Remember when my wonderful husband surprised me for Mother's Day with a beautiful ivy heart topiary? What a sweetheart. I decided that I wanted to start a collection of topiary plants because I love them so much. A few months ago my amazing friend Colette (who has been off being fabulous in Europe for the past 3 years) was home for a visit and we had such a great time having lunch at our favorite cafe and browsing the shops downtown. I was delighted to find this beautiful topiary that simply had to come live at my house. It is doing really well in my kitchen. (The ivy heart topiary went through a bit of a rough patch, but is doing much better in my dining room without so much light.)
And I got the great news that Colette's job is looking to transfer her back to "the states" (as she now calls it) by May of 2013!!!!! That just made my day!!!
