greengate


 Are you familiar with GreenGate? They're a lovely company out of Denmark with a sweet range of goods. Unfortunately, they don't ship to the States...


The 'Molly' White and the 'Check' Green oilcloth cosmetic bags just arrived in the mail. An unexpected gift from a far-away friend. The 'Molly' on the tag made her think of me. Don't you love when that happens?


I hope you have an excellent weekend filled with lots of sunshine and maybe a surprise or two.

If you have a moment, take a peek at the following: I Love Pretty Little Things,  Common Ground,  My Romantic Home,  and French Country Cottage.

Greengate is wonderful, so fresh and pretty. Their Sophia range is my favourite just now but there are so many good things - your new cosmetic bags are beautiful.

Such sweet prints on those cosmetic bags. Now, you just need a little trip.

I love Greengate products! There are some specialty stores that stock it here in Australia but everything normally sells very quickly! Aren't the colours spectacular!

Best wishes,
Natasha.

No I have not heard fo Green gate. But I like what I'm seeing. They are soooo pretty! And they match your blog!! (I've had to work around similar mail restrictions before. Just have them mailed to a friend in Europe and then she can mail to you. A round about way to get it, but it works.)

I am a HUGE fan of Greengate! It's a big shame that they don't have their own shops as they are hard to come by in the UK too. Whenever I see something I always snap it up! It was floral popcorn tubs last week! Soooooooo cute!

Have a lovely day!

I don't like leaving 'sales' comments but just found your blog and love the playhouse btw. Greengate don't ship to the US but I have an online shop and stock some greengate and i do ship to the States(the VAT of 21% comes off at checkout too btw). I hope you don't mind me mentioning this here and I won't be offended if you delete it. My website is at www.garrendennylane.com

Mindy said...

I'm coveting that chandelier! I stopped by to look at the playhouse Centsational Girl featured and I LOOOVE the look of your blog. I shall now poke around to look at your other things. :)

Cassandra said...

WOW where to start . . .

I am IN LOVE with your blog! Stunning!

I adore that darling house!!!

And I can not believe how CUTE these cosmetic bags are!!! I quickly rushed over to the Greengate link you posted, and when I saw in your post they did not ship to the states, I almost wished I didn't because I wanted EVERYTHING in that catalog!

Such a lovely blog, I will visit again soon for sure!
