Something I was recently turned onto is preserved boxwood topiaries. These are not the plastic, fake topiaries that don’t look real, oh no, these are hand made from real boxwood plants and are specially treated to retain their deep green color. They even have a faint hay-like smell that makes them seem more natural than just a plastic topiary. I have only had two fake (plastic) topiaries in my life and I had recently thrown them out, vowing to go only “real” from now on.
Those of you who know me know I love antiquing. And one of the things I’ve been really wanting for awhile now is a vintage olive bucket. If you’re not familiar with them, they are old metal buckets primarily that were used for gathering olives during the harvest, primarily in Italy and France.
I’ve decided to do a post every Friday called “Friday Favorites.” I have always loved the weekly posts that some of the blogs I follow do, and I’d like to try to do the same here. I thought that every Friday I would simply post something that I like and want to share. I’ll mainly focus on home decor and fashion, featuring items or trends that I love or that speak to me. And I’d love your opinion! Let me know what you’re interested in seeing, and please give me feedback on what you’ve liked or not liked.
