tried to order in bulk, which led me to finding out about World Water Day.  The best part is they donate a portion of each bottle sold to help children receive clean water, please try a bottle!! 

To learn more about how you can help, visit!
Have a great weekend!!

Just look at the brick wall with vintage books perfectly imperfectly arranged!
