Lilly Pulitzer, Inspiration

I urge all the ladies and gents to dust off their Lilly a little early this year. Lilly was always an inspiration to me in fashion and jewelry design. There's no denying my tastes lean toward Palm Beach. Who doesn't love a dash of whimsy? Well here we find ourselves honoring a legend...Long Live Lilly Pulitzer: Darling Designer and Queen of Pink and Green!
*Wear your Lilly into The Boxwood Cottage this week, April 8-13, and receive 30% off of any jewelry purchase!

Thankful for a Lovely Day in the Lowcountry

The Boxwood Cottage Happy St Patricks Day - Topiary Challenge Continues

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  I know we have another 16 days in the Real World - but TONIGHT, in Habersham, it's St. Patrick's Day!  From 5 - 8:30 PM Habersham Marketplace will be hosting The Beaufort Irish Festival's annual "Evening in Ireland"!  Live music!  Irish Beer!  Irish Foods!  Firepits!  Come on down.  It will be lovely (imagine my saying that with a faux Irish lilt...).

As it stands, the SC Topiary Challenge continues.  I am seriously considering some kind of prize for the person who is able to direct me to live, growing, indoor topiaries.  I know they are around here somewhere.  If this challenge fails you can bet I will be hoarding them all summer and busing a herd of topiaries across the Mason Dixon to Habersham!  Topiaries deserve SC and SC deserves proper topiaries!

Chinoiserie at The Boxwood Cottage

We love a touch (or a heap!) of Chinoiserie at The Boxwood Cottage.  Like any exotic touch it adds a bit of interest to a space or a vignette. 
As usual we will be in the Cottage until 7 PM on Friday (tomorrow) for Habersham Marketplace's Music on Market Friday evenings!  Davis Marshall will be filling the air with music while the fire pits add just the warmth we need on these chilly Lowcountry nights. Shucked-while-you-watch local oysters from Lady's Island Oyster Co. will be available before you head into one of our delicious restaurants here at the Marketplace.  Starting tomorrow evening from 5:30 - 8:30 PM right here on Market in gorgeous Habersham, Beaufort, South Carolina. 

Touches of Chinoiserie for your home ranging in price from $6 - $300 at The Boxwood Cottage.

The SC Topiary Challenge

I LOVE a topiary.
Dear reader of The Boxwood Cottage, do you know how difficult it is to find an indoor topiary in South Carolina? This is now one of my life's challenges.  If you can offer some insight on this, I will reward you.  I am not sure how, but I will find a way. 
I even went so far as to "Ask a Master Gardener" and she was puzzled, too.  I called the only place she suggested, Hyams Nursery in Charleston.  They were more than confused about why I would want to have a topiary inside. Maybe in the South this is unnecessary.  Maybe it only happens in the North where we must nurture indoor greenery (in shapes) to help us limp through the desperate dark days of winter (dark at 4:30, not kidding, and it's not that close to the Arctic Circle). 
I know exactly where to go in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, even Connecticut.  South Carolina? No clue. Savannah seems like the city that really should have an excess of topiaries. Zilch (in my searches).
Consider this post the throwing of the Topiary Gauntlet. Have at it dear readers.  Please someone help!  We must have some living, breathing, growing, green, well-trimmed topiaries at The Boxwood Cottage soon! 
This is the ultimate display.  The POTS are so good.  SO GOOD.

Bunny Williams pop-up shop in The Hamptons? I think? Regardless there is blue & white (hello!), and topiaries in URNS.  See this is New England where topiaries know where to be.  Wait, do these look artificial?  If this is, in fact, Bunny's place, I don't think she would do faux topiaries?  Will I be driven to the same insanity?

New in Store - week of Feb 4!

Gorgeous new pieces are flooding in the door nearly every day!  Please note our new hours - Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday we will be in the store starting at Noon.  Closing at 3 o'clock PM except on Fridays, we close at 6 o'clock due to some wonderful Marketplace activity like Music on Market or First Friday. 

Fantastic faux bamboo Chinese Chippendale side chairs.  I feel like I have already talked about these.  They are aluminum, from the 50s-60s.  Original brown gloss paint finish (very nice condition) with blue-green brocade seats (these would not be hard to change if desired).  Set of SIX side chairs, $990. 

New! Excellent Phillipine Bamboo coffee/side table with glass top.  Vintage, great condition.  $85

New! Adorable side table in faux bamboo style.  Wood, painted, with original brass ball hardware (top).  $60

Who doesn't LOVE a bar cart?!?!  I do.  As a matter of fact they fall into another one of my obsession catagories.  This one is vintage, probably 70s-80s.  Great condition, great lines.  $120.  A steal if you look at the price of new carts, or even vintage ones online!

Friday Fun at Habersham

TGIF!  Another fun Friday is in store (and on the street as it happens) at the Habersham Marketplace.  The Boxwood Cottage will be open until 7 o'clock PM this evening.  Live Charleston Bluegrass band Boss Hawg will be showering the outdoor Marketplace and adjacent fire pits with excellent tunes to warm you from the inside out.  Speaking of warming, Habersham is happy to host Sea Eagle this evening serving incredible fresh Lowcountry Boil, Gumbo, or Steamed Shrimp for only $5/dinner.  There will also be vendors and shopping and deliciousness all around.  Please join us! 
Also I would like to give a congrats to Berto's Tex Mex (our neighbor) who is proud to open their expanded dining room!  More seating means more Queso for everyone (see below...). 

Excellent finds in store at The Boxwood Cottage - lots of new pieces this week have graced us with their presence.  Maybe they will grace your home soon? 

Those of you who know me know how I feel about Carolina Queso.  Berto's has the perfect blend.  Take it from an expert.  And now you can enjoy it in his expanded dining room.  Very exciting to meet the increased demand.  Congrats to Berto's! (photo and design credit unknown)
