Aren’t these the cutest little topiaries? They make my heart smile. I just love them.

I bought these super cute white vintage urns a while back at an antique store.

I love it when you find something and your heart starts to pitter pat and you know that you can’t go home without them.

That’s what happened when I saw these.

I have had them on the bookshelf, but they just didn’t quite fulfill their purpose in life yet-until now.
