I had the day off today because it is the Jewish new year and although I am not Jewish, my company is, so I reaped the benefits--L'chaim! It felt a tad indulgent having a day off after being away for a week so I figured I would spend the day with Marie (my "mother") to balance out my euphoria. I had plans to go the beach with her since she lives so close to it, but after I told her about my plans to grow my own garden she suggested we go to some nurseries to look around. I was game. We went to two and being that I am not one to impulsively purchase anything I didn't realize I didn't have my wallet until after it was time to pay for lunch. It squashed my garden plans (for today).
On the way home I stopped by a wonderful new nursery/boutique called 'Rolling Greens'. I doubted that I could afford anything in it but thought it might be fun to check out and get some ideas. Above is one of their many vignette's in their open store. It was Miss B. nirvana and made me want to open my own nursery like yesterday. There were some things that were not cost prohibitive which made me pleasantly surprised. It's a great mix of vintage industrial meets modern and the staff were really nice but that could of been because I had a three pound rabbit/pup in my bag. Everyone is nicer to me when I have G.G. with me--I digress.
The best part of Rolling Greens (in my humble opinion) was their little culinary section where they sold tabletop items, cook books and spices. This French Farm salt nearly dropped me to my knee's:
I can't think of sweeter packaging-blond wood, galvanized metal, simple typography and twine? Sublime. I didn't buy but I think that it will go on my list of things that I want--badly.
