Trip to Terrain- part 2

There was so much to look at when I visited Terrain. It was a bit chilly so I ducked indoors for a bit to warm up before I headed back outdoors. They had several greenhouses and then the main store which also included their cafe. When I was there the cafe was closed for a private party. :( It was expensive anyways.

The orchid greenhouse. Before I moved I had the most beautiful orchid. I kept it alive for over 3 years and it had outgrown its container last year. But any size orchid pot I found locally was too small. For some reason my orchid did not take well to the move. Maybe somebody dropped it? Who knows. But by the time I visited Terrain I knew there was no hope for my beloved orchid. So I was a bit sad when I finally found a large enough pot for it. Also pictured are tiny little stools (perfect for displaying houseplants and I could probably make them!) and spools of twine.

A good idea for plant markers. I have plenty of twigs around here to make this happen!

Inside Terrain married plants with skincare. If I had some money burning a hole in my pocket I would have picked up a few of these. Soaps, lotions, salt scrubs, and any other lux item you'd want in your Xmas stocking.

They also had a whole department of housewares. I could have spent all day in there. I've decided that I need to make myself some linen dish clothes and stencil or stamp them.

If I visit a place that I really love I always pretend that if the store let me take anything home for free what would it be? It would have been these plates. They would match my all white dish theme but add interest with texture. I really, really love these. And I need another plate like another hole in the head, but they still speak to me. I want to serve a fresh spinach salad with fresh herbs and flower buds (all from my garden) on them. *le sigh*
