Melissa and I were touring around Houston today, visiting West Elm because Cassandra had sweetly given her a gift card for her birthday and she had not yet used it. I have come down to Houston to check the life Melissa has put together for herself. What a great city! She lives up in the Gallery area which is a mecca of great shops and wonderful restaurants. We were in Highland Village which has stores like Z gallery, Quatrine, Mecox Garden, Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware and West Elm, all within a two block area. While in West Elm, we came across a lot of Christmas decorations and one of the items that really stood out to use were these beautiful topiaries made of boxwood in the shape of a square. This neat birch twig door holder was also really classic and fun and allows you to hang a wreath without hammering a hole into your door.
Boxwoods are everywhere in Houston. We have seen so much of it in the beautifully gardens here!
