Old Navy Swings into Spring

A Gorgeous Garden Shop

Good morning, dear friends!  It is raining cats and dogs on this Tuesday morning.  I don't mind though because April showers bring May flowers and it can't come soon enough.  Speaking of flowers...

Awhile ago, I wrote a post about my favorite nursery in the whole world.  The name of it is Greenfield Hill Nursery and it is located in picturesque Fairfield, Connecticut.  It is owned by a wonderful guy named Billy and his beautiful bride.

The garden shop is a menagerie of adorable accessories for the garden.  They have everything from hostess gifts to one-of-a-kind, can't-live-without garden accoutrements.

The nursery always reminded of a movie set of a Nora Ephron movie.  Can't you just picture Meryl Streep walking out of the door in a darling garden hat? 

This was taken this week.  These are the early Spring annuals that are in bloom! 

Too cute for words.  I want these bunnies. Now.

Those little succulents make great hostess gifts! The best part they are candles!

What a sweet side table!

What a statement these would make at the front door!

Great selection of birdhouses!

I would never be late again if I owned this adorable clock!


Would love to see this lit up at night and hung in a screened porch.

Garden stools are so in right now.  Love them.

So if you're in the neighborhood of Fairfield, stop into Greenfield Hill Nursery and say hello to Billy and his bride.  
Tell them Katie sent you and she said to give you a 90% discount! hee hee

Hope your day is filled with sunshine!

Speaking of sunshine, my girl, Gypsy, had a makeover yesterday and wanted to show y'all the final result.

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.


  1. I have to go there when I am in CT thanks for the tip!

  2. Oh wow...what a gorgeous shop and even better, it is near me!!! Enjoy this lovely, rainy day! xoxo

  3. Katie,
    what a gorgeous shop! There's on in CA, Roger's Gardens, that kind of reminds of this one. It's been in business for years and has everything you can imagine. Nothing gets you in the mood for spring like beautiful flowers, bunnies and birdhouses!
    P.S. I've sent you an e-mail.

  4. Love it! Wish we had a place like that here. I love those bunnies. They too would be coming home with me. Gypsy looks adorable.

  5. Hi katie,
    Love Gypsy's bubble gum pink accessories - adorable makeover:)

    What a wonderful nursery! It'd be addictive to shop for garden goodies there!

  6. WHAT a very gorgeous garden shop. I love it. I can't wait until our Spring nurseries open. We can't plant outside until after Memorial Day here for fear of freezing. xo Diana

  7. Wow you are not kidding..gorgeous shop indeed!! Those bunnies are sooo cute, I would love to have those around here in the spirit of Easter!

  8. love the garden shop, bringing hope of spring on the horizon. I have to tell you my favorite picture was of Gypsy. She is too cute, and with the bright pink accessories you won't need a flash light at night, should you need to get up.

  9. I follow your nice blog quite a long time. It is a pleasure. Almost every time I have to laugh out loud.
    Thank you!!

    1. Thank you so much for reading my blog and your kind words.

  10. Love that shop - the bunnies and oh the clock! Gypsy looks gorgeous in pink!

  11. Katie, Such a gorgeous nursery and I love that first picture with all of the annuals in bloom.. so pretty. Those bunnies are adorable and would look so pretty as part of any vignette. I can't wait for our local nursery to get summer flowers in. The temps are still cool here and the gray and rain keeps coming.. so tired of the mud! All of a sudden the temps will warm and it will be a feeding frenzy at our local garden store;) xxL
