The beauty of boxwood and a boxwood giveaway!

Hi there! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! There is boxwood and there is boxwood. I am so excited to have discovered a beautiful new line of persevered boxwood that is outstanding. They are a natural compliment to the many planters of all varieties, that I carry....tole, porcelain, stone and silver. Extremely elegant and they truly work in any style room. To me, boxwood both in and outdoors is a no brainer. I love boxwood so much that I could see myself as president of the NBA. That would be the National Boxwood Association. And no,I don't think such a thing exists but if it did I would run for office:)

 So today a look at boxwood in action (with  focus on using them indoors)  and then a look at the beautiful new line I am carrying how and I am using them in my own home. Do you like the look? Perhaps already have boxwood somewhere? Tell me about it! And finally details on a boxwood giveaway on the bottom!
