New Year: New Life: Plant Life

Happy New Year. Happy 2019. Happy you. Happy us. Happy plants.  Sophie Lee wrote for NBC "Houseplants are good for your health — and not just for their visual beauty. Why? They essentially do the opposite of what we do when we breathe: release oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide. This not only freshens up the air, but also eliminates harmful toxins. Extensive research by NASA has revealed that houseplants can remove up to 87 per cent of air toxin in 24 hours. Studies have also proven that indoor plants improve concentration and productivity (by up to 15 percent!), reduce stress levels and boost your mood — making them perfect for not just your home but your work space, too."

It's the Little Things.

Before the beautiful madness of the holidays, we like to focus as much as we can on the little things, the spaces in between. The subtleties, the light, the refraction, the one flower that is just a bit brighter, richer than the rest and perhaps the smallest bud. A new space and the newness of our collection is giving us so many opportunities to notice the little things. And with one of our own on her way down the aisle with her beloved this weekend, its really the details, the little things we are loving.  Come in and enjoy the little things. The texture, the smell, the taste of chocolate, the littlest bouquet. Come for the spot of art, come...
