A Gift to all My Design Blogging Sisters

If I were coming to your house for Thanksgiving or for the Holidays I would bring you this:
A Bloembox.
Whatever Bulb Flower is on the top of the box is the live version ready to plant inside. This is the White Dazzler Amaryllis.

There is also a Paperwhite Narcissus. I also have a surprise. The very talented Kees Terberg was kind enough to help with Beadboard's window featuring Fairies and a tree made of Bloemboxes. I learned about him from Lee Ann and Fabulously French. Look at the magic he worked with them.

The paperwhites.....

A Beadboard Fairie over the Red Lion Amaryllis.

And our favorite lady perched on it. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you marvelous bloggers and readers. If I could, I would send you each one...... Thanks Kees, you did a wonderful job and we are very grateful....:) To see more of Kees's work, google Kees Terberg Fairies....


  1. Hello Maryanne,

    The Bloemboxes are so elegant, and the colors are luscious. You must be thrilled with the look of the shop window.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family,


  2. Hi Maryanne, those gifts are so beautiful and very new to me, and I thank you so much for the virtual gift, eventhough I have just met you at Jermaine´s thanksgiving table. You are very nice.
    Muchos cariños

  6. Maryanne,

    Love this post! I'm so glad Tall Husband and I stopped by your wonderful shop on our way to Thanksgiving with family. They loved the gifts you recommended...the Bloembox and the carved French chicken. Thanks.

  7. Maryanne ~ these are just stunning! I love them everyone. What wonderful gifts your bring and the little fairies that were added for your window display are the perfect touch added to the perfect gift. Hope your holiday weekend is most enjoyable and thanks for introducing us to the lovely Bloembox{es}. ~jermaine~

  8. I've heard of, read about and seen many fantastic gifts in my day and this is one of the most creative and charming I have ever seen. The idea is brilliant and the execution -- well, brilliantly beautiful.

    Your idea would be a HUGE success over here. I can imagine giving it to everyone I know.


  9. Absolutely beautiful photos, love the colours.
