J brings you a re-cap of the June Market at Dallas - including some of his personal favorite things.
Two great items from Winward - a Hyacinth terrerium and a Magnolia blossom in a retro inspired glass container.
Cute Winward topiaries in a variety of colors - take your pick, you can't go wrong.
Beautiful containers and a novel tea light and holder were also great finds in the WInward showroom.
J marvels in wonderment over the oversized orchids that Matt Wood pointed out. Fantasy flowers were one of the underlying themes of the June Market.
At right J checks out a Winward Ginko tree.
J discovers a fun Bamboo inspired vase at Hosley International. A colorful vase at right with a novel wire handle from La La.
"I'm ready for you to pour the wine, now." J with Royal Green's Millie, the designer of J's number one pick for Pre-mades, a soft and airy confection of an arrangement. Incredible!!!!!
Suspended bottle vases were a fun venue at Royal Green.
J was enamored with the White and Yellow sunflower arrangement in Allstate's front window - another great fantasy flower. The antique Chinese bottle at right was one of many containers in the arrangement below. Don't you wish these containers were available?
J loves the elephant watering can at left and the egg baskets at right are an inspired design from California Floral Imports.
IMAX again has great decorative accessories including these flower themed items.

A few more notes at Global Views. And some fun wall décor from Moore International - check out the JTV set this September for J's new friend.
