I wanted to show a few more photos from Horton's. I also want all of you who Facebook to know you can find Horton's there. I always love to see nests with eggs in them...even these fake ones. Aren't the purple flowers pretty?
This nest is in a potted tree , at the check out counter. I am thinking of making lots of faux nests to mix with real ones I have found. I will use them on the mantle for spring decorating.
This is one of the big display at Horton's. I like the mixture of tin items with mercury glass and silver pieces. It all goes well with any colors you would like in your decorating theme.
This mantle is an awesome piece , made of oak. The lovely scroll work is wood also. Mrs. Horton said they saved this from a house in town that was being torn down. So happy it is saved to be loved again. Beautiful.
This little fake fireplace , adorable. This is a metal surround. The log inside has orange papers resembling a glowing fire. Sweet.
Tin buckets, crates, and stars....love them. A couple of bunny molds. So many wonderful things to see and buy in this store.
Winter winds howled all evening here...although it is blowing snow once in a while it's not unbearably cold yet. The ground is still warm and melts the snow. :)
I will have laundry to do today. That can keep me busy. It's an exercise workout also...up and down the stairs to the laundry in the basement. I miss the days of my utility room being near to the kitchen. :(
Wishing all of you a safe day with some joy. XO
I always enjoy your Horton's posts, Susie. Thanks for taking us along again. That salvaged mantel is fabulous. What a shame it would have been so see that discarded. Love all the tin, the bunny molds, the birds nests and eggs. Oh, it reminds me of spring and I so very much long for it. We are still buried in snow here, and that wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't so horribly cold. But I will not complain. No, I won't. I'm not going to. Honest. :) Hugs, NancyReplyDelete
Nancy, It truly would have been a shame to throw out that beautiful mantle. When I see something saved for another life time...it thrills me. Blessings , xoxo, SusieDelete
Oh how I enjoy your Horton's visit. Such lovely things. I love bird nests and those were so darling.ReplyDelete
I get my exercise doing laundry too. Our Laundry room at the Vila is down stairs. But I need that exercise.
Getting my bags packed for Oregon. Getting very excited.
Wanda, I know you will have wonderful time on your get away. You can visit Horton's on facebook. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Looks like such fun shopping! I am in love with the hutch with the tin and mercury glass...such a pretty combination...and it is a beautiful spring display! Thanks for sharing, Susie!ReplyDelete
Linda, I wish I had more room here..I love hutches, especially for nice books . I am thinking of making some nest filled with faux eggs and add some flowers...for spring. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Ah...spring decor! So many treasures that would be fun to have.ReplyDelete
Deb, I go there to see what is going to be in style and come home with new things or at least many new ideas. :):) Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Sure sounds like a fun store. I love that unusual blue.ReplyDelete
Munir, This is a family owned and operated store..It's part hardware, green house and emporium. I love every season there. Blessings, xoxo, SusieReplyDelete
I always love a Horton's visit. It looks so Spring like there. Seeing all those flowers and birds nests makes me happy!ReplyDelete
Kathy, I am excited to go back and see what all has changed at the store. They were in the process or rearranging the layout. The hardware part rarely changes. :):) Hope you are staying warm there. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Susie, that oak mantel is gorgeous. I love all the wood work and design on it. They already have so many things out for Spring at Horton's. I also love the little nests with eggs, like you. And I like how they draped the greenery over the small fireplace, so charming. I sure wish I could go into that store and shop with you, Susie. Wouldn't that be nice.ReplyDelete
Have a sweet weekend.
Sheri, I would have love to be able to use that mantle here. I am truly going to try to make some fake nest to put some colorful eggs in . I thought it would be nice to decorate with them in spring...it's only 52 more days from now. :) Yes, I wish there could be a bloggers convention for everyone to meet up and get to know each other in person. Blessings for a fun filled weekend, love you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Susie- Hortons is just amazing in every season! I love all the things you find there---there is just so much inspiration there! You could rally go crazy there. xo DianaReplyDelete
Diana, I keep thinking I'll buy one of those olive buckets but they are around 65 dollars. I did see some small ones ...so many I could get one of them. I'm loving all the nest and eggs. Blessings for a great weekend, hope it's not so snowy. xoxo, SusieDelete
I am with you on the basement laundry Susie...it is definitely a workout! So many beautiful things to see at Horton's. That would be a bad place for me to visit cause I would stay way too long just looking :)ReplyDelete
Karen, Those basement laundries will keep our behinds from sagging.LOL If you go to any of the Horton's market events...they give out samples of their homemade fudges all thru the event. They have coffee and cookies sometimes. You would love this truly genuine Christian family. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
These displays are really tasteful and elegant. Thank you for sharing the photos.ReplyDelete
Hi Karen, There's so many cute decorating ideas at this store. The family that owns it are true Christians and display the 10 commandments at the corner of their parking lot.:) Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Oh Susie, I always live your visits to Hortins! They are so gifted to out their displays together like that!!! Who doesn't love bird nests??? The mantle is gorgeous and reminds me of my grandmothers! I will have to find a picture of it sometime!! They truly built those old homes with love and grandeur. I seem to do laundry in stages...a load or two a day.ReplyDelete
Gert, I love to know that your grandmother had a mantle as nice as this oak piece. I am trying to make a bird's nest...gaaa...I am not as good as a bird.:):) When my laundry room was next to the kitchen I would do laundry every day just about. It was so nice too. Blessings, stay warm, xoxo, SusieDelete
Those are all beautiful things. Thanks. I may look at their website because I love little bird nests too. Hope you're enjoying the weekend.ReplyDelete
Nonnie, I hope you do look up Horton's on Facebook. I am sure you'll enjoy it. Hope you and your hubby are enjoying your weekend so far. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Well now I want to go to Horton's! I love all of the red and white in your last post. I need to see what I can dig out for Valentine's day decorations. And I love birds nests too, and I have some! Somewhere in that basement of mine! Thanks for the heads up on the spring open house!ReplyDelete
Cindy, I just now found my kitchen towel that says Cook with love...it's like a valentine. :) I know we all have things we just need to dig out or find. LOL. Hope you find your valentines. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
I love reading your Hortons posts! It's so much to tag along through the pictures you share! That mantle is so nice! I hope have a wonderful weekend!ReplyDelete
Pilar, I have been thinking of the red jacket I have , I could wear it with a cream turtle neck top I have ...to get into the Valentine's spirit. Oh honey, that mantle is a true crafted piece. I fear those lovely days are gone. I told Mrs. Horton the scroll work would be made with a pastry bag full of plaster these days. LOL. Bless you , xoxo, SusieDelete
Love the nests Susie..Great idea for Spring Decorating..Thanks for taking me back to Hortons..Enjoy your weekend..ReplyDelete
Hi Missy, I am ready to see some real flowers..Although he fake ones still give us some color now. Hope you have a great Sunday, blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Purple always reminds me of Spring...purple and yellow, let alone the birds' eggs (fake or not)...:)JPReplyDelete
