Window Shopping - Sort of...

I was browsing through a few websites the other day and ran across a few interesting and beautiful items.  I love window shopping... on line and in person!

This butterfly centerpiece was something that caught my eye.  I think it would look beautiful on a table set for a lovely spring brunch.  I love the mix of greenery (albeit silk.. not real). Available at Grandin Road.

There is also a matching butterfly wreath.  

Now, I'm not sure I would ever buy or use these... but some creative soul could put these to an interesting use... cabbage leaf placemats.  Available at Grandin Road. 

Perhaps cabbage is the in thing for 2012.  Here is a cabbage swag for your front door.  Available at Grandin Road. 

I LOVE this tapered pedestal cake stand from the Martha Stewart Collection at Macy's.  I purchased one of these!  (who could resist?)  Available at Macy's. 

Another spring time inspired piece of table decor from Grandin Road.  A moss table runner.  I saw this and immediately thought about an Easter table, or using it on a sideboard during Easter.  How would you use this?

The new Martha Stewart Collection song bird china is beautiful.  It immediately reminded me of my friend Elaine. 

I DO NOT need another piece of dishware, but these are from the new Skylands Blue collection that is part of the Martha Stewart Collection at Macy's.  Tempting... very tempting. 

This Victorian platter was interesting and it caught my eye.. Available at Grandin Road, this is something I could see my friend Andrew owning.. or perhaps Josh and Brent. 

I'm a sucker for a good kitchen tool and I think this new hand beater/mixer from the Martha Stewart Collection may be the next addition.  I can only think it would be easier to use this than to hand whisk egg whites! 

From the good folks at Williams Sonoma, these delightful "hugs and kisses" smores for Valentine's Day would be oh so cute to give to that special someone.  I wonder how hard it would be to make these... hmmmm...

Don't you just love computer screen shopping?! I just happened upon your blog and it is too cute! Your post today made me wish of summer and spring days where I could throw a lovely picnic outside and use the fabulous centerpieces...alas, January it is. I love the Williams Sonoma treats though, perfect for the season. Hope you have a wonderful week and Happy Monday!!

Very cute items! Of course, my favorite is the bird plates. :) I saw them on Macy's online, but have not seen them in person yet. Will have to check those out as well as the cake pedestals. Spring can't arrive soon enough.
