So my daughter left for Army Basic Training yesterday and I've been feeling a little down. Today I decided that I needed some retail therapy, so after work I headed over to Anthropologie. Honestly, when I walk into that place the instant eye candy makes me want to crawl into one of their display beds and hang out for a few days. If you have one near you, you must go for a visit. I had the nicest sales woman too. I don't know her name, but I would like to say HELLO, and thank you! Yes, I gave her the name of our blog. I hope she enjoys it!
So, as you can see above, I bought a few things. Have you seen this Decorate book yet? It is by the woman who has the blog decor8. She has a fabulous sense of style! I love her mix of vintage and modern and I could easily live in any of the rooms she features. See those 3 little bowls? I got those for $2.50 each. I love them for a variety of things like olives when I have company over, jewelry on my dresser, herb butter, and a million other things. They are little and I love the happy colors. My splurge today was the tablecloth that all of this is resting on. I paid $78 for it. Don't tell my husband. It was hard considering I can sew, but the colors in this were so fabulous I couldn't resist. This picture does not do it justice.
Last, my husband walked in while I was putting my make-up on this morning holding these. We no longer have to take (steal) them in the early morning hours from our neighbor in the alley because we now have our own. I've been burning a lilac candle for the past month while I wait for them to bloom. Our lilacs were a couple of weeks late in blooming this year because of the cold weather. I will savor the smell of these beauties for the next week. I'm pretty sure heaven smells like this.
Tell me what fun things you have bought for your home lately... I'd love to hear.
