Spring Gardening in a new Gorgeous way !

Want something new and different for spring gardening ? I have it for you

These are my new favorite things for spring (other than fashion). BloemBox Luxury Boxed Seeds, Flowers and Vegetables Garden in a gift box. I have this one below (Humming Bird Habitat Mixed Flowers) and just adore it !

First of all the little box with the flowers and in this case, hummingbird, on top is reason enough to buy it (it'a about 5 inches tall and 3.5 inches across) and just display it.. mine's right here on my desk hutch and it's just pretty, cheerful and makes me smile, but what a gorgeous gift too ! Beyond PRETTY !

But here's the thing, in these gorgeous packages are BloemBox premium flower or vegetable seeds. Seeds are channeled between sheets of biodegradable tissue paper that can be cut-to-size and planted in an outdoor patio container, raised bed or prepared garden bed. The plantable tissue paper holds the seeds in place and makes planting easy. Simply unroll, place in a shallow furrow in the soil and cover with ¼” to ½” potting soil. When the seeds sprout, the tissue paper completely biodegrades into the soil. Thin seedlings for vigorous growth and bloom. Unplanted seeds remain viable up to two years if kept in a dry, cool, consistent temperature location.

So it really is a GARDEN inside ! You can plant these in pots if you have a small balcony, deck or yard, or in the garden if you have the room.

They also have Veges, single flower types, edible flowers, gift tins and, as shown above, the MOST gorgeous Organic Fragrant Sachets in the same type of gorgeous gift box (perfect for the anti-gardener). 
The seed boxes have a cute little gift card attached, inside there are other goodies, including instructions and in the case of a mixed garden, like min, individual flower ribbons and descriptions.

The best part ? They're ridiculously inexpensive for the gorgeous things they are. Perfect easter or spring gfts and don't forget to treat yourself.
Touch of Europe sell these online (and ship all over the world) or in their Atlanta, Georgia store at 1765 Roswell Road Marietta, GA 30062 and you get Free Shipping on all orders over $50

Seriously good. Featured in InStyle Magazine this month.

Yes, InStyle magazine has once again picked up on one of those great things to have we never knew we needed until now and featured one of the loveliest gourmet product lines in their gift guide on the Gifts for "the Serious Foodie" page

The SAL de Ibiza, fleur de sel gourmet salt from Ibiza Spain. A choice of top chefs and foodies alike, this salt from the pristine waters of Ibiza Spain is distinctive and pure. Ibiza has been producing salt for thousands of years using methods introduced by salt mad Phoenicians.

On the southern most tip of the island, the salt fields (Las Salinas), have been in use for over 2500 years. As the water evaporates during the hot summer months, a sparkling layer of pure salt is left on the bottom of the lakes. The Carthaginian's traded salt, they used to call it "white gold, so it has a rich and wonderful history, important to Ibiza and Gourmands of the world as a reliable, pure and distinctive source of Fleur de Sal.

This marine salt, harvested within the nature reserve of the ancient Phoenician salt works, continues to be one of Spain and Mother Nature’s purest gifts. The symbiosis of traditional craftsmanship, plentiful sun and light winds, gives us this wholly-natural sea-salt still replete with ocean zest.

My order is in... I'm gifting myself as a serious foodie :)

The perfect treat, gift, indulgence and basically one of the necessary food groups.

First up, the best stuff is found on Touch of Europe
OMG, if you can't find SOMETHING on that site to pamper you or anyone you know, then you're just not looking.

Favorite things on the site that I've tried...... almost everything in Chocolate Decadence :)

These chocolates include the famous French FAUCHON chocolates (Godiva can't hold a candle to it, if you can believe that) as well as a ton of other luxury imported chocolates in milk, white, dark, truffles, pralines and more.


Yes, these European imported luxury chocolates are a little more expensive, but look at them, they are SO WORTH IT. A little goes a long way and it's such a gorgeous luxurious gift for just about anyone and I'll guarantee they taste even better than they look, which is a tall order.

That's todays FAVORITE THING
Try it !

Ok, it's not often you see deals like this on those expensive luxury boutique designer products, but there ya have it... 40% off any "Pairfum" brand item with coupon code PF40 used in checkout.

With the help of perfumiers, inventors, suppliers, customers, friends and family the range was born.
