Rice *New* Winter Collection '07

Blogging about Susanne Schjerning made me think of Rice in Denmark and how excited I am to soon be in on of my favorite shops in Hannover again. I can't wait to go away next month, this time of year is filled with much excitement and anticipation for me because I love spending the autumn months with my husband's family and our friends in Germany. It's all such a special, almost magical time for us.


Germany is so beautiful in the cooler months (ah, Oktoberfest!) and I love watching everything change from green to gold. It's like one big Robert Frost poem unfolding before our eyes. And when I arrive, since we sublet a 2-room suite, I always head to Esplanade for Rice stuff. I buy inexpensive candle holders, a few pillows, and a vase for fresh flowers. You can't spend time in Europe without flowers in your room. And for our balcony, I always buy a few pretty plants. I find that I have to do these things to make it feel more personal and cozy. We have some things there in storage that I pull out to, which helps me make a very quick mental transition from our home here to our place there.

Here are some product shots from the Rice winter collection. This is one of those lines where I find myself liking everything and the best part, it's all so affordable.


I'm not sure where it's sold in the states, but if you are interested, perhaps you can contact Rice directly for store location information.
